Hi! I'm Sky and I'm a transgender woman. Although I’ve seen a handful of therapists, none were transgender themselves. There's so many questions I wish I felt comfortable asking because there's so much I wish I knew. Now, I hope to be the transgender therapist that I once needed. A therapist that's judgment-free, personalized, knowledgeable, and in the community herself. Still, although I know a lot, I realize that there's even more that I don't know. I strive to always keep an open mind, learn new ideas from everyone, and continue my own personal journey of growth.
Research has shown that people benefit best from therapists who share their identities. Unfortunately, there's a dire deficit of trans therapists. I hope to help fill this deficit. In addition to being trans-affirming, I’m kink-friendly and open to working with anyone of any age who are or think they might be anywhere along the LGBT+ rainbow. I hope to help people with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, stress, trauma, substance abuse, and other challenges. If you think I sound like a good fit for you, please email me at email@example.com.
Recently, I finished my MSW in Mental Health and Substance Abuse at the University of Michigan. While there, I conducted research in a clinical psychology lab that focused on borderline personality disorder in the LGBT+ population. Now, in addition to working as a psychotherapist, I am working as a transgender research technician at Columbia University. These two positions enable me to be a research-informed clinician and a clinically-informed researcher. When I'm not researching or psychologizing mental health, I'm working on my own by getting outside, exercising, longboarding, or making music (piano and percussion).
