However, a lot of these theories were not built for BIPOC or queer folx, so I will bend and twist them into something that works - like Yvie Oddly.
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. Don't worry I won't read you, though a client has said I snatched their wig once. I want sessions to be fun, while also helpful. Once we have a relationship built, I will happily call out patterns that I see 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 to have the emotional impact these have on us sashay away.

*NEW CLIENTS ACCEPTED via TELEHEALTH* Ever feel like you have a way to do something, and though it does not work the way it seems like it should, you feel it “works for you?” Do you find that you have a way of behaving and struggle to break free from yourself? I find that humans act in patterns. We think about a problem and act in a way that is the most comfortable to us and tend to repeat these patterns regardless of the result. I work with people living with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger concerns, separation/loss/grief issues, and people coping with discrimination.

My goal is to provide kind, supportive, trauma informed therapy to trans and cis women and men as well as genderfluid and nonconforming people.
*Please use the email function to contact me for the quickest response* You’ve finally decided! Perhaps you're tired of repeating the patterns that leave you feeling stuck, frustrated and disconnected. So often we tell ourselves that we are the problem- that it lies within us. That we are somehow wrong. A depressive. An anxious person. A bad person. These ideas come from stories that others (and society) tell us about ourselves; other people pinpointing what they see as significant and telling our own story to us. This leads to the distress so many feel in these trying times.

Im ready when you are! Therapy can only be successful when there is solid relationship between the client and the therapist. I believe, building trust, rapport and unconditional care for a client are necessary for success to manifest! We have to be willing and ready to do the messy work. As your therapist, I also have to be ready. I have to be ready and capable of containing all of what comes up in therapy. A little about myself, I go by "Dori", I am part of the LGBT community, latinx and have been doing this work for about 7 years. I graduated Boston College with a masters of clinical social work in 2015.

I believe that coming to therapy when your life is not proceeding in the way you wish is a courageous and important step in building the life you want. Although it is sometimes difficult or frightening to make that first phone call, it's a strong sign of your belief in yourself and your desire to live fully and joyfully. I respect the decision to begin therapy and understand that it's sometimes a hard step that requires great courage. I firmly believe that however you're feeling now, there is a capacity for healing, change, and joy within you.
