Therapy for lesbians, same-sex, LGBT, gay, and queer people, couples, & families

PSYCHOLOGICAL COUNSELING FOR LESBIANS

I have over a decade of experience providing psychological counseling to lesbian women, whether individuals, couples, or families. This experience allows me to work well with those who want to work directly on issues of coming out, heterosexism, and homophobia as well as those who want to work on other issues but with a therapist who understands these important factors in their life.
