I support clients through exploring + processing gender, sexuality, identity issues, and sexual trauma.
Therapist in Houston, TX
PTSD may manifest from any number of experiences over your lifetime, including sexual assault, childhood abuse, domestic violence, sex trafficking, natural disaster, witnessing violence, sudden medical diagnoses, or the unexpected death of someone close to you. No matter when the traumatic event(s) happened, it may impair your ability to live, work, or just "feel normal." Trauma-focused therapy can help you process and move through the past so you can live in the present.
As a queer person, I have both personal and professional experience with the LGBTQ+ community and understand some of the unique issues we face. Family and cultural expectations, stigma, judgment, and lack of safety can have negative effects on our relationships and sense of self. Whether you're figuring out your sexuality or came out years ago, I'm here to provide a safe, confidential place where you can be yourself.
