"I welcome the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning population. Homosexuality is not a problem that must be cured, but there are challenges unique to people with alternate lifestyles. I can help people come out to loved ones, deal with harassment or merely discuss relationships without having to change the pronoun. I have advocated for transgender clients who have chosen to make transitions, and those who have decided to not make full transitions. I have run a support group for Male to Female (MtF) individuals, using psychodramatic action methods."
