At times, life can feel overwhelming, confusing, or intolerable. Individual therapy can be useful to address mental health concerns like depression or anxiety, learn skills to cope with stress more effectively, develop self-insight, and better understand interpersonal relationships.
LGBTQ people often face marginalization and discrimination, even from mental healthcare providers. Having an LGBTQ affirming therapist can help you feel safe and supported in a non-judgmental space. I have both training and lived experience to support you in navigating experiences related to oppression, queer relationships, and coming out. I can also help support and affirm you as you question your gender identity or sexual orientation.
When we struggle with anxiety, depression, or a myriad of other issues, we often engage in strategies to control our emotional experiences, which can make the situation worse rather than better. Instead I will teach you techniques from Acceptance & Commitment Therapy to help you accept and pivot away from your discomfort, so you can reconnect to what matters most. In addition, I integrate techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing into sessions.
