What else do you want potential patients to know about you or your clinic?
I believe that both gender and sexuality exist on a spectrum, and there is no "wrong" way to identify oneself. I believe in providing compassionate support to every client, no matter how they identify, and whether their challenges are identity-related or simply the same life challenges we all experience. I try to meet every client exactly where they are and work with them to find the best way to navigate whatever they are experiencing. I also have space available for sliding scale clients.
