With over twenty years experience in LGBTQ counseling, research, and teaching, I have a unique understanding of our community. Among LGBTQ individuals anxiety and depression may involve feelings of emptiness, relationship problems, interpersonal sensitivity, or addictions. The roots of these struggles can vary, but it helps to have a therapist who grasps the alienating impact of growing up in a world that disavows the core of who we are. I will help you address these issues, and others, through a deeper approach that can feel energizing, challenging, and even liberating.

Non-monogamous/Poly, Kink/Fetishist, Queer/Trans, Anti-capitalists & “others” who deviate from conventional cultural scripts know too well how normativity may act as a tyrannical agent of unhappiness, especially when preferred expressions of intimacy & embodiment are read as “problematic”. That’s why I do not equate “healthy” with “normal” nor aim to be prescriptive about how you “ought“ to experience being in this world. Living along the fringes of normativity is not an easy choice.But it can be a worthy choice, fulfilling and purposeful! And yet also accompanied by high costs, which can feel compromising to dignity and self-worth.

Life has a way throwing curve balls. From unexpected challenges to fluctuating deadlines, life sometimes causes us to feel like we are aiming for a moving target. Relationships are guaranteed to have pitfalls that can surprise anyone. Trauma often is the leftover when a home or society is not welcoming, when violence has been perpetrated on you, or when you are faced with overwhelming loss. You will need access to your internal resources when addressing past and present trauma. Living life with a centered mindfulness can help guide you to wholeness.

Although "pain" is something we would like to avoid, it is an inevitable part of life. But the positive aspect of painful experiences is that they can provide the opportunity to change... change that helps us grow and transform ourselves, bringing our lives a deeper sense of meaning. It is often very difficult to recognize these positive life changing opportunities while in the midst of profound pain or even after it subsides but that is where therapy can help. Collaborative work in therapy can facilitate awareness, promote healing, and illuminate paths for change leading to a more meaningful relationship with yourself and others...

I use a strengths-based approach & believe in the inherent wisdom of each individual. Therapy thus serves as a road map, illuminating the path so the client can make conscious choices.

Early relationships shape the way the mind and brain develop from our young years into our adult lives. Our connections with caregivers induce neural circuit firings that persist throughout our lives, shaping how we think, feel, remember, and behave. When we are lucky enough to have secure attachment experiences in which we feel seen, safe, soothed, and secure—the “four S’s of attachment” that serve as the foundation for a healthy mind—these relational experiences stimulate the neuronal activation and growth of the integrative fibers of the brain.

Coping Skills Therapists
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exasperate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalization, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, therapists in Hollywood can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Hollywood or for a Hollywood coping skills therapist, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Hollywood coping skills therapists, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counseling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Hollywood are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Hollywood

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Hollywood you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Hollywood and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Hollywood or family therapy in Hollywood.
