Paul Voorhies, MSW, LCSW
We don't have a description for this provider yet. Can you help?
He has been my therapist for a few years now, and has always been respectful of my gender identity. As a trans person with a non-standard presentation, it has always been very hard to find mental health practitioners who didn't use that to undermine my gender, but he doesn't do that at all. He is also aware of and respectful of nonbinary identities, and was very willing to help me come out to my very conservative parent. He does sometimes mess up with pronouns, but always apologizes.
Overall, he is very helpful and has a good understanding of the relationship between social marginalization and mental health. He is also very respectful in issues relating to recovery from abuse, and doesn't attempt to coerce you into forgiving your abusers, or anything like that.
