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.

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.

While I work with clients of many ages and backgrounds, I specialize in working with transgender, non-binary , and queer clients who are exploring their gender and sexual identities.
My style is to show you unconditional kindness coupled with honest feedback so that you might develop self-awareness and achieve your full potential. Insight into your undiscovered strengths and unconscious dynamics will give you the freedom to live your most authentic life. I have helped clients of all ages recover and heal from trauma, deepen intimacy in their romantic relationships, develop effective communication skills with family and coworkers, and learn to manage stress and anxiety. For clients who carry a lot of shame about their identity or sexuality, I seek to foster a relationship where you feel seen, held, and valued.

I enjoy working with women and non-binary folx ages 25 - 50.
There are elements to all of us that are hidden and unknown until we encounter right timing. It is important to uncover these secret parts of self, yearning to be discovered, with the right support. A few things you should know about what it's like to work with me: My style is warm, witty, compassionate + forthcoming. I value transparency, kindness, justice + joy. I'm directive when called for + I like to challenge my clients to go deep. I draw from my own experience of trauma + healing.

As a justice oriented therapist who identifies as white, queer, and trans/ non-binary , I approach therapy through a depathologizing lens.
Therapy is most effective as a collaborative process in which your needs and desires for growth are prioritized. The foundation of my approach to therapy stems from the wholehearted belief that our bodyminds, those seemingly interminable knots of body and psyche, are orientated towards liberation. As much as we may desire freedom from those things that provoke suffering in our lives, we also desire the freedom to imagine new futures.

I utilize an embodied & relational approach that is curious, compassionate, strength-based and trauma-informed to help you achieve your goals. I attune to issues of systemic oppression such as racism, patriarchy, capitalism, colonization, ableism, fatphobia, and other forms of structural violence and its related traumas. As a queer, non-binary child of immigrants, I'm familiar with bi-cultural experience. I'm sex & sex work positive, and experienced in working with kink/BDSM & non-monogamy/polyamory. I'm a good fit for folks who want to experience greater fulfillment, pleasure, and, satisfaction in their relationships & life.

You feel isolated, misunderstood...lonely. You’ve been told you’re “too much,” “too sensitive,” or “intense.” You feel frozen in profound suffering. You feel that no one has seen the real you and have a sense that there are parts of yourself that maybe you haven’t seen. Hiding yourself has become unbearable, but you don’t know where to start or who to go to for help making sense of your complex inner world and experiences. We can be deeply wounded in relationships, past and current, but it is also in relationships that we find healing.

I care particularly about the impact and transformations of oppressions you may endure and wish to offer myself in service to the ways in which you would like to shift.

During unsteady times, we can become consumed and overwhelmed by our own pain and suffering. We may hide from the world and even from ourselves. The idea of being seen may evoke shame, fear, and anxiety that can keep us stuck. I am an inner wilderness guide, gentle shadowdiver, and explorer of unknowns. In our work together, we will practice navigating the crashing waves of life, diving below what seems to be true, and connecting with something larger than ourselves.

Your relationship with yourself is key to how happy you are at home, at work, and beyond. I collaborate one-on-one with clients to cultivate self-compassion and heal from old wounds so they can move from surviving to thriving. I act as a guide and sounding board, with a commitment to respecting each individual as the expert on their own experience. As a queer, genderfluid therapist and activist, I support partners in monogamous and consensual nonmonogamous relationships, and I’m committed to honoring and uplifting the lived experiences of people from underrepresented racial backgrounds, abilities, genders, and sexualities.

My love of psychotherapy is rooted in deep belief of the transformative potential of individuals to heal, grow, and realize their most healthy and happy selves, and in turn to have greater capacity and freedom to change our communities and society. As a nurse practitioner I aim to work with you towards that goal. In much the same way that we are shaped by our early relationships, environment, and experiences, healing too happens in relationship. In an attuned therapeutic relationship, we are able to have different experiences and develop a greater sense of authenticity and connection to ourselves and the world around us.

I can help you holistically address a number of issues, such as: complex trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, embodiment and dissociation issues, compulsions, addiction, assertiveness, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, gender, and sexuality.

Hi there--I'm Leyla! I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#123936) and Associate Professional Clinical Counselor (#2458). Kudos to you for taking this first step and seeking support! It's my goal to provide a compassionate and creative space to work together on whatever may be holding you back or weighing you down. My approach is based on this belief: We are all entitled to love ourselves wholly and deeply.

I'm all about collaboration, imagination, and respect!

Folks come to therapy for a variety of reasons that all boil down to change, whether they're struggling to handle it or make it. Many of my clients' lives don't align with societal norms, either intentionally coloring outside the lines or struggling to fit in. Folks may find themselves overwhelmed, dealing with big emotions, the effects of complex or single-event trauma, complex medical issues, or chronic pain. I am passionate about working with the LGBTQ+ - including trans kids and their families, disabled, and neurodiverse populations. I like to work with individuals, couples, polycules, and families of all shapes and sizes.

There are so many reasons folx come to therapy, but most often it is because folx notice something isn’t working quite right, and they would like a change. My practice is rooted in the belief that therapy is a form of liberation. Understanding your emotional landscape, locating yourself in society, and exploring capitalism’s impact on you can help find your authentic self. My work is relational, person-centered, and trauma- and strengths-informed. Each person is unique, so we will collaborate to tailor your therapy to meet your needs. I draw upon the following therapies: humanistic, attachment, liberation, feminist, and CBT.
