Charles Strauss, MSW, LICSW

respect  *  resilience  *  authenticity  *  connection  *  voice


I have a collaborative style and use a combination of techniques, including narrative, psychodynamic, family systems, and play therapy.

I am a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health and was awarded the Bisexual Resource Center’s Unsung Hero Award.  I take a nuanced, whole-person approach to gender and sexuality.

Not all clients will want to address any particular issue in therapy. Nevertheless, everyone deserves a therapist who has respect and reverence for the whole client.
