As a member of the LGBTQIA + community myself, I am affirming to and welcome all sexual identities and genders.
Are you feeling like your life has been more difficult to manage than it used to be? Do you feel like there is something or multiple things holding you back from feeling content with your life? There are so many things we as humans are constantly juggling to keep a balanced and fulfilling life. In my work with clients, I help you to make sense of the chaos and get to a balance that works for you. There is a spectrum of trials and tribulations that impact and influence our ability to make it through the day. I provide a space of empathy, compassion, and an outside perspective to help find blind spots or reframe meaning.

I work with those who present with anxiety, depression, trauma, mood disorders, and lack of identity. I am affirming and work extensively with LGBTQIA + clients. I am educated on social justice issues- including racial, cultural, and religious differences. I can be particularly helpful for those feel alone or trapped in their tangled thoughts. My guidance typically involves reframing thoughts, building assertiveness, identifying/managing emotions, trauma-informed care, harm reduction models, and processing experiences.

Are you seeking support for your child? I work with families who are ready to make changes and work towards healing. My expertise is with youth and their families, using play based interventions to best meet the needs of children. I utilize play therapy to support parents and caregivers in deepening their connection with their children, and supporting children in expressing feelings, self regulation and accepting limits. I have experience with addressing trauma, depression, anxiety, attachment and relationship problems, nuances and challenges of parenting and exploration of gender and sexual identity.

I have particular experience and interest working with clients on topics of sexual orientation and gender identity, particularly within the LGBTQ + community.
I believe in a safe and open relationship between client and therapist is the foundation of change, and I value getting to know each of my clients to best understand your experiences. I believe in identifying and using your strengths and values to help you progress toward your therapy goals. Social justice is an important value of mine, and I work with clients to identify systemic factors that impact you, your relationships, and your mental health, to view the bigger picture of client problems and avoid over-pathologizing clients, especially those from marginalized communities.

I enjoy working with individuals who experience difficulty with stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and LGBTQIA + concerns.
My name is Mercedes Carey, and I'm a licensed social worker. I'm interested in assisting people in discovering new ways to live a lifestyle that promotes healing on a mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual level. I use somatic approaches, such as mindfulness and movement, to treat the mind and body together. As a queer masculine-presenting woman of color, I know what it’s like to belong to multiple marginalized identities and navigate spaces where your entire self is not acknowledged or welcomed. I am deeply committed to providing a safe therapeutic environment that recognizes and honors individuals as a whole person.

Tired of people who just don’t "get” you because you’re different? Looking for someone who will affirm you and your identity? Maybe you need help with depression, anxiety, addiction, or relationship issues but you’re worried about being misunderstood or judged for being queer . Or maybe the issue IS sorting out your sexual orientation or gender identity. As a transman, I get what that feels like. This is a safe space for you. I have more than 25 years of experience in helping people improve their mood and their lives. We'll work on getting you feeling better, even when the world has been less than kind. You deserve no less.

I am LGBTQIA + allied, racial justice allied, body positive, and would love to see how I can be an ally and therapeutic support to you!.
I believe wellness has different definitions and paths for each person, and I love being a part of my clients' journey in creating, adjusting, and respecting that picture. My concept of quality therapy includes discovery, personally defined healing, creating new connections, and finding ways to take self-compassionate action. I enjoy art, media, and literature and integrate this into my work whenever possible. Clients and colleagues have described me as calm, compassionate, curious, and a bit nerdy. I embrace these identities in my role and enjoy working with a variety of communities and identies.

My role will never be to tell you what to do; rather we will work together to find the perfect solution for you. I accept clients from all backgrounds, identities, and cultures. I have a warm welcome for those of the LGBTQ + community along with open relationship structures/polyamory. Areas of most experience include anxiety, depression, OCD, addiction (harm reduction model, preferably). No area or challenge is too small or seemingly too insignificant in which to engage in therapy. Clients will be successful when they come with an open mind, a willingness to be vulnerable, while also being provided their own pace and comfort.

Our approach is to view the work of counseling as a dynamic process in which counselor and client work together towards helping the client better understand and cope with the problems of day-to-day living, and to connect with those inner resources and strengths that will lead to a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

Lastly, I recognize the fraught history of the field of psychology in relation to various diversity issues (among them, trans identity, class, race, polyamory, sex work, and sexuality), and seek through ongoing inclusivity training to ensure that our practice does not replicate this history.
The poet Rumi wrote, “These pains you feel are messengers. Listen to them.” My role as your therapist is to assist you in identifying, understanding, and communicating the feelings you are feeling as messengers telling us a story about how your present day experiences and feelings are in conversation with those formed before you had agency, awareness, and choice. I strive to create a safe environment where, together, we can explore the chapters of your life in order to give you the insight necessary to implement change, alleviate suffering, and grow as a thinking and feeling person in a complicated world.
