People often think about therapy for a long time before making the important decision to learn how to cope better or heal from past events. It is a big step and it is work for you, too. Once people start therapy, they often wonder why they didn’t pursue a little help much sooner. There is often a sense of relief in making the decision to do something to help yourself. Sometimes you’ve lost hope that things can improve. I can help you recover that hope and see positive change. “Everyday do something that will inch you closer to a better tomorrow.” -Doug Firebaugh
Let's get started
In this time of social distancing due to COVID19, you might prefer to have a virtual appointment instead of coming in to the office for a session. If so, I can help you through virtual therapy, or telehealth. Telehealth is psychotherapy provided to clients via secure live video conferencing. This can be done with a smartphone or a computer. It is important to have a quiet space where others won’t overhear you and you’ll be free from interruptions or distractions during your telehealth session. It’s best to have a strong internet connection and have few other programs, apps, etc running while video conferencing. A well-charged battery (or plugged in to power) and headphones or ear buds are helpful, too. If you’d like to access telehealth services, please state that’s the type of appointment you want when you contact the office to schedule.
Stigma-free, affirming, affordable therapy for LGBTQIA+ Individuals.
Do you live outside of the heteronormative-cisgender box? Have you been to other supposed “LGBTQ-friendly” counselors who had no idea what you were talking about? Could you use a safe space to process your feelings and assess your goals? If you can relate to any of the above, then you’ve come to the right place. No judgments. No…
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a form of treatment that helps people see the connections between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, and free them from unhelpful patterns of behavior. CBT is grounded in the belief that it is a person’s perception of events – rather than the events themselves – that determines how they will feel and act in response. CBT can help with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, anger issues, Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and many other difficulties.
