About My Clients
My clients are members of the LGBTQIA2S community (or their families or allies) recovering from religious trauma and/or other oppressive systems. I come alongside folx of all backgrounds, genders and worldviews and help them reconnect with their own strengths and values. My clients want to live authentically and in peace, congruent to their whole selves. My clients are ready to Get Real.
My Background and Approach
My foundation for therapy is person-centered (Rogerian) and Narrative (recognizing and changing unhelpful stories about ourselves). I also utilize CBT and DBT, which I weave in at a pace that feels right for my client and their path. My priority is helping you feel seen, understood and heard and then giving you tools to manage the depression, anxiety, trauma or addiction (or all of the above) that are bringing you to therapy. All journeys are different, but I notice most clients begin to notice some relief after 1-2 sessions and real change after several. I offer flexible hours with weekend and evening availability.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe you are the expert on your life, your family, your community and, most importantly, your story. When people tell me who they are, how they feel and what they have experienced, I believe them. I cannot tell you how to feel, but I can help you safely manage your feelings. I will listen, support and come alongside you while we uncover your strengths and values and help you start living in alignment with your real purpose. My personal experience involves leaving religion during my 30s, (finally) being diagnosed with ADHD, embracing my own gender fluidity and uncovering my core values. My passion is helping others connect with their own values as well, and embracing the life they were meant to live. Find out more about me over at tiktok.com/@letsgetreal_lpc
