Therapy is an interesting thing – many people have preconceived notions of what therapy is or should be. Therapy, to me, is simple. You have some issues in your life that are bothering you – maybe you feel down, maybe you can’t get your relationships to work.
Everything that you’ve tried hasn’t been helpful or, ultimately, hasn’t gotten you where you want to be. That’s where I come in. I can help you pick up your issue, turn it to an angle that maybe you haven’t seen yet, and brainstorm new ways to address it.
I’m rational, pragmatic, and positive in my approach. I won’t give you advice or tell you what to do because I believe the answers are all within you – I help you to find them through my personal and professional experience.
Although it is by no means the sole focus of my practice, I have a significant history working with people living with HIV/AIDS and with the LGBTQ population. I am qualified and knowledgeable on the Benjamin Transgender Standards of Care and have helped many people with their gender transition.
