Well hello there , my name is Lavoyche and I am a licensed master social worker. We all have experienced trauma in some form of fashion which can render us hopeless and helpless. You may experience depression, anxiety, self harm, suicidal ideations that overwhelm your life. We often become prisoners in our own prison unable to realize that we hold the keys to release us from that prison. I will help you identify tools to move forward from your past trauma and how to take back your life and live freely .

I want to make sure that the client and I are a fit when it comes to rapport. That looks like feeling comfortable sharing content that might cause uncomfortableness due to fearing judgment. If established in the first meeting, I feel confident in working with those with anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, self-harming behaviors, family conflicts, grief, and performance issues in school, sports, or career (to name a few). I believe the treatment models that I use can build their resilience to deal with past, current, and future challenges.

If you struggle with anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria, feelings of inadequacy, the need to “perform” (whether socially, academically, professionally or within intimate relationships), mistrust of others, suicidal ideation and/or the pain of unresolved traumas, including identity rejection trauma, I can help.
I help individuals within & allies of the LGBTQIA+ community get unstuck. Most of my clients have struggled for a long time before seeking therapy. The struggle to lesson anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria and/or the pain of past traumas, including identity rejection trauma, has led many of my clients to self-sooth through a variety of ways including eating, smoking, drinking, gaming, & toxic relationships. They want more than anything to just be happy in life. Our journey together is about healing past wounds & shedding the negative beliefs that are keeping you stuck & away from the joy that is your innate right to experience.

It takes a tremendous amount of courage to reach out for help. Many of us have learned that asking for help isn't safe yet reality tells us that genuine connection to others is as important as the oxygen you breathe. The truth is that you don't have to work through your painful losses, fears or heartaches alone. Everything that you experience has its reasons for existing and the good news is that your mind has a limitless capacity to learn, grow and heal. You deserve to make sense of your challenges even if the process is difficult. I can help guide you on your path to healing and understanding.

Suicidal Ideation Therapists

How does therapy for suicidal ideation work?

Stress, depression, anxiety, or upsetting circumstances can give rise to suicidal thinking. Therapy can address the events at the core of an individual’s suffering. Understanding why a person may be suicidal can help the therapist and the patient discover alternative methods of coping. A person with suicidal ideation may be mired in catastrophic thinking, and treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy is a good choice for breaking such patterns. In addition, treatment such as acceptance and commitment therapy can help a person manage their distress through better emotion regulation.

Which therapies are best for suicidal ideation?

Specific approaches used by professionals include cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, psychodynamic, acceptance and commitment therapies, among others. Cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies are two widely used therapies that can help individuals with painful thoughts and past traumas. These therapies help an individual tolerate distress, regulate emotions, and not act on dangerous urges.

Are there specific medications to be combined with therapy?

The use of medication for suicidal thoughts must be aligned with the underlying cause; conditions such as depression, anxiety, and psychosis may be at the root of suicidal ideation. A psychiatrist may prescribe medications for symptoms, which may include antipsychotics such as aripiprazole or antidepressants such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.

How often and how long are therapy sessions for suicidal ideation?

As with any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual. Patients may see improvement within 15 to 20 sessions, at an average of 50 minutes per session, while others may opt for 20 to 30 sessions over, perhaps, a six-month period. Still other patients, especially those with co-occurring conditions like major depression and anxiety, may need to continue sessions for up to 12 to 18 months. In some cases, residential treatment may be recommended for an individual who is judged to be at high risk of self-harm.
