LGBTQ-Affirming Therapy for Individuals and Couples
Are you looking for a safe space to explore your hopes, struggles and desires? Together, we can develop strategies to relieve anxiety and distress, discover more effective coping skills, and empower you to work toward greater satisfaction in your life and relationships.
Often, we encounter situations in our present day lives that feel similar to unresolved incidents from our past. These current situations trigger feelings of fear, apprehension, or even panic, and can lead to distress in the here and now. We learned certain coping skills to survive and tolerate these early unresolved issues-such as shutting down, avoiding discomfort, raging, or striving to please others-but these strategies may no longer serve us.
Trauma informed therapy is grounded in an understanding of the neurological, biological, psychological, and social effects of trauma and the prevalence of these experiences, since many people have experienced some type of trauma in their lives. I believe one of my primary jobs as a therapist is to support you in cultivating a sense of safety, so you can begin to explore and resolve these experiences.
