Transgender Affirming Therapy in Irvine, California
Have you been thinking about your gender identity for as long as you can remember? Or perhaps some awareness has come to the surface recently and you're ready to explore what this means for you. Do you feel trapped and exhausted by playing a role that doesn't seem to fit? Are you worried that exploring your gender identity may lead to rejection by the important people in your life?

Wherever you may be on your personal path, my goal is to support you, be it through gender questioning and exploration, a social and/or physical transition, or even a decision not to transition. We can work together to discover whatever is right for you, at whatever pace feels right.
An important part of my private therapy practice is working with adult clients on gender identity issues. These can vary widely, and include clients who identify anywhere on the gender spectrum as well as those who love them. (Group for partners and spouses. Click here for flyer.)

With this in mind, I strive to create a safe and affirming space for my clients to explore whatever aspects of their lives may need attention. This could include:
