Therapy/Counseling

Specialty Areas: Therapy for teens/adolescents and young adults, multicultural concerns, gender affirming therapy, gender identity concenrns, depression, anxiety, trauma, and life transitions. I am trained in various evidenced based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). However, I practice from an integrated approach combining years of training in attachment, psychodynamic and systems theories.

Assessments

Psychological Testing. Have you been told you have difficulty paying attention? Ever wonder why you think the way you do?

I conduct psychological assessments ranging from cognitive to personality concerns. I also offer hormone readiness evaluations (for offices that do not practice the informed consent model) and write letters for gender affirmation surgeries.  I offer select pro-bono political asylum evaluations.
