New York Psychotherapy
Gender, Relationships, Sexuality
Do you have trouble asserting your own wishes and needs? Do you tend to not give them priority? I help people feel more comfortable with their own agenda, deal with difficult individuals and change entrenched roles in relationships.

I also help people cope with difficult life transitions such as coming out or transitioning. I have worked with transgendered individuals for several years, helping them to transition to the desired level of their chosen gender.
