RE: Therapists comfortable with alternative lifestyles

Hi I'd like to recommend Laine Demetria, MS, MFT Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Although she specializes in medical trauma, she embraces families, couples and individuals with alternative lifestyles. I love the way she deeply listens and addresses the issues at hand but always sees you as whole and perfect. She is bright, grounded, empathetic and spiritual. You can call her to see if she is a good match to you. 415.705.0776 hope this helps
