About My Clients
You waited years to seek out a therapist. I get it. It can feel incredibly hard to reach out & be vulnerable. You have been carrying around this baggage called Trauma. You want help from a Trans-Affirming Queer therapist. And face it-you needed Caregiver Support yesterday! I work best with clients who can look at the areas where they feel stuck & are willing to be emotionally curious about how they feel. Let's look at how those feelings impact your life. It's time for you to start living!
How I Can Help You
My approach is tailored to you. It's definitely not a one-size fits all. For high-functioning clients with a trauma history, I use EMDR to help you process triggering memories and overwhelming emotions. With transgender clients new in their journey, I help you develop a timeline for coming out & figure out how to deal with the daily microaggressions that hurt to your very core. I also write letters for Gender-Affirming Surgery. Our relationship is a collaborative one. I am probably not a good fit if you are looking to come in every week and just vent. I like to work with you to establish goals, achieve those goals, and ultimately know when you are ready to graduate with a bunch of new tools in your toolbox. Your input is vital to our working relationship. Research shows that the biggest predictor of therapy success is our relationship. We work together to establish a trusting one. Call 603-994-0114 for a free 15-minute consultation to see if we might be a good fit.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe you are stronger than you give yourself credit for and I want to help you uncover your strengths. Self-care is almost a mantra with me. So, what have you done lately? It often comes up as homework assignments! Ah yes, homework. Life is what happens between sessions. We talk about blocks that get in the way of making changes, sometimes even small, incremental changes. I like to assign "experiments" to try for a week to see if changing a behavior has the desired effect. Then we look at how it worked out and if it didn't, how can we tweak it next time? I belong to the LGBTQ+ community, and I am never a gate keeper for transgender clients seeking Gender-Affirming Surgery. You have lived through so much. Isn't it time for you to make an investment in yourself? When I am not working, I spend time volunteering at Grammy Rose, a unique animal rescue dedicated to placing dogs from kill shelters in forever homes. I am in heaven there!
