I’m Antje (she/her), queer-affirming therapist, educator, and consultant.

As a psychotherapist member of the queer community, I tailor my approach to my clients’ unique perspectives, identities, and cultures. I empower clients to be in the driver’s seat of their therapy while I help them navigate the road to greater awareness, growth, and change.

I am deeply passionate about the value of queer-affirming therapy. For this reason, I offer online therapy as an option, in addition to in-person appointments in my San Francisco office.

I believe in the power of education. I have many decades of teaching experience that I obtained during my former career in academic research science and through my involvement in teaching psychoanalytic candidates. I also serve as a supervisor and consultant and contribute to the education of therapists in training.
