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.
