Casey specializes in working with gay, lesbian, bisexual , transgender, and non-binary folks.
You want inspiration to pursue what matters, and less anxiety about what doesn’t. You want to stop apologizing for what makes you you, and to speak aloud the fears, fantasies and experiences that have previously been silenced. You want to revel in yourself—maybe for the very first time. Or you know your relationship is on the rocks, but you aren’t sure where to begin. You think you might need therapy, but it’s hard to get started. You’ve bought books, read articles, and exhausted your emotional and mental resources - you’re exhausted. You no longer want to do this alone. You want to know where to go from here.

I have had specialized clinical training to meet the needs of those who identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual , transgender or are questioning their sexual orientation as well as those who have or are impacted by HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening or serious illnesses.
For over 30 years, I have accompanied others on their journey towards greater self-awareness, more fulfilling relationships, and exploring the needs and challenges of maintaining sound emotional, physical and spiritual health. My experience is particularly helpful when working on self-esteem issues, depression, grief and loss, relationship struggles, and faith and spiritual development. My clinical work draws upon skills developed while working as a hospital chaplain, pastoral counselor, bereavement counselor, youth counselor and a mental health therapist in a social service agency.

ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Sometimes we lose our way, have parts of ourselves we wish to change, or long for better relationships. While I work with everyone, I have specialized in working with lesbian, gay, bisexual , transgender, non-binary, and queer individuals. As a result, I am familiar with how the world around you can make it difficult to get your needs met. Therapy provides a space where we consider your unique experience without judgment or criticism and help you find a path forward that is inclusive of your needs. I offer an affirming environment to help you pay attention to what you really want and who you really are.

I specialize in working with both heterosexual and lesbian, gay, bisexual , transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ) issues.
I believe in a holistic approach to counseling and therapy and provide full-spectrum and client-specific treatment in a warm and non-judgmental setting. Most of us lead complicated and stressful lives and often find ourselves unable to cope with the many challenges facing us on a daily basis. I am both a yoga teacher and therapist and utilize an eclectic approach to therapy. I draw from various therapeutic approaches to address the unique needs of each client. I also incorporate mindfulness, breathing, and meditation into sessions when it is appropriate for dealing with stress, anxiety, and related issues.

As a person-centered and multicultural oriented therapist, it is my philosophy that you know yourself better than anyone else and that it is your right to guide the therapeutic process. I strive to meet clients where they are at. I believe that you are a unique individual with diverse experiences and there is value in that. The differences that make you, you, should not only be seen, but understood and validated. Over the past five years, I have worked in research concerning the health inequities of the lesbian, gay, bisexual , transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) community, particularly among folks of color.

In my 8 years of practice as a psychotherapist, I have worked with people facing many struggles, including surviving past trauma and abuse, feeling suicidal, and severe/chronic mental illness. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I have worked with many people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual , queer, nonbinary, and gender fluid, and have supported people through gender transition and accessing gender affirming health care. As a white therapist, when working with BIPOC clients, I use the frameworks of anti-racism and cultural humility, and strive to make space for talking about racism and racial differences.

In therapy, it feels essential to look at not only our own thoughts and emotions but also the expectations set by our environment. I utilize affirmative, trauma-informed, and relational lenses to encourage insight and explore assumptions impacting how we engage with the world around us. My clinical and research focuses relate to sexual identity, gender diversity and transition, and ethically non-monogamous relationships. Aside from these, I work often with anxiety, depression, communication, conflict management, boundaries, trauma, life transitions, discrimination, substance use, and premarital/marital counseling.

One of my primary areas of expertise is working with members of the LGBTQ+ community in areas of positive sexual and/ or gender identity, coming out, transitioning, and relationship concerns.

I have been honored to share and co-create space with folx of vastly different experiences and intersections of identity. I work with LGB, trans*, and gender-expansive folx; poly and kinky folx; HIV-impacted folx; young people, disabled folx; and individuals with histories of chronic homelessness, and/or issues related to substance use. I also have experience working with individuals impacted by anxiety, trauma, discomfort, depression, chronic and persistent mental illness, and a range of neurodiversity. The space we share is built of mutual regard and destruction of the "therapist is expert" paradigm.

It’s ok to not be ok. And when you’re not ok, it’s ok to reach out for help. Though life can often get us down, it is possible to rise above your circumstances, take control, and fight back. I believe that insight is a powerful tool in creating change within. As a therapist, I can help you better understand the connections between your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. With this new insight, you can identify problematic ones and challenge, replace, or reframe them. The path to change starts with identifying your underlying needs and finding more effective ways to fulfill them.

In the therapeutic setting, my goal is to provide clients the space to be their most authentic selves. Too often in society, we are forced to wear a façade, or be a fraction of ourselves in any given space, for fear of being “too much” or fear of not being accepted fully. In our sessions, I encourage you to take up space unapologetically. I love being able to help my clients discover their real selves and give them the tools to overcome any obstacles in their journeys towards wellness. I show up to sessions as my authentic self, and I encourage my clients to do the same. The work begins where the masks end.
