I can help you move through pain, connect to your authentic self,and live the kind of life you want to live
If you are struggling with issues related to your sexual orientation or gender identity, I can help with related issues, as well as issues that are more universal. My clients include individuals with challenges involving disability (mental or physical), anxiety, grief, trauma, suicidal thoughts and identity issues. I would like use my skills to help you.
As my client, you will benefit from existential therapy focused on finding meaning as well as narrative therapy (focused on reclaiming or owning personal stories) and feminist or queer theories (focused on power, overcoming oppression, and authentic identity).
