Specialties include; anxiety, trauma, dissociation (dp & dr), relationship issues , chronic illness/autoimmune, and somatization.
I am here to tell you, you are not broken, even if your mind may tell you that you are. It is probable that these thoughts are connected to trauma—a way to make sense out of how uncomfortable you feel in your own body. Trauma can impact our health, body, emotions, relationships, perception of self and reality. Somatic Therapy may support you finding some relief in being you. Let's begin to explore and integrate what's causing this pain and psychological suffering without bypassing or minimizing your experiences. Your body has the wisdom to provide the answers. We just need to listen, honor and acknowledge its truth.

It's usually used for relationship scripts, but to me, it goes far beyond communication skills.
Hi and welcome! I offer individual therapy and couples therapy. I bring my unfiltered, authentic experience with my clients to sessions. My style is very relational, and it's anchored in cognitive science, attachment theory, mindfulness, social justice, and somatic psychology. I consider myself an especially huge nerd with evolutionary psychology!

If you are an individual or couple who experiences frustration and unhappiness in relationships rather than the sense of ease and flow that you long for, I urge you to dare to hope it can be different and call me. The process I use does not usually take years, like you've been led to believe by popular media! It works well with many types of "personality symptoms," from relationship issues to depression, anxiety, fears and other specific ways in which you've been frozen out of the life you want to lead.

I am a culturally competent therapist who provides therapy to individuals, families and couples. As a trauma-informed therapist, I have experience working with troubled teens, marginalized communities and individuals that feel stuck in the shame/blame/guilt cycle. I love working with people of color, who are struggling with racial imposter syndrome while navigating their relationship with immigrant parents. And in regards to couple's work, I utilize Attachment Science and Emotional Focused Therapy to create an evidence based approach to help couple's achieve better communication in their relationships.

The therapeutic relationship can be utilized as a learning relational platform, where you engage in experiential activities and carry them out into the real world.
You've come here because you're lost, lonely, confused or in pain. Perhaps you've done everything the "right way" but that hasn't led to happiness. You want things to change, but you don't know how, or where, to start. I believe I can help you, as I've helped many others, including myself. Therapy can be a radical, healing experience, and I attend my own therapy sessions on a regular basis. In our work together, you can unpack and witness your whole self in a safe, collaborative, and empathic way.

U.S. society at large makes it easy to feel like we're not enough; late stage capitalism thrives off of our anxiety and disconnection. I am here to remind you of what you already know but might have forgotten: you are enough. Indeed, there's enough of everything for all of us. Many clients find their way to me because they want to work through challenges related to their identity, acculturation, sexuality, gender expression, relationship formation, and early traumas. My identities as a queer, non-monogamous, sex- and kink-positive, immigrant woman tend to attract potential clients who share some of these positionalities.

Do you feel disconnected from yourself or others? I can help you understand and move through experiences of depression, anxiety, relationship difficulty, and parenting difficulty.
I believe my job is to create a sense of safety in which we can think about the things you might have trouble thinking about. There may be parts of your history that are difficult and frightening to contemplate on your own. Together, we can help you begin to understand yourself, trust yourself, soften toward yourself, validate what is true for you, and eventually accept all the parts of you. I’ll want to understand your current difficulties in the context of your personal and family history, and will listen with curiosity and warmth to understand the way in which your history may be affecting your current situation.

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 love working with those who don't always feel comfortable or "seen" in clinical settings: LGBTQ+ folks, kink/BDSM practitioners, sex workers, POC, poly/open/nontraditional relationship architects, people with disabilities, Burners, self-proclaimed weirdos, and anyone struggling with or exploring identity.
I believe that experiencing loving, nurturing relationships is the best part of being alive. I also recognize that for many of us, creating and maintaining such relationships can be incredibly hard. I view psychotherapy as a means to explore whatever is currently blocking our path to healthy, fulfilling and supportive connections--both to others and to ourselves. Sometimes that means building skills we never learned in the first place. Other times that means examining challenging past experiences. Whatever the circumstances, I am here to support your journey toward growth, fulfillment, and ultimately, greater joy.

I specialize in individual and couples work with depression, anxiety, various relationship problems, low self-esteem, parenting difficulties, eating and addiction disorders.
I invite you to visit my website drehrhart.com for a more complete sense of how I can help you, or you and your partner, who I am, and how I work. In short though, if we work together we would explore the dynamic terrain of your relationships - your relationships to your emotions, your thoughts, your behavior, to your idea of self, and to others. This is done in a relationship of genuine curiosity and compassion, so that change, in place of judgement, is fostered. Eventually, this productive and curious environment or relationship that we foster together, can be internalized and taken with you as a tool for your life journey.

Welcome. I do this work because I care deeply about healing through connection and compassionate relationships. I love working with people so they can learn about themselves, challenge old stories that may no longer serve, and ultimately live more authentic lives. Each of us is strong, powerful and beautiful, with unique gifts to offer this world. Yet sorrow is real, and having a safe and compassionate space to address grief, transition, relationship issues , trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, and questions about gender and sexuality is fundamental and healing.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
