Adult transgender clients will not be subjected to excessive gatekeeping.
Finding the right therapist is important. I have been practicing for over 35 years. Experience has taught me what works. My approach is flexible, down to earth and free of trend-driven techniques. Working with a non-judgmental therapist who understands you is essential, especially If you have concerns regarding sexuality. I am also a gender specialist who supportively assists transgender adults, adolescents, and their parents. Other specialties include interpersonal relationship issues, compulsive behavior, depression, anxiety, and grief/loss. I work well with people who value a confidential, personalized, and integrative approach.

Our therapists have expertise working with the LGBTQIA + and are gender affirming.
"Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once in a while you could miss it"- This is one of my favorite quotes from the movie Ferris Bueller's Day off because it is so true. Things happen to us throughout our lifetime that make us feel stuck, worthless, guilty, shamed, and like we are never enough. These ideas about ourselves dictate the way we learn, how we do in school and work, and how we love and connect to others. When someone has experienced trauma, these thoughts and feelings can be even more extreme which can cause significant distress. Growth and Empowerment is accepting new clients!

I work with adults of culturally diverse backgrounds, as well as gay and lesbian clients.
Therapy as a collaborative process in which we work together to understand the problems that have brought you in, and work towards mutually established goals. Psychotherapy involves verbalizing your thoughts and feelings, exploring relational and behavioral patterns, and learning how past experiences may impact you now. Through this process we strive to gain greater awareness of how both conscious and unconscious processes play out in your emotional and relational life. Ultimately, therapy can help individuals come to better understand themselves and enjoy greater choice in their lives.

You seem to have it all together on the outside. You live by the golden rule, working hard, extending compassion and taking care of everyone but yourself. You conditioned yourself to say “I am fine” when you know you are not. You feel stuck in negative cycles and perhaps distract yourself from uncomfortable feelings by over working, shopping or drinking too much. You are constantly in survival mode, feeling stressed, anxious, tired, confused and overwhelmed.

Drunk again-again! You’re confused why you drank more than you thought you would, yet again. Feelings of guilt and shame about drinking hang heavy on your heart. After making many promises to yourself and others to stop, your failure sits out there for everyone to see. Last night you had not a care in the world. This morning it’s hard to look at yourself in the mirror. Embarrassing episodes from the past haunt you. The hangovers are upsetting, but not as upsetting as the anxiety and depression you keep at bay with alcohol. You know your life would be better if you could change but you still haven’t found a way to do that.

What type of Bridgewater 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Bridgewater?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
