Utah can often feel like a lonely place if you are part of the LBGBTQ+ community. I will provide a safe place to land during your journey in an accepting and non-judgmental setting.
I am proud to offer gender affirming psychotherapy for transgender and gender nonconforming clients. I view gender diversity as normal, not a mental illness.
I work with adults and adolescents. If you're transgender yourself, or if you're a parent of a teen or child who is exploring gender, I can be a support and advocate.
Not everyone who is gender nonconforming is transgender, not everyone wants to 'transition,' and not everyone wants medical intervention. No matter what you eventually decide for yourself, I will be there with support, and resources.
WPATH guidelines (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) maintain that gender non-conformity is NOT a "mental illness" but a natural variation in human gender presentation, & that any attempts to "fix" gender-variant children by conforming them to traditional gender norms is harmful & unethical treatment.
Self-harm is defined as "any self-inflicted action that intentionally induces pain and/or breaks the skin."
Do you have a teen who engages in self-harm and don't know what to do? I can help! I have extensive experience helping youth develop healthy coping strategies and working through thoughts of suicide and self-harm.
If you have found yourself involved with the often complex and overwhelming systems of DCFS or JJS (including reunification, foster care and adoption), I am here for you! I worked in child welfare for 5+ years and can help you work towards a positive outcome.
