I'm a gender specializing psychotherapist with extensive experience & training in working with adolescents (ages 12-25), young adults, adults, and LGBT issues. I offer therapeutic and supportive groups. Areas of specialization include: *Transgender Transition * Coming Out * Depression * Anxiety & Stress Management * Bereavement * Anger Management * Ostracism * Work Place Issues & Transitioning in the Workplace * Coping Skills * Mood Swings * Adjusting to New Identity * Advocacy * Psychoeducation * Family Stress & Coping *
I'm highly trained, educated, and culturally competent. I'm specialized in working with the trans community. As a member of WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health), I follow the Standards of Care to ensure the safety of my clients, but I do not play the role of "gatekeeper".
I have worked with mental health translators in 13 different languages, to include: Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, Laotian, Hmong, Thai, Vietnamese, Korean, Cambodian (Khmer), Samoan, Filipino (Tagalog), French, and Spanish. The majority of my experience has been in the Long Beach, CA Cambodian community with victims of the Khmer Rouge.
