I am a clinical psychologist, professor, researcher, author, and international speaker with a private practice in Northern California, specializing in helping trans couples, children, youth and their families live authentic lives. I am also the founder & director of the Gender Health Training Institute and a WPATH SOC7 Certified Member & GEI Mentor. I am dedicated to helping clinicians working with transgender/gender expansive clients and their families, build gender affirming practices, through personal and professional journeys that help them provide gender affirming care with confidence that they are on the right path.
“Clinicians will help transgender/gender expansive people and their families survive and thrive, not by focusing on their difficulties, but by recognizing the brilliance, creativity, and resilience in our bonds.”
