Therapeutic Approach

Affirmative care for the LGBTQIA+ community is more than just a slogan. It requires the clinician to work to develop competencies relevant to our community actively. In my education and continuing professional development, I have focused my work on understanding the process of gender identity development and building resilience in LGBTQIA+ youth. We currently have secure, safe, and professional online sessions available.

However, a mental health diagnosis can sometimes carry a stigma, affecting employment, housing, and relationships. Before making any diagnosis, I will partner with you to consider the benefits and possible consequences.
