We all just want to be happy, but what that means is different for every person. If you’re LGBTQ+ and don’t have the support you need from people in your home, work, or school environment, it may be more challenging to live your happiest self. Especially since the pandemic, we may feel even more isolated and in need of support. Coming from a social justice framework, I use a blend of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, and mindfulness based therapy, to help my clients build coping skills, greater trust in their innate healing abilities, and finding their inner truth.
My expertise is in working with members of the LGBTQ+ community, in particular transgender and nonbinary individuals. I have 15 years of experience and expertise supporting LGBTQ+ individuals to live the lives that they know are right for them.
Deciding to come to therapy is a big decision. You need to know your counselor is a safe person who you can trust and who won’t judge you. This may be especially true for people who, like me, are in the LGBTQ+ community. If you’re considering me as your counselor, email or set up a phone call with me to see how comfortable you may feel working with me.
