I also work specifically with the LGBTQ , Kink and trans /NB communities.
Here you are, looking for answers, looking for hope. Self esteem is the container in which we strive to live. Acts of self empowerment are those things we use to build this container. Care, compassion and love support growth and empowerment. Come on in! Let’s talk about building an awesome and vibrant life for you. A safe space to grow in. I work from an interactive and relational standpoint. I don’t just sit there and reflect, nod my head and say ‘tell me more’. Here we explore who you are, who you want to be, who you were, and all the bridges and tunnels between those identities. Let’s examine and build on who you are meant to be.

As a queer - and transgender -identified therapist, I am continually inspired and motivated by the strength and resiliency of the LGBTQ + community and those who support them.
If you are wrestling with topics related to your sexuality, gender identity, relationship dynamics, or religious/spiritual trauma, I would love to support you in finding harmony with who you are and how you relate to the world around you. I view clients as the experts of their own experience and seek to come alongside you as a collaborative partner in better understanding yourself and reaching your goals. I will meet you where you are with an approach that is sex/body/kink/poly-positive, culturally humble, empathetic, and compassionate.

I am LGBTQ +, kink and poly friendly.
Not your daddy’s therapist - $175 per 50min session. If you are looking for a therapist just like every other, then keep looking. I am holistic, young, experimental, polyamorous, extremely open-minded, spiritual, transpersonal, weird, awkward, provocative, quirky, heteroflexible, and a sparkle of queer . My life work focuses on the deconstruction of social norms including gender, masculinity/femininity, relationships, sexuality, professionalism, and mental health as a whole. Therapy is not a one size fits all kind of gig. I customize the way I work to match the needs, strengths, and limitations of each individual client.

Couples/Relationship Counseling. LGBTQ , Poly, & Kink friendly. Clients that like my style seek therapy mostly for anxiety or depression that comes from the feeling that life lacks purpose, feels stuck, or stale; especially during times of heartache, misunderstanding, break-ups, or even death. Many useful moments, crucial moments, can arise at the end of something - unresolved past hurts, spiritual dilemmas, a sudden urgency and passion for figuring out "why we're here" - understanding them and integrating them is what I offer. Closing the old stuff up well means new, exciting beginnings are possible...often in the same relationship!

I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, and members of the LGBTQ population to help you on your path toward living a happier, more satisfying life. In over nineteen years of experience as a therapist I have successfully helped people cope with anxiety, depression, addiction, co-dependency, foster care, adoption, grief and loss, phase-of-life changes, and issues related to spirituality. I am sensitive to the ways cultural factors - ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status - affect our emotional and mental well-being, an awareness that is strongly incorporated into my work.

Has your life suffered because of trauma you have experienced? I work with individuals, couples, and families to overcome their challenges related to abuse and trauma as well as anxiety, depression, and interpersonal issues. I have worked with survivors of sexual trauma and domestic violence, the LGBT community and unique concerns within that community, and individuals who struggle with co-occurring mental illness and substance use. I'm also familiar with the struggles you may have in managing a chronic illness, such as ehlers danlos syndrome. I value the importance of creating a safe, non-judgmental space to work on yourself.

How many times have you said “If I could just get past this one issue in my life, things will start to get better” and then before you know it you are right back in the same place all over again? It seems like no matter how hard you try, things never seem to improve in your life and you can’t quite understand why. Being human, we all wind up feeling stuck at one point or another in our lives. So the question is what do I have to do differently in order to manifest the life I always longed to live? Perhaps the answer lies within yourself and you just need to believe in yourself enough to discover who you really are.

#1 You are courageous. It is not easy to ask for help or be willing to look at coping strategies or attachment styles that are no longer serving you. I strive to provide an open unbiased environment to develop a comfortable therapist/client dynamic in order to begin processing past or current issues with a focus on goal setting and starting where you're at. Change happens when you believe it can happen and the only failure is in not trying. I strongly believe that there is no destination, only the journey and in focusing on the process and being mindful, you can achieve anything.

I try to create a light-hearted and non-judgemental environment that allows individuals to build confidence and autonomy while gaining back control over mental health struggles. It's important to me that people feel supported as they navigate a journey of personal growth. Oftentimes, people are nervous to share thoughts or worries they have had for years without talking to someone about it. I challenge people to take the risk to open up and work to solve difficulties that have come up, to make enjoying life just a little bit easier.

If you are seeking therapy, you've most likely identified patterns in your life that you'd like to change. Do you feel overwhelmed by what seems too large of a mountain to scale? Have you attempted to do the work alone, but often feel hopeless in your pursuit of stability? You may find it comforting to secure a knowledgeable supportive passenger in your journey to reach the destination of growth and healing. The path to this recognition is unique to each person, as is the process of therapy itself.

My therapy style usually works within a person-centered, relational and cognitive-behavioral framework. I am going to ask about you, your goals, your family/relationships, your history, and other important life experiences and events so that we can begin to identify and understand thinking, feeling, and behavioral patterns that may or may not be working for you. Together, we can work to decrease your symptoms, such as anxiety and depression through building a therapeutic relationship, and increasing self-awareness and coping skills, which can help improve your self-esteem, personal relationships, and overall satisfaction with life!

What type of Concord mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Concord?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
