I treat individuals, couples, trauma, adult survivors of incest and people who abuse their partners as well as abused partners.
When people are in emotional pain, they usually try to "fix it" themselves. Making the decision to see a therapist often occurs when they have run out of options. I believe that seeking professional help is an action of hope. I can listen to people's pain because of my profound belief that therapy offers a second chance for a more satisfying life. Through the process of therapy, I can offer a more satisfying life to people who are experiencing relationship issues, depression, anxiety, unhappiness with their lives and couples who are having difficulty in their relationships.

I have experience with serious psychiatric disability, substance abuse , child & family treatment, parent guidance, and working with agents and targets of domestic violence .
I appreciate a diverse caseload and work to unpack the complicated issues of power, privilege and shame in relationships with others and our own selves. Finding the right match is key. Ask yourself: can i be open? do they ask good questions? do they get me? can they call me on my stuff? do i feel supported? do I like their responses to what i am saying and not saying? I offer groups for: Partners of Survivors; Queers Who Harm; Couples group; Parenting as Trauma Survivor; Crones, Witches and Hags (aging AFAB); and Clinical Supervision. I am a Certified Sex Therapist with ASSECT and work erotically marginalized folx.

Maintaining our mental health requires a holistic approach. One that includes taking care of not only our mind but our body as a whole. That is why I treat my clients using a combination of talk therapy, body-based methods, mindfulness and naturopathic guidance. When healing trauma, simply putting things into words is not sufficient and could in fact be triggering. For this reason, I employ a Somatic Experiencing method to help clients safely access and work through their emotions and traumas stored in their muscle memory, which promotes healing of a wide range of conditions such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, and childhood abuse .

I address a wide variety of difficulties and issues in my practice, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse , relationship difficulties and personality disorders.
I believe that therapy can not only alleviate specific hardships or teach more compassionate self-care, but that therapy can be emotionally transformative. I practice this belief with rigor, I believe my role is to provide a supportive, yet challenging environment that fosters emotional well-being, new insights, and change. I am an active participant in the therapy session. Together we will be able to set therapeutic goals and follow a clear path to achieve them. I hold emotions and affect in the highest regard and pay particular attention to non-verbal communications.

We have many words for the psychic, emotional, and self injuries we endure - bi-polar, psychoses, depression, anxiety, borderline, PTSD, abuse , addiction, grief - and working together we learn to unclot the wounds so they heal.
Whether the collapse is "out there" or "in here," it often seems the world is collapsing. Many of us seek therapy because the sense of losing our mind, our self, our loved ones, or our livelihood is terrifying, and the real threats of catastrophe are debilitating. Knowing what we want becomes increasingly difficult, and we struggle to take shape and hold on to ourselves in the presence of others. We fold up or fold in to protect ourselves and our relationships, but then aloneness, desperation, panic, and self attack set in.

Often this work includes addressing issues like anger, passivity, grief, substance abuse , sexual abuse and sexual addiction, career difficulties, and hypochondria.
Whether with partners, family, friends, children, parents or at your work, relationships are the centerpieces of our lives. Handled thoughtfully, they uplift, or they can frustrate, provoke guilt and aggravate. For twenty-five years I have helped people to find greater satisfaction through better understanding of the events in their lives, along with honest discussions of options and helping to find the motivation to move forward. I have published articles about marriage, parenting, and growing healthier relationships, and a book: HOW TO KNOW IF ITS TIME TO GO. Website: lbirnbach.com. I work interactively and confidentially.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
