WHAT IS YOUR INVESTMENT IN THE LIFE YOU WANT?
Mental health needs, relationship struggles, and general functioning abound in our marginalized communities! This isn't because we are somehow less intelligent, less capable, or more inclined towards sickness than our majority counterparts, but rather because a great deal of our development and energy has been put towards our survival rather than our thriving. Discrimination and institutional violence have taken it's toll on our minds, bodies, hearts, and spirits. There are times when we need mental health support and times when we need just need a little clarification and guidance to successfully move through our present and into our future. Take the time to take care of yourself. Loving yourself is a gamble with great odds!
Psychotherapy is a modality of healing that offers space for process and healing of past experiences and patterns. You are the foremost expert in your life. My role is to help facilitate the safest journey towards your most authentic and desired self. Psychotherapy is only available for those living in the state of CA but can be done in person or via VSEE (a HIPAA compliant video call application).
Coaching offers guidance, support, information, and tips to help one move forward and achieve their goals. Coaching may help those seeking personal growth, an unbiased sounding board, help with identifying and achieving goals, and help with accountability to themselves as they move towards their individually set goals. Coaching is distinguished from psychotherapy or counseling as it does not involve diagnosis or specific treatment for psychological conditions or crisis intervention.
RELATIONAL THERAPY AND COACHING
Sometimes exploration is an individual process and sometimes it needs to be done in the group or unit where the healing is needed or progress is trying to be made. I have particular knowledge working with parents of children on LGBTQ identity journeys, partnerships where one or both partners are moving through gender transition, non-monogamous couples/families, and kink identified couples.
Consultations are psycho educational in nature and offer general information. I provide consultations to other providers, organizations, and businesses looking to increase their LGBTQ cultural competency. I also work with LGBTQ identified individuals, partners, and families looking for general information about their coming out or self discovery process. This includes individuals needing support around gender exploration, letter writing, and access to medical transition services.
UPDATE January 2018: I am currently at capacity for psychotherapeutic services. However, please feel free to contact me if you would like to be added to my waitlist. I may have immediate availability for packaged life coaching work and/or consultation services.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Please, continue reaching out for support! You deserve it!
