Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Issues

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) persons benefit greatly from a supportive and non-judgmental place to explore their identities and needs without fear or embarrassment. I am active in the LGBT community and always maintain an inclusive and understanding point of view.

Family and friends are often confused about how to best help a someone struggling with these issues. Joint sessions or consultations can reduce anxiety and help others understand the complex factors involved with gender identity and sexual orientation.

 

Alcohol and Drug Use Concerns

As a Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC), I have training and experience that will help you and your family understand how best to deal with alcohol and drug use. The cornerstone of my approach is maintaining a respectful attitude while giving as much information and feedback as possible. Since I firmly believe that everyone is unique, a thorough assessment is the first place to start. The level of use that is acceptable for one person may cause great harm to another. I can help individuals determine if their use is harmful to their well-being, and consider the options for changing or stopping any abuse.
