Have you ever wanted a drag queen as a therapist? Well you've come to the right place. In my spare time from working at as a therapist, I'm a drag queen, so I'm not afraid to call you out. I want sessions to be fun, while also helpful. Once we have a relationship built, I will happily call out patterns that I see, that haven't been working. Our community faces barriers that our cis het counterparts don't - systemic barriers, dysphoria, feeling outcast (even in our own community). We will work on how to reduce the emotional impact these have on you, which often starts with setting a goal of putting yourself first.

The therapy session is a time and space one sets aside to focus on self. To be with self. And to build one’s self. It can be challenging to reflect on patterns, thoughts and emotions, relationships, past events and/or change, but it can also be transformative and rewarding. My role as your therapist is to witness your process and to reflect back with you along the way. The therapeutic relationship is an essential piece of my practice and is built on honesty, trust, empathy, and compassion.

Something isn’t working. Life isn’t what it used to be. Do you ever ask: “Is this what it comes down to?” Do you worry it’s too late to change, that mistakes and hurts cannot be undone? Worst are the times you feel your best option is to settle for the short-lived comforts of familiar ways, because cold comfort feels better than no comfort. I treat many individuals and couples who worked hard to achieve a picture of success but struggle privately with relationship issues, trauma and PTSD, self-esteem, anxiety, and unresolved past issues. Some have tried therapy or self-help, but it wasn’t personalized enough or the right approach.

Seeking therapy is a sign of personal strength, not of weakness. It takes awareness in our lives and courage to be able to reach out for help. Often people who engage in therapy are actually doing well in life, but would like to do better in one area or another. Working with a licensed therapist can provide the objective and professional feedback needed to assist in defining challenges, developing goals, and working toward positive change. Benefits of therapy may include improved and more satisfying relationships, increased energy and productivity, and feelings of well-being.

Most of us do the best we can with the resources we have. Sometimes we think no one understands our worries & fears. If open to it, we want to work with a therapist when our usual ways of relating aren't helping & we feel stuck, anxious, angry or depressed. Therapy often helps provide insight into our strengths & internal resources we already have to help navigate challenging times. In sessions, I focus on working with clients to unlock this strength to steer their lives in the direction they want. I bring curiosity, warmth, respect, & empathy to my sessions.

What type of Boston mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Boston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
