As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I recognize that our identity isn’t the “route” of our negative mental health symptoms. However, the way in which we cope and heal are unique to our lived LGBTQ+ experiences. Often we are unable to find an affirmative and safe space to heal for lack of true empathy and understanding from our providers - and I want to help change that narrative. While our experiences may differ, having a therapist who identifies similarly to yourself can make a world of difference in your journey to improving your mental health.

You don’t have to go it alone. I am here to help you find your way back to living the life you want. It can happen. I'm here every step of the way. Because sometimes, things don’t turn out the way we planned. We didn’t know we would end up getting divorced, or blending families, or being a single parent, but here we are. We didn’t know we would adopt instead of birthing our own child, or be raising our grandchildren, or the difficulties we would face raising children in an LGBTQ home. But, here we are. These challenges can cause tremendous anxiety, depression, anger, guilt, confusion, sadness, and suffering. I understand.

I support people who work hard to have the life and relationships they desire, but who continue to experience self doubt, anxiety, depression or a sense that something is just not right. Is this you? It may be if… You’re conscientious and dependable but overwhelmed and frustrated. Outwardly, everything looks good, but inside you are hurting, and feel lonely, unworthy and guilty. And you worry that you are not doing life “right”. Also, you have a sneaking suspicion that your discomfort comes from your religious, spiritual, or cultural background. Or, it could be from a really difficult parent or partner.

If you have not had much success so far with therapy and feel that the suggestions have not helped to shift things in your life, I may be a good fit for you. I can help you explore what is contributing to your feeling stuck and overwhelmed and move beyond it towards real healing. I work with children, teens, parents, adults and families. Being a parent myself, I can often bridge gaps between children and parents.

Have you been feeling stuck or limited? Do you believe that you will never feel loved or appreciated? Do you feel that no matter what you do the outcomes are always the same? Or no matter how hard you try you will never be good enough and fail? Well it is not a coincidence. We create negative beliefs and meanings (from our childhood) about ourselves to create these issues. Have you ever said to yourself over and over again "I'll never find love?" or "I'll probably fail" Well, they are not true, but you made it your reality through habitual ways of thinking, feeling, and acting.

Seeking therapy can feel uncomfortable, intimidating and even overwhelming. Are you feeling as though something in your life seems “off or not right?" It may seem easier to continue with our "old day-to-day" habits because it is how we have been surviving all this time. We sometimes develop unhealthy patterns because it feels safe and we do not have the positive support needed. Significant change requires deep personal examination, which is hard to do on our own. My goal is to help you change old patterns and grow from past struggles. Growth and healing is not only a process but a beautiful journey.

What type of Palm Desert 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 Palm Desert?
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.
