LGBTQ Therapy in San Francisco
Feel Safe and Understood
As a member of the LGBTQQI community, there are daily reminders that it’s not always safe to be yourself. Even though the Bay Area is more open and accepting than most places in the country, it can still be hard.
Sexuality and Gender
How you identify in terms of your sexuality and gender is probably only one of the many things that make you the interesting and complex person you are today.
The last thing you may want to have to do in therapy is explain your gender or sexuality. Of course issues around gender or sexuality may come up, but chances are you don't want either of them to be the main focus of the work.
There are a number of issues that are specific to our community, such as alternative relationship structures, gay parenting and internalized and externalized homophobia and transphobia.
You may also be wrestling with something that has little or nothing to do with your sexuality or gender.

While it may be easier today for some people to come out, we still live in a culture where it's necessary to come out in the first place. Needing to hide or keep part of yourself secret can create an environment ripe for fear, rejection or sadness.
LGBTQ Friendly Support
Opening up in therapy is a vulnerable process. You shouldn't have to think twice about whether or not you can be comfortable with your therapist around your gender and sexuality.
It’s my goal to create a safe and welcoming environment for you to craft the life you crave, regardless of what the specific bumps in the road may be.
