(Him/his) BA, MA, RP (Qualifying)
Seeking and starting psychotherapy can be intimidating, especially if you're part of a community that has been historically over-diagnosed or if you are worried about being judged. I am familiar with this experience and understand the reservations that come with trusting a professional with personal stories, thoughts, and emotions.
I believe that the bedrock of effective psychotherapy is rooted in the relationship we cultivate. Getting to know the real you is important to me! As such, I pay close attention to your needs and goals, your values, your identity, and your comfort level. Life problems and intense emotions are valid and worthy of compassionate exploration.
I am drawn to positive approaches that help you safely express yourself and your problems, and that lay the groundwork for sustainable and meaningful change. We will focus on what works, re-work or rearticulate what doesn't, and weave together new ways of thinking and being that are in line with your authentic self.
I help with 2SLGBTQ+ identity formation and coming out, self-love and confidence, relationship therapy for folks in non-monogamous or polyamourous relationships, life transitions, work and school stress, motivation, and negative experiences with religion.
My practice is always grounded in anti-oppression, is queer affirming, and welcomes everyone. If you're interested in discussing your needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or click the book now button on the left.
