Everyone deserves to feel at home in their body. I work using an intersectional feminist perspective with a focus on trauma, gender, sexuality and wellness and specialize in working with LGBTQ+, TGNCNB and queer identified communities. Working with a therapist as you strive towards your goals of healing can be an act of liberation and a vital part of envisioning a just future for yourself and the world you live in. The mind and body are impacted when you experience stress and trauma and my approach is to address both using tools like meditation, EFT, guided visualization, and body movement.

As a queer-identified psychotherapist, I am sensitive to emerging questions of sexual orientation and gender identity, and am absolutely committed to providing identity-affirming care.
Life can be tough, but there are opportunities for healing and personal growth buried within even our most difficult moments. Many people, children and young adults alike, are finding themselves suffering from heightened anxiety or depression in the face of these uncertain and rapidly changing times. Psychotherapy is an excellent tool to help ground us, repair our relationships, and regain perspective in the wake of overwhelming worry or loss. I work with children, adolescents, and adults to address the confusing behaviors, painful emotions, and troubling thoughts that cause unnecessary suffering.

As a BlaQueer therapist, I understand what it's like to exist at the intersection of multiple identities within a system that insists on being oppressive. Culturally competent, identity inclusive, and emphasizing anti-oppression work, I aim to create a safe and brave space that allows you to fully explore your presenting concerns from issues of identity, intra/interpersonal relationship issues, work related stress, and more. I also have extensive experience working with issues related specifically to the BIPOC LGBT+ community, anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.

I create an open, empathetic, non-judgmental space and draw from a variety of philosophies and modalities including: psychodynamic, CBT, trauma-informed, somatic, feminist and relational approaches, and art and play therapy. I bring an awareness of and curiosity about the impacts of systemic oppression, historical trauma, and early childhood experiences, to work with you to move towards goals of your choosing, whether those be internal or external. I have worked most with teens, parents, families, and young adults, from a variety of race and class backgrounds, and in particular Jewish and LGBTQ+ communities.

I specialize in working with couples, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues, grief/bereavement, and women's issues.
Since the age of eight, I have regularly attended counseling, and it saved me. Decades later, counseling has become my calling--my desire to share the techniques that help us cope with the forces in our lives we cannot control. As a natural advocate of mental, physical, and spiritual health, I also teach yoga regularly. I believe that we reach a state of peace, when we take our lives into our own hands. My mission is to help you build your individual strength, gain insight, and develop effective ways of coping with life and relationships.

I center LGBTQIA+ folx in my practice, focusing on the complex traumas that frequently impact our community and supporting people in their healing.
We live in a world that encourages disconnection from our bodies and thrives on us not taking time and space to heal ourselves. There is not always time for deep healing work, but it is crucial to identify when that is needed. I am looking to work with folx who are looking to do that work. Taking space for yourself is often seen as selfish, if you are one of those folx who says "Sure therapy is great, for other people" I invite you to question that resistance and ask, why you don't feel like you deserve that support? I believe you do! Reach out for a free phone/Zoom consultation, both Telehealth & In-Person sessions available.

My diverse practice reflects and serves the needs of my neighborhood. My style of practice is interpersonal/humanistic meaning that I try to take an open minded approach to psychotherapy. The work is an exploration of the nature of relationships and sources of anxiety leading to an understanding of moment-to-moment experience of self and others. This understanding may lead to meaningful change and to the emergence of choices which were not previously considered. I am respectful of individual needs and differences and consider social & cultural influences. Email is best: drscurtis@gmail.com.

In my therapeutic practice, I believe that healing is cultivated within the safety of a supportive and non-judgmental relationship. I find that this allows for individuals I work with to feel grounded in their truth as well as feel empowered to use the tools they gain through our work together. My practice offers relational, narrative, and psychodynamic approaches from a trauma-responsive lens. Through the development of a trusting therapeutic relationship, we will compassionately get to the center of challenging patterns and support you in your process to feel like your most authentic self.

I believe everyone has their own unique experience in therapy, and that one approach or theory does not fit all. Having said that, I believe the therapeutic relationship is central. We are hurt in relationships, and we are healed in relationships. A therapist's job is to provide an open space so that the client can express thoughts and feelings, and have the experience of being listened to without judgment. For children, it is to play freely in a safe space and be able to express without interruption or interpretation, and for the therapist to accompany them with genuine interest.
