"My hope is that this directory will provide enough security and safety for people who seek counseling for a letter of readiness for hormone therapy or surgery, to openly share their concerns about all aspects of their lives. In some cases, individuals have not been totally candid with the therapist about important issues for fear that sharing these things will impact getting the letter. By not being candid, the individual misses out on the opportunity to identify and possibly work on/through issues of depression, anxiety, abuse, self-abuse, etc. that may be causing distress."

I see children, adolescents, and their families for psychiatric evaluation, psychotherapy, parenting education, and/or medication management (ages 3-18 years). People see me for a variety of issues, like anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD. Transgender/gender variant young persons may suffer from feelings of depression and anxiety related to how others feel about their gender and not believing that they can safely express themselves as they feel inside. Many families find it helpful to receive some counseling around how to best support their unique child.Must climb up stairs to get to my office.Currently accept Blue Cross Blue Shield Regence and ODS, soon to be on panels for UBH and MHN.Gender Experience: Gender variant/transgender children, teens, and their families. I work from an affirmative framework with families and children/teens who are gender variant. Sexuality Experience: GLBT youth and families. Before becoming a nurse I worked with GLBT youth program, I ran a support group for GLBT youth. Now I work with GLB adolescents in individual and family therapy. Youth Experience: I specialize in children, teens, and families. I have a master's degree in Advanced Practice Pediatric Nursing and a post-master's in Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing. I have worked as a pediatric nurse.Therapy can help a child or teen to express their needs in a positive way so that parents and schools can best support the young person to reach their full potential.
