There are many reasons we seek therapy.
We might find ourselves in the same destructive cycles day after day or feel trapped in our own lives. We might find ourselves unable to stop thinking about traumatic memories or find ourselves acting out our trauma over and over. We might feel out of place in our own bodies, knowing something is not aligning with our gender, sex, or sexual orientation, but not sure where to start. Or we just may be wanting to find our greatest potential and change our behavior patterns for success.
I can help.
We can work together to see your life a little differently and start to make change.
Meeting in a compassionate and confidential environment, we can work to improve communication, identify destructive patterns, and change them. We can review relationships in your life and better navigate them to have your needs heard. I am here to listen and provide support in your journey as a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Working as equals, we can begin the process to rewrite the narrative of trauma, utilizing techniques like EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing), among other evidenced based approaches.
If you are ready to make a change, you are in the right place.
