M. David Soliven, LCSW, CASAC, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
Do you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or gender non-conforming? Are you an ally, family member or partner? If you are struggling with feelings of shame, anger, anxiety and depression and want to achieve purpose, connection and change in your life, then you need not look any further. I will work with you to explore and resolve your main concerns by guiding you through uncomfortable feelings and developing your skills in resiliency and self-awareness. I believe that each session presents an opportunity to build strength and self-compassion while in an environment that promotes support and care.
I have over 10 years of combined experience in counseling adults who have concerns related to transgender and gender identity issues, family, relationships, sex, sexual orientation, HIV/AIDS, school, employment, and addiction and recovery. My work style is eclectic, and I tailor my approach according to an individual's needs.
I also have been invited many times by community based organizations and social service agencies to train their staff in the provision of culturally competent services to clients who identify as transgender and gender non-conforming. If your organization might benefit from a training, then please contact me.
