I completed graduate level coursework and presented trainings related to gender and sexual identity concerns. I also have seen a high percentage of gender variant individuals in my private practice over the last 7 years (largely in the Longview area).
I continue to complete relevant continuing education in areas related to gender and sexual identity and last completed updated education in summer 2013.
Additionally, throughout my training I served in Division 44 (LGBT Psychology) of APA for several years in various capacities.
In general, I am well trained in a diversity of issues and strive to welcome all people regardless of class, gender, racial/ethnic background, disability status, immigration status, faith practice and age.
I sincerely look forward to helping you. Warm Regards!
Currently, based on my training I use the WPATH standards of care. Yes, I do write recommendation letters and complete drivers license requests for gender changes, hormone therapy and/or surgeries as per the individual client's needs.
