I have been in Private Practice for 20 years- and worked for UCSF Alliance Health Project for 27.
I have extensive experience working with past and present trauma/abuse issues, substance abuse, grief, attachment, stages of life challenges, gender identity and sexual orientation issues.
I work with clients who have experienced trauma, including violent crime as well as Returning Troops/Veterans-Warriors and their families.
I also assist clients with concerns related to alternative lifestyles, gender expression, sexuality, BD/SM/Ds, sex work, leather and ‘kink’ lifestyles. I provide a safe and professional place for people to further explore these and other issues in their lives. I work with clients on entire spectrum of Gender Identity. I worked in collaboration with Medical Providers for references, referrals and letters of support for Gender related medical services.
My clinical approach is a combination of ‘Psychodynamic" (often exploring current issues in connection with early childhood experiences) and “Cognitive-Behavioral” (exploring the connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors).
