I see anxiety and depression as myths and faulty narratives that we tell ourselves. They can frequently feel comforting, but they usually cause us significant challenges. I see LGBTQ identity as an ongoing process of discovery, rebirth, and coming home to yourself. Often nonlinear in nature, our identities are continually evolving pieces of ourselves. I often see clients re-enacting unworkable dynamics from previous relationships that interfere with their current ones. "
