Our practice specializes in working with People of Color, Queer (lesbian/gay/bi/pan), and Trans clients.
At times we can all feel overwhelmed, and especially right now. Maybe you’re starting to feel a little disconnected from the people around you. Or maybe you just aren’t feeling like your old self. You feel it’s time for a change, but don’t know where to start. Dealing with stress, on top of everything else, can leave anyone feeling overwhelmed, invisible, and out of control. Let’s work together using the existing tools within yourself to help you start feeling whole again.

Seeking support for life’s challenges is a courageous step. Therapy is a place to explore your present thoughts, feelings and experiences, all of what are influenced by elements of your past. The core beliefs and feelings we have about ourselves create a blueprint for how we live our lives. When these beliefs are negative, they lead to feeling stuck, anxious, and unhappy. This may be influenced by present or past experiences, distressing events, unhealthy relationships, or unhelpful behavioral patterns. Staying with the familiar often feels safer, even when it is having a negative impact and is not working.

In a world as vast as ours, it can be easy to feel lost. Societal pressures, social media and marketing may send a message that you are somehow not enough; that being your own unique self is somehow lacking. You may be experiencing feelings of anxiety, worthlessness, and depression. These internal experiences rarely stay internal for long, and you may find yourself lashing out at classmates, coworkers, and loved ones. You are not alone. Many people from young children to teenagers and young adults feel as though they are not doing enough, or that they don’t belong. You do belong and you are enough.
