Everyone has the right to live comfortably and authentically. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and ally, I consider it a privilege to provide support, education and social resources to members of the LGBTQ/gender-expansive community. I specialize in providing individual, couples and family counseling for all who need it, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. All people deserve to be treated with dignity and respect in a safe space.
I am a Certified Transgender Care Therapist through the International Transgender Certification Association (ITCA) and follow the expert guidelines of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health’s (WPATH) Standards of Care. I work with adult clients at all stages of transition: From self-exploration and self-acceptance to coming out to family, friends and work; and provide therapy for anxiety, depression, trauma or other co-existing issues that may exist from gender dysphoria, social pressures or the inability to transition. I provide coping skills, support and education in a nurturing environment. I also provide resources to parents, spouses or other family members of transgender individuals who want to best help and support their loved ones. *It is important to note that as of March 2023 it is illegal in Florida for individuals under age 18 to begin receiving gender-affirming medical care.
