As a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer (LGBTQ) affirmative therapist in the Los Angeles area, I have the honor of sitting with people as they navigate the layers of gender, sexuality, culture, and race that shape their everyday experiences. Over the last 15 years I’ve worked in this community both as a therapist and as an advocate. If you identify outside of heteronormativity, it is invaluable to work with a therapist who grasps and affirms the breadth of gender and sexual identities. While it is important to acknowledge the impact that heteronormativity plays in your life, my aim is to help you embrace who you are. I provide WPATH letters for clients seeking gender affirming surgery as well.
