Counseling for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender & Queer Communities
All Parts of YOU are Welcome Here
For many queer people, finding a health care practitioner can be a daunting task. You must take into account many questions: Do I feel safe with them? Will they understand my worldview and my experiences? Do I have to educate them on the social structures which are inherent in my life? Will I be labeled as sick or abnormal? As a queer person myself I can relate to the feelings all of these questions bring up. As a therapist I strive to make sure my clients feel safe, comfortable, understood and accepted for who they are and how they express themselves.
I have been part of a variety of queer communities in my many years living in the bay area. When I use the term queer I refer to a variety of identities or labels with which people may choose to identify themselves, some of them being: gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender (TG), gender queer, gender questioning, non-binary (NB), gender non-conforming (GNC), etc. All of these forms are welcome and celebrated in my practice, as we work together to help you find healing and growth toward joy in your life.
