Hello and welcome. My name is Preston and I am a queer therapist of color. My first priority as a therapist is always to establish a safe and vibrant relationship with clients, believing deeply that authentic human connection is one of the greatest catalysts for healing and change. I also take a systems approach in the work I do with clients, seeking to understand each individual’s role within larger social and systemic constructs. I bring a social justice lens to working with clients, helping people to understand and heal from the effects of internalized oppression and the ways it impacts one's sense of self and relationships.

Welcome! First and foremost, I believe your pain is real, and that you deserve space to be seen and heard in it. I work with people across many areas, but those who seek me out tend to be queer /LGBTQIAA2+, trans /non-binary/gender non-conforming, chronically or acutely ill, disabled, fat-identified and/or working on an empowered relationship with their body, polyamorous, kinky, sex workers, and non-traditional family structures. I'll be with you every step of the way as you move toward the relief of true self-compassion, as well as the expression of anger, sadness, and grief around what you've lost, or what you never got to have.

My lived experiences of being a queer , non-binary, immigrant, person of color navigating the world and the trauma that comes with that, have led me here. I use a strength-based/anti-oppressive/decolonized approach to build on your own inner strengths, identify and rewire unhelpful beliefs/thoughts, and help you access your strengths and skills to reach your goals. I will support you in recognizing the complicated and complex ways that trauma influences all parts of your life, body, and mind.

In addition to working extensively with anxiety issues, I specialize in helping clients improve their relationships with their partners/spouses. I wholeheartedly welcome both straight and LGBT clients into my practice. I often tell clients that everything makes perfect sense (ie. the problems they share and how they react), and all we need to do is find the right pieces of the puzzle to help them understand. It is from this understanding that relief and solutions arise. By truly understanding what anxiety is an isn't, we learn how to navigate it so it doesn't control our lives.

I specialize in transition to parenthood, pregnancy loss, building family (straight and LGBTQ ), adoption, foster and kinship parenting, perinatal mood disorders, attachment challenges and disruptions, developmental and life transitions, parent child relationships at all ages, children's school problems, behavioral issues, ADHD, depression, and anxiety.
A clinical and developmental psychologist with over 30 years experience, I work with adults, parents and children from birth through adolescence. Development is a continual balance of equilibrium and disequilibrium; a lifelong process as our bodies, brains, relationships and societal expectations change. While the challenges along the way bring the discomfort of vulnerability and negative emotions, they also create opportunity for growth and change. From infancy on, we all have an inner vitality into which therapy can allow us to tap. Therapy provides a safe protected space that nurtures exploration, reflection, growth and change.

I appreciate the opportunity to work with LGBTQIA folks, children of immigrants, folks in tech, and those living with a chronic illness (cancer, lupus, MS).
Therapy is one of few spaces that is dedicated to you and YOUR experiences. It is a non-judgmental space where you can explore issues that have gotten in the way of living with greater ease and comfort. Only you are the keeper of your truth and your story. I can support you in exploring how to hold difficult feelings in more helpful ways whether they be worry, shame, hurt, or pride. What would it be like to increase your emotional buoyancy as you create a path to healing and deeper self-knowledge? What kind of life might that give you?

I embrace working with individuals and partners from traditional, straight, poly, kink and queer lifestyles.
Many of the people who reach out to me for therapy describe themselves as disheartened and distressed with some major part of their lives. Some feel sadly disconnected in their intimate relationship with a primary partner or spouse. Others feel they can't find a way to communicate and connect with a parent, child or sibling. Other people want relief from feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed by stress. What they all have in common is a genuine desire to feel more deeply connected in their relationships and to live more fully and with greater ease. Does this sound like you?

I have a particular passion for working with couples to help them address conflicts such as communication, sexuality ( LGBTQ ), sexual trauma, anxiety, past relationship trauma, lack of intimacy, coping skills, relationship transitions, polyamory, infidelity, depression, and emotional regulation.
Relationships take work, but sometimes we don't know what work needs to be done, or how to do it in a way that strengthens the connections between us. That's where I come in. Therapy is like an objective mirror that reflects thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this mirror, you can begin to see a clearer picture of your relationship, so much so, that eventually you can carry that image outside of the therapy room & be happy & confident in what you see. In my work, I provide a space for vulnerability & understanding that allows these connections to foster change. We'll collaborate to make a plan that fits your specific needs.

Are you struggling with sexuality-related issues? Access to sexual health is a right. This includes expression of sexuality that is safe, free of judgment and shame, and centers pleasure. As queer folx, or queer folx of color, we've been told that our sexuality is wrong in so many ways. While the experience of marginalization is traumatic, we also have so much beautiful resiliency and abundant inner resourcefulness to counter that. I believe that we all deserve the right to heal, and that we all have the tools within ourselves to do so. My job is to partner with you & support gaining access to that intuitive healer within.

Hi, I'm Alex. I am a white, queer , trans non-binary person. I use they/them pronouns. And I am a healer. I care deeply about justice, collective liberation, and mutual aid. I dedicate myself and my work to deconstructing the harmful and misappropriated messages of our white supremacist, capitalist, cis-hetero-patriarchal mainstream culture, while supporting the organic and authentic self-expression that lives beyond toxic constructs. I aim to offer and support an experience of re-humanization.

I love working with LGBTQ and non-normative families.
My therapeutic approach centers on creating more opportunities for space and reflection. This is an active and transformative process where we learn how to interrupt old patterns of reacting and create room for intentionality in our responses. Many of us operate within the conditions of our early relationships and form ways of relating that we are longing to transmute. I support you as you learn to get to the root of the response, understand it, and to develop tools of self-healing so that you can one day see the well-worn reaction waiting for you, and choose something different.

I am particularly interested in the personal issues brought up by the special needs, illnesses, or other challenges, of people you care about. I use psychodynamic as well as practical and supportive approaches, depending on the needs of my clients.

I work with people who have been told they're “too sensitive” or “too much,” feel misunderstood, or feel alienated from the mainstream. I work with non-traditional partners looking for a therapist who "gets it." You are not too intense, too sensitive, or too "out there." The whole of you is welcome with me. I tailor my approach to my clients' needs and goals. I believe human beings are complex individuals with unique stories that inform their present reality, behavior, wants and needs, and feelings.
