Counseling for the LGBTQIA Communities

Work with the LGBTQIA communities is an important part of my practice and I am invested in ensuring that supportive counseling is available to all people who are diverse in gender and/or sexuality.  At Capital Connections, everyone is welcome and an affirming environment in which to explore one's self is provided. 

Within the LGBTQIA population, I have specific education, training, and experience in working with the transgender and gender variant communities. As a member of WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health), I provide affirmative counseling to trans* and gender non-conforming children, adolescents, and adults and am able to provide therapy as well as evaluations and referrals for HRT and GCS in accordance with the most recent version of WPATH's Standards of Care. In addition, I am familiar with local resources for individuals, couples, and families and am happy to help facilitate connection to other local opportunities for support or care that may benefit you or your loved one.

Finally, as part of my work with the LGBTQIA communities, when desired or indicated, I welcome (and really enjoy) working with partners or family members such as parents, siblings, and children as they navigate their own journey within the family system or relationship of which they are a part.
