I have worked in the mental health field for 30 years. I currently work as a therapist at the Therapy for Women Center. I specialize in working with members of the LGBTQ+ community. My work includes supporting clients with gender and sexual identity issues, the coming out process, finding community supports, couples counseling and supporting gender affirming care.
