In therapy sessions with me, you can expect direct communication and feedback, structured sessions, and commitment to our partnership in your treatment. I offer individual sessions to adults 18 and older, and I specialize in work with transgender, gender non-conforming and nonbinary, and LGBQ+ identified clients. I also offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) in partnership with Journey Clinical. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
In individual sessions, we will talk through what approach you are the most interested in, or what has worked best for you in the past, and created a customized plan from there. I draw on a variety of approaches in individual sessions, such as somatic or embodiment work, polyvagal or nervous system approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I find that most people benefit from a variety of approaches in meeting their goals, and often find that different approaches have different roles to play throughout the course of our sessions together. Additionally, most traditional therapy modalities have poor or nonexistent responses to sociopolitical contexts, or the ways our identities, locations, and histories inform our experience, and I strongly encourage you to bring your identity and experience into our sessions together.
Many of the individuals I see for therapy sessions are exploring different aspects of their identities, working through feelings of anxiety or depression, processing experiences from the past and understanding how those experiences continue to influence them, or a combination of these efforts and more.
In couples and polycules sessions, the recipient of our treatment and care is your relationship. We will work together as a team to identify what your relationship needs, and how it can be best supported. In couples and polycules sessions, I use a combination of emotionally-focused therapy (EFT), Gottman, and somatic techniques to structure our work together, and toprovide exercises for you to work through outside of session to keep your practice going. I find that the first several sessions are often exploring what the goals for the relationship are, and that goal-setting in and of itself is a huge part of the therapeutic process. For some people, this phase of our work together can feel slow, but as a clinician experience has shown over and over that contracting on goals from the beginning is a critical piece of groundwork for the rest of our work together.
Many of the couples and polycules I see for therapy sessions are exploring changes over the course of long-term relationships, the beginnings of new chapters, such as co-habitation, and/or issues related to sex and sexuality.
