Anxiety and Depression
When it comes to anxiety and/or depression
I strive to help you balance these daily stressors. Having a safe space to process thoughts and feeling and events can be very helpful in the quest to find the skills to manage the ups and downs.
I support your choice on whether or not to use medication as a tool. As an LMFT I cannot prescribe medication, but I am happy to consult with your medical care team.
Sexual Identity & Diversity
As a certified sex educator my passion is creating a safe space for all sexualities and sexual lifestyles. I work with people from a variey of communitites, including but not limited to LGBTQIIA populations, the leather/kink/BDSM scene, sex workers, non-monogomous and gender expansive folks.
Assigned & Chosen Families
I offer a space for nuclear, blended families, chosen family, as well as families who are divorced/separated. I recognize that many people are involved with different types of families, be it leather family, queer/drag houses, or sex worker families. I offer a space for families no matter how defined.
Gender Journey/ Exploration
I believe that everyone’s gender identity is different. I work with clients to explore the spectrum of identities that present in the world and in different cultures. With clients who want to do gender exploration, sometimes there is a goal in sight (hormones, surgery) or the journey is the goal.
I offer assessment letters for gender related surgeries and can help guide you towards gender goals and supporting you through navigating systems. I work with other health providers to help you on your way and provide support.
I also work with partners and family members of folks who are on their own gender journey.
Body stuff can be hard, and can affect our lives in different ways. As a therapist we can work together to tackle these issues, change behaviors, and work towards a more healthy sense of yourself. Body-positivity and gaining self-acceptance are a big part of my practice and I strongly believe in supporting you where you are at.
Relationship Work (Including Multi-Partner Relationships)
I offer relationship sessions for couples of all sexual backgrounds and multi-partner relationships. Together we work to increase communication skills and to have a safe space to process issues. I also work with relationships that are coming to an end, and work with you to honor the relationship you had and end in an amicable way.
