I take great pride in promoting the healing journey of my clients: partners (married/dating/poly + BDSM/ kink friendly), individuals (I am anti-racist + LGBTQI+ ally), and families/friends/groups/co-workers. I collaborate with clients of all backgrounds and lifestyles in both English and Spanish. Having grown up in Argentina and worked in higher education and the entertainment industry, I am sensitive to the overwhelming impact that adverse life experiences, toxic environments, lack of appreciation/support, and daily stress can have on an individual's self-worth. (About me: ENFP Myers-Briggs, 2 cats, and influenced by Esther Perel)

I specialize in addiction and sex therapy with a focus on creative individuals. I offer an alternative to traditional addiction treatment programs, focusing on the root causes of addiction, rather than just the substance use. With a judgement-free, collaborative approach to therapy, we will set goals and regain a sense of self and fulfillment. I support everyone’s orientation, gender, kink , and how they choose to identify themselves while helping people allow for different aspects of their sexual selves get what they want out of love, relationships, and sex.

I am passionate about supporting highly sensitive, LGBTQIA+, non-binary, kink /poly/queer folks and community.
Whatever your unique experience is that brought you to seek therapy, I know it has taken multiple attempts and a whole lot of courage. We all desire to be seen and affirmed in our journey to uncover our authentic self(s). It may feel as if there just isn't enough room to allow your whole self to show up, and this creates anxiety and/or depression. Regardless if we are aware of the negative external messages we get, some still seem to find their way into our internal world, and it takes work, support, and self-compassion to confront those messages.

This is a safe space free of judgement and I work with a diverse client base including the LGBTQ+, kink , trans and nonbinary community and people who identify with that experience.
I help my clients with a variety of challenges including stress, fears, overwhelm, and performance issues. Are you struggling with lack of self- confidence or self esteem or feeling stuck? Do you struggle with a body-focused repetitive behavior or want to change a bad habit? I can help. Together we'll figure out where you are stuck and clear out the roadblocks, negative thoughts and limiting beliefs that are holding you back from success, joy and well-being.

I am queer- and trans-affirming, neurodivergent-affirming, kink -affirming, and poly-affirming.
Welcome! I'm Teddy (they/them). I am a queer/trans and neurodivergent therapist. My clients often come to therapy looking for a safe, supportive, and collaborative environment where all of you is seen, heard, respected, and empowered in working towards your goals. I work with my clients to create a space that works for them – it might be focused on specific goals, self-acceptance, and/or identity exploration. While I work with many different populations and concerns, my clients most often identify as queer, trans, and/or neurodivergent. I work with individuals, families, and relationships.

Embodiment,Couples/Relationship Counseling, Teens, Queer Affirming, Sexuality and Gender Exploration, Identity Transitions, Childhood Relational Trauma, Poly, Kink . Life is a wild ride. There are so many conflicting feelings, beliefs and stories that we tell ourselves and that are told to us. Navigating the systems of the external world along with our internal and relational worlds is often overwhelming, exhausting and painful. Relating spaciously and curiously with differing parts of self and excavating old narratives can help in honoring all of who we are and invite permission to create and relate in new ways.

I work best with people who need a space to be heard and want to be empowered in their treatment. If you are noticing patterns and themes in your life and are unsure about why you are unable to do things differently despite wanting to change, exploring your foundational experiences can help to get to the root of the matter. Sometimes coping skills and tools are not enough, and I am here to help. I am LGBTQ affirmative, sex positive , and work through a social justice lens.

I also work with members of the BDSM, kink , and poly communities and create a safe space for the development of new paradigms and beliefs.
Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

I am sex-positive, kink -aware, LGBTQIA+ affirmative, and welcoming to all non-traditional relationships and lifestyles—I consider it an honor to serve my community in this capacity.
Seeking therapy is a brave step. Whether you are presently in crisis or simply feeling a bit stuck in life, I honor the effort & courage that it took you to get here. It suggests that—regardless of how you might feel in this moment—some small (or large) part of you believes in the possibility of a more peaceful, fulfilling life. As a therapist, I am here to not only affirm and amplify that belief, but more importantly, to help you discover and define its reality for yourself.

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. So why therapy now? What are your hopes and dreams for the future? Problems only survive when they are supported by particular beliefs and principles. This can feel like a relentless need to escape a moment that never ends. Exploring the details and effects of these obstacles will help lead to different outcomes not yet discovered.

I am a psychoanalytic therapist who works with repetitive relationship problems, anxiety, panic disorders, long-term depression and men's issues. These often show up as poor self-esteem, feelings of loneliness and disconnection, false-self, obsessions and addictions, and unexplained physical symptoms. Sometimes people feel that something isn't right, but they aren't sure what. When friends, family and self-help aren't enough, I take the time to get to know you and listen for what repeats itself in your thoughts and actions.

All too often struggles deplete our energy and leave us feeling down on ourselves. Through rigorous conversation and a highly supportive relationship, I help people gain the clarity and confidence needed to produce desired change. I have extensive training in postmodern therapies, which examine how dominant cultural discourses can have oppressive effects on our lives, identities, and relationships. Prior to working in private practice, I was part of UCLA's network, where I brought social justice aims to integrative models of mental health. I have many years of experience working with couples, families, youth, and adults.
