Individual wellness is connected to community wellness. As a community, I believe that more connections better us all, and that developing a treatment team leads to stronger recovery than reliance on one provider.
Here is a list of local (to the Greater Rochester Area) and national practitioners and resources which I recommend and/or collaborate with.
I completed my psychotherapy internship with Gem as my supervisor at Tree of Hope Counseling. She is a WPATH provider who offers gender affirming DBT groups for teens, a support group for parents of gender expansive teens, and individual sessions. Together, we offer Gender Dysphoria CEU trainings for clinicians and service providers. In 2024, we'll be offering a Gender Affirming Professional Developmental Consult Group and partnering with Jackson Morrison, LCSW to offer Safe Zone Trainings for clinicians.
Randhir Teja Singh (Christopher Pedrone) and I have collaborated since 2020 in offering mind-body practices that are gentle, accessible and trauma-informed. He offers Kundalini Yoga and Sound Journey's for individuals and groups. He also offers corporate retreats.
Sue Spencer (she/her) is a masterful therapeutic music facilitator of group and individual sessions focusing on attunement to self and community-building. She has experience working with children and adults of all ages in schools, corporate settings and small businesses. Sue and I have been collaborating since 2019. She is currently developing a music therapy group for autistic children.
