I specialize in working transgender and non-binary youth and their families on matters related to gender identity.
My approach to therapy is primarily based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). A core idea in ACT is that trying too hard to get rid of or control our emotions tends to backfire. Instead of trying to get rid of unwanted thoughts and feelings, I will help you learn to react differently to them so that you can keep your focus on living a meaningful and fulfilling life based on what’s important to you. We will work together to set meaningful goals to address your concerns–whether they relate to life transitions, depression, anxiety, body image, grief/loss, job or academic stress, or gender and sexuality.

While I work with a wide range of clients and issues, I have extensive experience treating anxiety/mood disorders, as well as relationship conflict, addictions; I work extensively with the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender ) community, often exploring spiritual-religious-sexuality conflicts.
I work together with my clients toward more self-compassion, awareness, and understanding. These bring about lasting positive change. I treat a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, addictions, interpersonal issues (i.e. couples counseling), psycho-spiritual/religious conflicts and abuse, sexuality, and pragmatic life-coaching, to name a few. I have extensive experience working with the LGBT community, some "out," others not; some religious, others not. I use Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CBT) when indicated, coupled with mindfulness techniques. I also explore with my clients deeper-seated issues, including exploring our "shadows" and the roots of addiction and shame. I serve adolescents and adults.

I was married for 20+ years and we raised 2 children; one is transgender .
My belief is that we enter life with an inherent idea of who we are and what we want to accomplish. As we strive for acceptance, we cover ourselves in layers of others' expectations, eventually losing our ‘selves’ in the process. My desire is to help you strip away these layers to discover who you are at your core. We do this together by using feedback, intuitive healing, trauma informed therapy, dream work and active imagination. We do this by sitting with and listening to your stories of pain and unmet needs. We exchange heavier emotional layers with lighter ones until you can then stand in your own original brilliance.

Do you struggle with frustrating issues that you, your family, or your partner(s) can’t seem to get past? If you’re going through a period of loss, change, or feeling stuck, therapy might be the way forward. My therapy style is collaborative and integrates the wisdom from my client’s experiences and from counseling theories rooted in empowerment and equity (Narrative Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, and Emotionally Focused Therapy). My therapeutic work is rooted in anti-racist, anti-capitalist, anti-fatphobic, trans- and queer-affirming, polyam and kink-affirming, neurodivergence-affirming theory and practice.

We are passionate about personal growth and self-actualization which can emerge through the therapeutic process. We believe everything that occurs in life is not by accident, but are in fact lessons to be used in grasping one's own meaning of life. Although we tend to favor experiential approaches, our theoretical orientation focuses on an integrative style of therapy. We begin with the client gradually building a foundation of acceptance and trust that is both affirming and non-judgmental. A successful therapeutic relationship is built upon making a connection through engagement allowing a client the freedom to just "be."

Now accepting couples, families, and individual clients. I believe that every person begins healing when they are validated and fully seen. I offer affirmative care for teens, adults, couples, and families to embrace their authentic selves and strive toward their full potential. Our work together may look like recognizing harmful internalized messages or thought patterns, accessing language to communicate needs better, exploring gender/sexuality, examining relationship dynamics that cause stress, getting general anxiety under control, or bringing clients closer to one another.

I help people living with depression, self-identity struggles, grief, trauma and have experience working within LGBTQIA+ and ethical non-monogamous communities. The children I see have/are experiencing abuse, behavior concerns, and life stressors. My role as a therapist is to offer authentic and genuine reflections and to help strengthen your mental capacity and confidence to handle internal and external stressors. I believe we all have a story to tell, some intertwined with tragedy and challenges, and that our time together is for you to tell yours. I want to sit beside you, listen, and hopefully offer you clarity and healing.

Therapy is an inherently collaborative process. As such, I believe that effective therapy begins by building a foundation of trust, understanding, and compassion. I see my clients as the experts on their experience, their values, and their goals. My role is to work with individuals to identify and develop creative strategies, tools, insights, etc., to support their growth and healing. As an integrative therapist, my work is primarily based in CBT/DBT, Gestalt, Mindfulness-based therapies, and is neuropsychologically informed. My perspective is grounded in feminist and intersectional frameworks, with an emphasis on cultural humility.

Currently doing virtual consults. Be sure to check out profiles for Mandy Curtis, who has immediate openings. I'm here to support individuals with post-traumatic stress, interpersonal difficulties, life transitions, and more. I really appreciate the complexity of personality and identity formation. My ideal client was raised with a slightly "messed up" childhood, which they laugh about but say they are "over it". But, they may be having some concerns in their current relationships and be asking themselves- why is this a pattern for me? This curiosity can lead to powerful transformations.

As a clinical psychologist trained as an integrationist, I enjoy working with people from a holistic perspective. I believe it is important to consider not only what is going on in the present, but also what has happened developmentally, biologically, interpersonally,and cognitively. In addition to conceptualizing our experiences as people from a systems perspective, I conduct individual, group, and family therapy using a DBT-informed frame of practice. What this means is that change comes about by learning new behaviors in a variety of contexts while balancing the reality of a person's situation and skill level with acceptance.

Often we seek out counseling when we're not feeling like ourselves, we feel out of control, we struggle to manage life's changes, or we feel dissatisfied with our life's direction. Sometimes we just feel stuck. Regardless of the reason, we naturally question change but can be unsure of the process. I provide a collaborative space to define that process and connect the person you see yourself as to the person you aspire to be. As a therapist and musician, my eclectic style and strategies are focused on building self-respect, healthy boundaries, insight, confidence, and self-compassion.

I work with clients of various sexual, gender, and cultural backgrounds to address issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, identity concerns, and life transitions. I collaborate with clients & their other providers to determine the focus and nature of therapy. I believe all people are oriented towards health and growth, but sometimes develop problematic ways of thinking, acting, being, and interacting. In therapy we explore areas of your life to find ways of being that help you feel more contented, balanced, and effective.

My approach to therapy is collaborative, creative, and compassionate. My goal is to create a safe and warm space so each client feels comfortable sharing what's on their mind and in their heart. This may include diving into trauma, grief, and other challenging life experiences that prevent a person from feeling at peace and operating at their highest potential. The philosophy that guides my work is that everyone has the inner wisdom needed to thrive. My role is to help clients access this inner wisdom so they can heal, grow and live the fulfilling life they are seeking.

Accepting new patients. To reveal and work through one's difficulties can be scary, but fulfilling and enriching. Thus, I work to create a trusting, supportive environment free of judgement that allows for a safe space to dive into the depths of one's unique story and what brings them to treatment. Therapy can be a powerful process in which one can gain new insights, decrease distress and suffering, uncover strengths and limitations, and improve relationships both with one's self and others. I will treat you with compassion, empathy, encouragement, and honesty as we navigate the therapeutic process together.
