I am a transgender-affirming psychotherapist who specializes in helping people navigate gender transition journeys, and offers ongoing support for a broad array of other issues. Using a relational, trauma-informed approach, I work with people to gain insight, to practice coping strategies, and to experience growth and healing. My specialties include:

  • Gender identity
  • Gender affirmation / transition
  • Sex and sexuality
  • LGBTQ issues
  • Trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Family-of-origin issues
  • Relationships
  • Spirituality/Soul

I gained expertise in transgender health through my work at Fenway Health in Boston, a national leader in LGBTQ healthcare. In Austin, I am invested in developing local transgender resources, and in assisting people as they navigate transition steps. I provide individual counseling to adults through Discovery Counseling under the supervision of Sara Weber, LPC-S, and offer group counseling for LGBTQ youth in schools through Out Youth.

I am a member of:

  • World Professional Association of Transgender Health
  • National Coalition for Sexual Freedom – Kink and Poly Aware
  • Austin Group Psychotherapy Society

Currently, I am accepting referrals for:

  • Individual counseling, long-term or short-term
  • Transgender health navigation sessions
  • Brief readiness assessments for gender affirmation steps (can provide support letters)
  • Group counseling

As an LPC-Intern, I cannot accept insurance. My hourly rate for individual sessions is $75, with a sliding scale available. For group counseling, I charge $30 per session.
