I find value in many different modes of psychotherapy, including cognitive ones that start in the head and target thoughts and behaviors and somatic ones that start in the body and target emotions and relationships.
Hello and welcome! My name is Andrea Boyd, (she/her) LCSW-C, and I am a psychotherapist specializing in working with young people, roughly ages 14-26. This time of life—late childhood and early adulthood is a time full of complexity— a time when we make myriad choices about who we want to be, who we want around us, what we want to do, and what we value, all while navigating a culture that puts impossible expectations on us. The amount of pressure to perform or to be a certain way in these years can be overwhelming, especially for anyone with a different or marginalized identity.

Traumatic and stressful life experiences have made it challenging for you to live life the way that you want. You find yourself struggling with thoughts like, " I'm not good enough", "I'm a failure", or the feeling that "something is wrong with me". You've struggled with anxiety or depression for as long as you can remember. Living this way is exhausting, and you want something different. Regular talk therapy can be helpful, but sometimes it's not enough. Brain- and body-based therapies, such as Somatic Experiencing, Brainspotting, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ( EMDR) can help.

These include relational-psychodynamic therapies, mindfulness-based therapies, and Somatic Experiencing for trauma resolution.
I believe every person has the ability to grow and transform. I believe that we can best do so when accompanied compassionately along our journeys. Through increasing self-awareness, cultivating our inner and external resources, and understanding the interconnected influences of mind and body in our daily lives, we can transform through painful times and arrive into greater and deeper capacity for relationships to ourselves and with others. I specialize in working with adults through trauma healing, grief and loss (including that of beloved animals), LGBTQIA+ identities and relationships, depression/anxiety, and life transitions.

MAY 2021: CURRENTLY FULL My intention is for you to feel safe bringing all parts of yourself into our sessions. All of you - all feelings, all identities - are welcome. Only in a relationship of relative safety & non-judgement can growth happen. I maintain that YOU are the expert on you and as such I take a client-centered, collaborative, and relational approach to therapy. I will use our relationship, my experience, and YOUR insight & self-knowing, as well as appropriate tools & techniques. I will ask about your goals, challenges, strengths, and what has worked for you in the past. Your care will be as individual as you are.

My specialties include trauma counseling using mind/body healing modalities such as EMDR, somatic processing and art as well as talk therapy approaches.
Do you feel depressed, anxious or disconnected to others? Does hurt from your past haunt you or disrupt your day? Do feelings of shame or engaging in maladaptive ways of coping make life that much harder? Sometimes life events have overwhelmed our mind and body's capacity to cope and to feel stuck in how to move forward. This can be due to past trauma or relational harm, all while battling heavy emotions. Whatever it is that has led you to this point today where you are seeking support, you are one step closer to connecting to your worth as a human and the freedom that can come from releasing the pain of your past.

In addition to psychodynamically oriented talk therapy, I integrate mindfulness, trauma informed approaches, somatic imagery, and EMDR, all depending on your individual needs.
There are times that you might feel stuck in patterns that make life feel unsatisfying and empty. Maybe you feel depressed, anxious or in chronic pain. You may be negotiating a relationship or trying to adjust to a new job. Psychotherapy allows you the space to understand how your past and present intersect and what gets in the way of living life to your fullest while also helping you to tap into your inner resources. My approach is collaborative, thus giving you the space to reflect carefully. I work with you to develop better coping skills and help you to understand & manage complex feelings of anxiety or sadness.

My goal is to help patients learn to be responders and to be in charge of themselves. Throughout treatment, a functional medicine approach is employed. Care collaboration is valued. Patients with cognitive, emotional, and behavioral challenges benefit from a variety of cognitive behavioral, neurobehavioral, and psychophysiological modalities. Patients with such conditions as emotional and physical trauma, chronic pain, addictions, brain injuries and disorders (autism, Asperger's, ADD/ADHD, motor and balance challenges, for example), sleep disorders, anxiety, and depression are treated. Individuals with neurological, autoimmune, metabolic, endocrinological, and other complex medical conditions find that the treatment modalities promote healing.

In a non-judgemental, respectful atmosphere I accompany people along their journey to living richer, more meaningful life. I encourage people to broaden their awareness into their thoughts, feelings, reactions and behaviors to identify strengths and whats working and challenges and how they are getting in the way. Recognizing the the mind-body-spirit connection, understanding healthy and antiquated defenses and increasing capacity for feeling a greater range of emotions at a deeper level is an important focus of the psychotherapy process. Identifying feelings, understanding reactions and learning better, more effective means of communicating with others is integral as well.
