I have worked with several hundred self-identified trans and gender variant clients for 3 decades. I was trained in San Diego and also worked in NY prior to opening my office in Seattle in 1983. I have also supervised and trained many others in this work, especially in the
1980-1990's when there were few providers and nearly no training. I see myself as active in the therapy dynamic, focused on support, guidance and accountability, and humanistic.
I have long followed the evolving Standards of Care and have simultaneously advocated for treating everyone as a unique individual. I do provide the appropriate medical referrals / recommendations.
I am a Preferred Provider on nearly all insurance panels EXCEPT UHC, UBH and Medicaid.
