Hi! I'm Carol.
I currently run two separate private practices: one is located in Northwest Fresno, California, on the "Fig Garden Loop" and the other is located in Long Beach, CA. My physical Fresno office will be closing May 25, 2018, but I will still provide videotherapy (aka: telemedicine) to established clients, as well as for new clients who are able to meet with me for an in-person session prior to starting videotherapy (whether they come to my Long Beach office or if they are able to see me when I am in up in Fresno each month). My office hours in Long Beach will be by appointment only.
I am a WPATH (World Professional Association for Transgender Health) psychotherapist specializing in working with individuals ages 14 and over who may be dealing with the following issues:
- Transitioning Transgender or Gender Diverse Individuals (& their support network/family)
- Gender Dysphoria
- Gender Identity
- Coming Out
- Workplace Issues (Related to Transition)
- School & Peer-Related Problems (Related to Gender & Sexual Orientation Issues)
- Adjusting to New Roles & Identities
- Family Stress & Coping (in Relation to Transitioning...)
Although I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, I do not offer couples therapy/marriage counseling, unless it pertains directly to a transgender client and his/her/their transition, nor do I work with children under the age of 14.
I have transgender group therapy available, as well. Please visit my GROUPS page for a list of current groups offered. These are subject to change. If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to contact me.
