Emotion-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Having a therapist who is open, nonjudgmental, and understands the wide expression of sexuality, gender, and relationship identities is essential to being vulnerable in the therapy room. Sometimes, these identities are the central focus of what you’d like to work on in therapy, and you need someone who can understand your experience without making assumptions, asking inappropriate questions or giving irrelevant feedback. Other times, you don’t necessarily want to work on your identities in therapy, but it still feels super important to know that your therapist is competent, sensitive, and knowledgeable about issues you may face.
My office is located in a safe, supportive clinic with other LGBTQ-affirming providers who share the same values and beliefs about providing culturally competent services.
