Straight, gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, pansexual, asexual, trans, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, gender nonconforming, detransitioner/retransitioner, kinky, BDSM, sexworker, vanilla, monogamous, single, polyamorous, even unicorn… we all struggle.  We have suffered trauma.  We all seek happiness.

Life is not about finding yourself... it’s about creating yourself.
— G. B. Shaw

  As someone trans and genderqueer-identified, I understand the terrible effects of stigma, discrimination, trauma, and depression.  I seek to establish a comfortable environment in which we can work together, safely asking questions and making empowered decisions about how to move forward, while simultaneously investigating questions of meaning.

Experienced with individuals, families, and couples, LGBTQIA+, HIV/AIDS, sexuality, alternate lifestyles, artistic professionals, grief and bereavement, addiction, and more, as well as in issues of marginalization and otherness, I am happy to work with people from adolescents to the elderly, of all orientations and expressions.

Let's collaborate to create the richest, happiest life for you possible.


Hours in Manhattan and Westchester.

* Heretic: Deriving from the Greek "Hairetikos" meaning "One who is able to choose."
