Proudly Serving the LGBTQ+ Community
in St. Petersburg and Tampa (and beyond!)


Are you seeking a warm and experienced LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist?
Do you live in St. Petersburg, Florida or the Tampa Bay area?

-OR-

Do you live outside of the Tampa Bay area but still reside in Florida
and need to find an LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist

who provides online distance counseling?

If you answered yes to either of the above:

Welcome!

You have come to the right place, and I am so glad you are here!

Whether you are looking for:

individual therapy
couples counseling (including for poly/CNM relationships)
gender affirming HRT &/or surgery assessments and referrals

...but want to make sure your therapist embraces all types of:


couples
relationships
sexual orientations
and gender identities

I am here specifically for you.

If you are:


lesbian
gay
bisexual
transgender
queer
questioning
intersex
asexual
pansexual

and need counseling to help manage:

anxiety
depression
trauma
stress
communication issues
and/or
recurring relationship problems

...I am here to help!
 
If you are:

transgender
gender non-conforming
gender diverse
genderqueer
genderfluid
non-binary
bigender
agender

you may be looking for a gender therapist or gender specialist.

But that doesn't mean I'm going to "evaluate" your gender. (How ridiculous would that be?)

I'm here to support you and help you feel more affirmed in being who you already know you are.
And if you aren't quite sure who you are or how you identify yet, that's okay (and totally normal) too!

Initial phone consults are always free.
If you think I'd be a good fit as your therapist, we can schedule your first counseling session!
Reach out to me anytime, and I will get back to you ASAP.


I offer individual, couples, and group therapy at the Metta Center at:
4554 Central Avenue
St. Petersburg, Florida 33711

I also offer online counseling to LGBTQ+ clients anywhere in Florida
using a secure video platform,
which does not require you to register or provide ANY personal information.

Check out the rest of my website to learn more about me and to find answers to frequently asked questions.
Thanks for visiting, and I hope to be hearing from you soon!
