Individual and Couples Therapy

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 and couples sessions to adults 18 and older, and I specialize in work with LGBTQ+ and neurodivergent clients. I also offer EMDR therapy, and 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 EMDR, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing, somatic approaches, and narrative therapy.

However, I often find that these approaches as they are originally written are not enough in that they do not consider the wide range of neurodiversity and socioeconomic realities we experience in our world today. As a clinician who deeply desires to invite my clients' fullest selves in the therapy space, I will talk through with you which parts of the above modalities may be useful, and where they will likely fall short in recognizing how your intersecting experiences of race and ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation, dis/ability, economic status, migration, and/or religion also create your reality. If you are someone who is or suspects you are neurodivergent, meaning you are Autistic, have ADHD, and/or otherwise experience your brain as outside of a neurotypical standard, know that the goal of our therapy together will not be to squash your brain into a neurotypical-appearing box, but to nurture your unique cognition and strengthen your relationship with your non-conforming self.

Many of the individuals I see for therapy sessions are exploring different aspects of their identities, processing experiences from the past and understanding how those experiences continue to influence them, or a combination of these efforts and more.

Couples Therapy

In couples and polycules (relationships between more than two people) 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), the Gottman Method, and somatic techniques to structure our work together. 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 in couples and polycules work. 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.
