Whether you struggle with anxiety, OCD, mood difficulties, tics, relationship troubles or other difficulties, you will feel safe, supported, and seen as you process your thoughts and feelings, develop new insight, and learn new skills to overcome your difficulties.

We all deserve a life of contentment, strong attachments and personal satisfaction. Therapy can help us achieve these goals. The heart of my approach is collaboration; I may be an expert in what I do, but you are the expert in you. Together, we discover what is and is not going well, figure out the reasons why, then find ways to make life as good as it can be.

Do you feel overwhelmed by painful thoughts and feelings? That if only you weren't so_______(sad, anxious, depressed, shy, angry) that your life would be better? Many people try to get rid of painful thoughts, feelings, and physical symptoms. In fact, they work really hard to feel better, and yet.... they don't feel better. It is not for lack of trying that people decide to seek professional help. Our minds are designed to ruminate about problems until these problems are "fixed". That's why your mind is working so hard right now.

Do you find it hard to enjoy what you have today, but feel stuck in the past, or keep worrying about the future? Do you struggle to communicate your feelings effectively to others? When we don't learn to successfully deal with our thoughts and emotions, when past wounds are left unattended, they intensify, and get expressed in unproductive, angry, or hurtful ways towards yourself and the people you love.

Imagine your life free from co-dependency, substance abuse, anxiety, anger, gambling, sex, and family issues. What if you were finally in control? If you're thinking 'hell yes' I'm ready, then I'm honored and happy to help. And no, I'm not going to push you towards AA or rehab :) - it's not the best option for everyone. Instead, let's start with a free 15-minute conversation to figure out exactly what you need from there.

If you can answer yes to any of the following questions, I empathize with your pain and struggle and am ready and willing to help. Are you struggling to navigate a current situation or relationship-dynamic? Are you starting to realize that your usual ways of coping are no longer working for you? Do you want to see and feel progress but don't know where to start? Is your inner-dialogue filled with shame, criticism and unhelpful ways of thinking?

Change starts with the relationship that we form in the therapy and then continues by building useful skills in and outside of our sessions. In practice this means that I fit best with clients who are interested in (1) understanding more about their thoughts and emotions while also (2) taking clear steps to improve their mental and physical well-being. My job as the therapist is to provide a warm and caring environment to support the client in this process.

LGBTQ+ Counsellors

Do LGBTQ-affirmative therapists receive special training?

Yes. Many therapists who practice LGBTQ-affirmative therapy have completed specialised training, either during their degree programme or as continuing education, to learn the core principles of affirmative therapy and how to best support their LGBTQ clients; some have received certifications in LGBTQ-affirmative therapy. Prospective clients should inquire as to a clinician’s background and training to ensure a good fit.

Why might I want to see an LGBTQ-affirming or LGBTQ-friendly therapist?

Queer and gender-non-conforming individuals frequently experience bias and marginalisation in day-to-day life. Working with a therapist who understands these unique challenges, as well as accepts and affirms their identity, can help LGBTQ clients feel safe and supported during therapy—allowing them to better navigate their relationships, mental health, and anything else that they wish to explore during therapy. It is important to note that many therapists can be effective in their work with LGBTQ+ individuals, even in the absence of specific training or background knowledge. The most important component in therapy is the alliance between therapist and client, and this alliance can exist between individuals with very different backgrounds.

How can I find an LGBTQ-friendly therapist?

You may wish to inquire about a therapist’s expertise with your specific challenges or concerns—depression, for example, or relationship strife—as well as their past experiences treating LGBTQ+ clients. Prospective clients may also ask whether a therapist has obtained additional training and/or certification in LGBTQ-affirmative techniques.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience with LGBTQ issues?

Prospective clients should feel empowered to directly ask therapists whether they have received training or been certified in LGBTQ-affirming therapy; competent therapists will be happy to explain their educational background and preferred approach(es) to help a client find the best match for them. Clients may also wish to ask how a therapist has treated clients with their particular challenges in the past and what they expect treatment to look like.

Are all the therapists listed in the LGBTQ directory themselves members of the LGBTQ community?

While therapists may choose to disclose their sexual orientation or gender identity in their profiles, the LGBTQ directory features not only those who have shared this information but also those who assert specialised training or experience in providing support to queer individuals, couples or families.
