Throughout my work, there has been a focus towards but not limited to: Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, LGBTQ +, non-monogamy, relational conflict, geropsychology, and Somatic theory.
I am a Trauma-informed Therapist. Therefore, I strive to create a collaborative therapeutic experience. Establishing a space that is heart-opening, inviting, judgement-free and secure-inducing is essential in my practice. The goal and emphasis throughout our alliance are to form equanimity and a balanced collaborative experience between you (the client) and myself. As a social justice Queer advocate and Therapist, I get how various institutionalized parameters may impact the flourishing of oneself: such as Anti-Blackness, Gender-Based Oppression, Capitalism, Anti-Climatic change, and all the other forms of systemic injustice.

I am passionate about working with teens, young adults, adults, and members of the LGBTQIA + community to find their strength and sense of calm in the midst of chaos.
When we find ourselves in times of increased stress and uncertainty we often find our personal everyday struggles are magnified making it harder than ever to maintain a sense of hope and stability. Anxiety, depression, and grief may be more intense lately – that is where therapy comes in.

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.

I have over 13 years of experience working with a variety of issues. I approach therapy in different ways with each individual based on their needs but often pull from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space in which I provide support, encouragement, and guidance. I have experience with and enjoy working with the LGBTQ + community including completing assessments and writing letters for gender affirming surgeries. I look forward to working with you and would be honored to be part of your journey.

I offer assessments for gender-affirming care for the trans community.
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.

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.

Sex is considered an activity of daily living and I believe that sex, sexuality, expression of gender, and creating intimate and loving connections are just as important to people’s overall health and well-being as any other occupation that is meaningful in their lives. I'm extremely passionate about the intersection of sexuality and intimacy with illness and disability. I approach issues of sexuality and intimacy from a holistic perspective looking at the influence and interplay of physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, social, cultural, and environmental contexts to provide the best interventions to meet my clients' needs.

Practice Accepting New Clients Immediately! I believe that everyone can change and grow at any time in their lives. I don't believe that there is a limit to human capacity. A person's mental health and many common mental disorders are shaped by various social, economic, and physical environments operating at different stages of life. Good mental health is integral to human health and well-being. Risk factors for many common mental disorders are heavily associated with social inequalities. I don't discriminate against anyone, and I am fluent in American Sign Language (ASL).

Are you struggling? Maybe it's thoughts or feelings that you aren't comfortable sharing with others. Maybe it's a disconnect from your partner or kids. The things that we wrestle with below the surface can be difficult to put into words. Frequently, we put a smile on the outside when really inside we are stressed to the max, at the end of our rope. It is easier to carry on in a way that conceals any unfavorable circumstances. When those close to us think our life is "good", it's easy for them to believe it when we say "I'm doing okay." Let me be the person you share your true feelings to. I can be your caring & confidential advisor.

By working in a collaborative manner with a client-led and person-centered approach, finding motivation and unearthing hidden strengths can lead to positive change and new outlook on life. By utilizing new coping skills and building a therapeutic alliance, we can work other to overcome those previously insurmountable waves of life.

I am currently conducting free virtual consultations to be placed on my waitlist. I offer services for individuals and couples. I love working with folks asking big questions- it may be about life, spirituality, values, etc- and getting into the gritty details of learning new skills and building sustainable habits to support our overall health. My clinical style involves partnering with clients to embark on a journey of self-exploration and self-discovery. I also tend to explore our relationships with others and society and client’s goals therein, as a part of a holistic approach to mental health.
