Announcement icon I have openings for tele-therapy (video or phone sessions) & would be honored to support you during this challenging time. Free phone intake
During the current public health crisis, I can offer you all my emotional resources to help you feel safe and grounded. I am currently working via phone and video sessions (FaceTime or Zoom) to address people’s need for contact, support and direction. I specialize in working with diverse populations—also the Hollywood industry--to help address loneliness, concerns about finances, relationship distress and worries about survival. I feel it is important to use this challenging time to make meaning out of this societal change, to find out what’s being asked from each of us to grow. I am open to your call and to see how I might help.
I have spent the last 25 years training therapists as a professor at Antioch University. I founded the Antioch University LGBT Specialization and Colors LGBTQ Youth Counseling Center. I work with people of color, women, LGBTQ people, Hollywood folk, and heterosexual men wanting new answers. I am starting a ZOOM group for people who work in the industry.
I will engage you in a conversational way. I will check-in with you to see how we are doing and what can be improved. Together we come up with goals. I work well with people dealing with minority stress. Feel free to contact me for a free phone consultation. We can also do teletherapy. Clients are also able to text during this stressful time.
