We Never Stop Learning

Approach to Therapy

I am a client centered cognitive therapist. My approach is to accept you where you are without judgement. I am interactive and offer insights and opinions when appropriate.

I believe our world view and life experience is built in the framwork our belief systems. Real change occurs at this level.

My perspective on gender identity is we all have it and only I can determine what that identity looks like an means to me. I offer you that same privlege... to determine you own identity! We know who we are but many times we get messages from family, peer, society that who we are is not acceptable. Not honoring our spirit has a way of erroding our hearts to being constantly guarded and hidden for fear of people discovering our truth. I have worked with people in transition since 1997 and know the journey is unique to everyone. There is no "one way" to do this. I am here to help you determine how to create a life for yourself you can love and appreciate. 

I am continuely amazed with this new generation of parents that are willing to understand their gender varient children. I am thrilled our local transchildren have resources and support with the Genices Program at Children's Medical. Education about gender identity has grown and attempted anti trans-legislation has spurred discussion to dismantle the mythology that has been assigned to tran-speople by cis-people. I am hopeful with this generation will define for themselves their gender expression, identity, and expectation. In the face of everything that is happening in our world I believe we can find peace, love, and joy.
