Weeds to Wishes Counseling & Consulting
Informed Consent / ICATH Provider Yes
WPATH Standards of Care Yes
I work with children, adolescents, and adults. When working with clients, I am sensitive to how oppression impacts mental health and hinders our ability to find our place in the world. Some issues we can explore together include: LGBTQ issues, traumatic experiences, coming out, family of origin, depression, anxiety, and building shame resilience. I provide affirmative counseling for trans* and gender queer clients. I believe that therapy should be a choice and I do not view gender dysphoria as a mental health issue. I help explore how rigid gender roles negatively impact us all.
I am an active member of National Association of Social Workers (NASW), and World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). I facilitate support groups for parents of gender-variant children through Gender Diversity, and am a current board member of GLSENWA.
I approach my work from a place of empathy, non-judgment, and support. My goal is to help clients feel empowered by their work in therapy, obtain personal growth, and fulfillment, and ultimately lead a more loving, joyful, and authentic life. Special interests: LGBT, poly-aware, sex positive, kink affirmative.
