Embracing Gender Diversity

As a clinical psychologist I specialize in gender identity and sexuality issues. I'm an organizational executive consultant, providing clinical services as well as media consultation.


I consult with transgender and gender nonconforming children, adolescents, their families and other healthcare professionals. Currently I support the training of healthcare professionals, students and fellows in the rapidly advancing field of transgender healthcare.


My special areas of interest include sexuality,

gender issues, and healing trauma.

Transgender Specialist

It is a great blessing to be here for you!


It doesn't take the wildest imagination to understand the struggles I've endured along the way to become Erica.
The greatest blessing is to be able to share with you in my professional quadrant, not only the hardscape of my experience but the beauty of love and how it reveals itself in the dire need for humanity in all of us.

A Conversation with Jesse Singal
In a bonus interview episode, Jesse interviews Dr. Erica Anderson, a trans woman and Bay-Area-based gender clinician with years of experience working with transgender and gender nonconforming youth. The two discuss the white-hot debate over trans kids, including what comprehensive, compassionate assessment looks like in this field, how clinicians decide when a young person is ready for puberty blockers and/or hormones, and the controversial concept of “rapid-onset gender dysphoria.”
