I specialize in working with higher functioning creatives, artists, and LGBTQ+ folx who are ready to go further and deeper on their journey of self-development, awareness, and personal integration. I want to help you rediscover the most authentic and healthy version of you, communicate like a boss, and express yourself freely and openly, so that you can kick ass in your awesome life.
On the surface it probably looks like you have it mostly together, but inside you might be feeling anxious and overwhelmed, unmotivated, or depressed. You are fed up with not feeling inspired or fulfilled, and want to have healthier relationships, but it seems like you keep running into the same frustrating issues over and over again. You want to heal old pain that is holding you back, and change relationship patterns with yourself and others that haven’t been working. We will collaborate to explore the unconscious forces at play that are effecting you in the present moment, and address matters of the mind, body, and soul.
Eclectic Depth Therapy
As your therapist, my goal is to keep it real with you, and help you bring to light those sneaky unconscious parts of the self that have been hiding in the shadows, getting in the way of you being the authentic badass you know you are. This involves a process of gaining awareness of your programming from early childhood experiences, processing and healing traumas or old emotional wounds that are keeping you stuck, and developing a deeper understanding of yourself, why you are the way you are, and why that person is pretty damn cool!
The way therapy plays out in the room will be tailored to you and your unique needs. As we get to know each other, we will work together to identify the ways in which your old and family and relational dynamics may be affecting you now, while also learning how to cope in the present moment in healthier ways, incorporating mindfulness tools, integrating spirituality (if appropriate and relevant for you), and having some laughs along the way. I am an LGBTQIA affirmative and inclusive therapist. I take into account your personal world view, including but not limited to your culture, race/ethnicity, sexuality & gender expression, and spirituality/religion (or lack thereof). I’m a firm believer that expressing yourself fully through humor, laughter, and cursing, (if that’s your thing), as well as through tears and serious moments, is healthy and crucial to healing. Therapy is a place for you to take time for yourself, whether that means it’s time to be serious and process and cry, or its time for you to share what’s going on in your life and crack some jokes and and drop some f-bombs. It’s YOUR time.
