I’m excited about us getting to feel more whole. We’re not helping ourselves, or the earth, or the people we’re in community with if we’re shutting down and killing parts of ourselves. We learn quite early to value some and shut down other parts of ourselves, and the oppressive, dominating, greed-driven forces of our world traumatize us so that we can no longer access vital parts of ourselves. And its messed up that it’s even our job to take care of ourselves in the first place - that we have to heal from things that aren't even our fault. But we do, or at least, we can. I enter as a compassionate guide to walk that path with you.

“Bridging is the work of opening the gate to the stranger, within and without.” – Gloria E. Anzaldúa. You’re at an inflection point. A chasm appears insurmountable. The ground has shifted; you’re on rocky terrain. The trail’s end is hazy, but you catch a glimpse: the outline of a hopeful future, somehow. Neglect can match abuse in its decimation of the soul. So let us nurture those neglected pieces of yourself too long ignored.

Being in relationship with others is challenging and can be a difficult act to maintain. But only in relationship can we grow closer to learning to live in community and remain connected to others. I am comfortable with alternative types of relationships, as well as all people on the gender spectrum. Together we will explore ways that are best for you to learn how to communicate in a way that enables you to live more authentically and develops connection with others.

The poet, Mary Oliver, asks: "Tell me, what is it that you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" I am so honored to walk with my clients in a skill-based approach as we explore these kinds of questions and access that deeper wisdom available to us all. The human psyche is such a magnificent entity--your search for an ultimately satisfying life deserves to be witnessed and supported as you move through it! I believe that as you recognize patterns which may be limiting your life and release them, you will find the source of true empowerment as well as our interconnectedness with it.

Are you curious who you can trust with your fears and worries, or your hopes and dreams? Have you tried quitting/cutting back on those negative coping skills but seem to keep falling back into your old patterns? You might be wondering if there's someone out there who can celebrate you for being a little "outside the box". Maybe you’re in a consensual non-monogamous relationship, you identify as LBGTQIA2+ or you’re considering transitioning your gender or sexual orientation and you're wondering who you can trust to be affirming and knowledgeable. You deserve to be truly seen and celebrated for everything you bring to this world.

NOW OFFERING VIRTUAL SESSIONS ONLINE! My approach is friendly, collaborative, and attentive to your individual situation. Through the use of various talk therapy modalities, and Attachment Focused EMDR, I help clients sit in the not knowing, and explore how their past informs their present. I can help you differentiate between thoughts, feelings, and sensations, and to live a life you enjoy living. Whether it is depression, anxiety, or a big life transition, my intention is to create a space where it is safe for you to explore any thought or feeling you may have. Therapy can provide a person with great insight, meaning, and relief.

My goal as a therapist is to make my clients feel seen. Authenticity, language, and empathy are the three tenants in my therapeutic work. Our lived experiences shape the way we interact with others and, as a result, old patterns may resurface. By creating dialogue in the room, my clients and I are able to foster a space for healing work to begin. As a growth-oriented clinician, I value the growth that comes from the therapeutic process and want to empower my clients to be the change they wish to see in their lives.

I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a therapeutic focus on gender and sexuality, early trauma, and family and relationship dynamics. My approach is empathic, warm, and thoughtful. My clients often wish to understand their identities more deeply; seek support staying true to themselves in their relationships and community; and pursue healing and meaning-making following trauma. Through our work, you can develop new insights and coping skills to manage overwhelm, anxiety, depression, or life transitions. I'm particularly dedicated to working with queer, transgender, non-binary, and kink communities.

I’m passionate about supporting folx who transcend “norms” through their unique experience of unfolding. My approach is warm, curious, trauma informed, and relationship-centered. So much of our trauma as a species has occurred in relational contexts. Therapy can be an opportunity to re-define and discover what it means to be in healthy relationship with oneself and others. Through building our therapeutic relationship together, I think we can uncover a lot about how you move through the world, where you get stuck, and how you relate to others.

I hope that we can approach this work with open hands. I value a client/therapist relationship that feels alive and I want you to be able to find the type of support and vibe that is right for you. I work collaboratively, creatively, and truly believe you own the work we do together. Theoretically, I am interested in Psychodynamic, Humanistic, and Depth Approaches. I enjoy the perspective of working with Systems, internally and within the cultural context in which you live. I want to offer a meaningful space for you to explore what is coming up for you in your own life and meet you with compassion, warmth, and acceptance.

Are you feeling lost? Out of control, burned out, stuck, or like an imposter? Are you or your loved ones repeating behaviors, relationships, or situations, and wishing you could break the cycle? Maybe little things feel more stressful than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. Even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge you; it's to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.

Do you find trust & intimacy with yourself or others a challenge? Are you encountering barriers in your relationship with yourself or with others that leave intimacy feeling inaccessible or unfulfilling? I understand. The experiences we've had, from early childhood up to the present, can have a profound impact on the way we perceive ourselves, others, and even the world around us. Therapy can offer supported self-discovery that can lead to growth that allows for deeper acceptance, connection, and fulfillment. I believe in the self-determination of human beings, and in our abilities to grow, change, and heal.

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.

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. Let me introduce myself. I'm Tracey. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who specializes in working with gender and sexuality. Whether you're newly wrestling with issues around identity or have been out for a million years and need a safe space with a therapist who "gets it", you're in the right place. As a queer therapist I understand the nuances of gender and sexuality and how they relate to who we are and how we relate and connect with those around us.

Whether you're inspired to explore new aspects of your gender or sexual identity, seeking to reignite intimacy, rekindle passion, entertain untapped desires, or reconnect with your deep felt sense of self, all of you is welcome in my office. We often find ourselves longing to seek more congruence in our lives, to weave together all the pieces of ourselves to step into our wisdom and grow our self expression. Learning to deepen the intimacy with yourself and others is the first step along a lifelong journey.

You may be feeling overwhelmed by struggles with relationships, work, or identity. I can help you turn your own loving attention toward these unhealed wounded areas so that you can experience relief and begin to thrive. I'm a good fit for those feeling stalled in their growth, those seeking wholeness or rebuilding their trust with themselves, couples doing reconciliation work or struggling with coparenting, LGBTQIA folks and/or their parents... and honestly? I'd also love to be a therapist for other therapists in search of any of the above. We are all growing and healing. Teletherapy also available to folks in CA.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in California, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in California listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
