Practice Info
I have been a licensed marriage and family therapist in Los Angeles, CA for 24 years. My office is located in West Los Angeles and my office is comfortable, animal friendly and located near the 405 and 10 Freeways. I received my license in 1991 and my background is working with foster children. I started up several programs and found the work rewarding and difficult. Being a foster parent is a hard job because it was always the goal to reunify the child with their parents if at all possible. I started working with transgender people almost 20 years ago and have helped so many people transition to become themselves. I was an active member of the Los Angeles Gender Center for many years before going out on my own with a psychiatrist to start my own company called, Gender Wellness of Los Angeles that has been in practice for over 13 years. I have loved my work in the transgender community and am an active member of World Professional Association of Transgender Health. As an organization we were instrumental in getting Gender Identity Disorder removed from the DSM-IV and replaced it with Gender Dysphoria. It is no longer a mental disorder and is now considered a medical condition. As a member of this organization, I am active in working with policy and procedures for the transgender community and helping them get access to the best doctors, mental health providers and all other resources necessary for a happy and successful transition.

My company is called Gender Wellness of Los Angeles and we are able to provide the necessary letters needed for hormones and sex confirming surgeries to the female to male and male to female transgender person. We provide individual, family and couples counseling as well as referrals to a psychiatrist for psychotropic medications if needed.

Additionally, I work with the gay/lesbian population as well as anyone seeking therapy who wants to change behaviors that are no longer working for them in their lives. I use a direct approach and believe that the client and myself are a team working together to improve relationships to friends, family, co-workers and loved ones.
Bio
I was born and raised in Southern California. I received my bachelor's degree from The University of California at Santa Barbara in Film Studies and my master's degree from The California Family Study Center in Encino which is now called Phillips Graduate Institute. I have been licensed for 24 years and love working with families as well as couples and individuals.

I have been adjunct faculty at both Antioch University and Phillips Graduate Institute. I also do speaking engagements at UCLA, Wildwood School and other schools. Additionally, I have appeared on several television shows including The New Ricki Lake Show, The Tyra Banks Show, The Other Half and Fox News. I have appeared in Glamour Magazine and love educating people on transgender issues. It is my life's mission to normalize transgender.

I have also worked for many years in the foster care system as well as in hospital settings and other child care agencies such as Vista Del Mar, Los Angeles Child Guidance Center, Aviva Center, GLASS Foster Family Agency, Harborview Adolescent Center and drug and alcohol programs.

My background is in the entertainment business and I enjoy working with actors, producers, directors, agents and their spouses.
