I met Barbara Rubin nearly 10 years ago in Santa Fe at a workshop that emphasized being your authentic self. Over the course of that weekend and knowing her intimately ever since, I can tell you she brings her entire self to her clients. Dr. Rubin provides a safe place for her clients to explore, navigate and heal their inner (and, ultimately, their outer) worlds. Her longstanding work with the trans community, coupled with her commitment to continued education, is sincere, nuanced and effective. Whether she’s facilitating a workshop or attending one for her own emotional and spiritual nourishment, Dr. Rubin is a top-notch, committed professional who leads with her strongest asset: Character.
