Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Encino, CA
I have been working with the transgender community for almost 15 years. I am a member of WPATH and USPATH. I have educated myself by attending conferences, reading literature, participating in online courses, and conferring with colleagues. PLEASE NOTE: Although I am no longer seeing children in general, I will see transgender children and adolescents.
I belong to several LGBTQ therapist associations, I attend conferences given by LGBTQ organizations, and do continuing education. Approximately 40% of my client base at any time is made up of people from the LGBTQ community. My experience includes working with lesbian and gay individuals and couples; gender diverse people; and polyamorous people, among others.
Everyone I see suffers from anxiety at some level. There are many methods for reducing anxiety and I try to teach as many as possible because the more tools one has, the more likely they are to find something that works for them. I also educate people on the physiology of anxiety so they understand what's causing it and why I recommend each technique.
