I use EMDR to help integrate the physical and emotional parts of trauma; CBT to help gain awareness of self-talk when discussing relationship and identity concerns; Harm Reduction Psychotherapy for substance use to understand the meanings drugs hold in our lives.
Some experiences cannot be put into words and yet their impact lasts a lifetime. Tendrils of that impact are apparent in most aspects of our lives. I specialize in working with such experiences, whether you call it traumatic, something else, or nothing at all. I have had years of experience in crisis management, interpersonal relationship building, and coping skills support, all from a culturally-informed perspective. My culture does influence my perspective and responses in life so I hold people’s cultural identity as central to their therapy.

In that time, I have also helped parents, significant others and loved ones of those clients navigate addiction and recovery.

I enjoy working with a range of concerns: identity development, depression, anxiety, relationships, & substance use .
Seeking an intentional space for healing and discovery is a meaningful choice. Through curiosity, warmth, and honesty, I work collaboratively to support clients in connecting their history, relationships, environment, to their current challenges and future goals. I believe that all of our stories are contextual, therefore I work towards identifying oppression-based barriers and explore the environmental impact through a social justice lens. My focus is to create a space where you can be empowered, express your pain, learn new ways of coping, and continue to grow into your most authentic self.

Although I am an experienced general practitioner and treat a variety of problems, I have unique experience in working with a) individuals with substance use /abuse related problems and b) law students, early career associates and attorneys trying to meet both professional demands and personal/family needs.
Whether you need a bit of extra support or a different perspective, or you are ready to dive in and work on deeper or more chronic issues, we can collaborate in helping you move forward. Together we can begin managing your distress/symptoms in the short-term so that more enduring solutions and changes can occur over time. Our work can help you to understand the sources of your distress in ways that will allow you to think more clearly, feel more deeply, and manage your life more effectively.

Therapy is a great place to begin your journey of self-exploration and healing. Are you seeking a change in your life? Are your default ways of coping not effective? Are you looking to form more meaningful relationships with yourself and others, or hoping to gain a better understanding of your gender/sexuality? I’m K.C.

I view therapy as a collaborative process where we can explore the ways your past impacts your present, and how these identities interact within larger systems.

I have an extensive history of work with persons who identify as queer/trans/GNC, survivors of complex trauma, childhood abuse/neglect, survivors of cults/high demand groups, substance use , dissociative disorders, attachment, IPV, and grief/loss.
People often seek therapy to resolve past experiences and life complexities and the decision to enter therapy may carry feelings of ambivalence and uncertainty. I believe that therapy is most effective when persons are offered an environment that is inviting, attentive, collaborative, affirming, and safe. Subsequently, my goal is to provide a challenging, but non-judgmental and encouraging atmosphere for persons to explore concerns and difficulties as a means of achieving desired change.

You've been through some shit, and you've realized that it's fucked you up more than you want to admit. You've tried dealing with things in your own way but you feel isolated, frustrated, and irritated. Passion, fun, and focus are hard to come by these days. You've tried to avoid feelings, situations, or conversations that remind you of what you've been through. But now, even avoidance isn't working. You turn to things outside yourself - relationships, substance use , job performance, and being perfect - to define you and keep you going. You want to find a better way to manage your life.

The primary focus of my practice for 40 years has been helping people achieve recovery from substance use disorders. I use a collaborative, motivational approach, rather than confrontation, and work with people on setting and achieving realistic and healthy goals for their problems. I believe, (as did Bill Wilson, the founder of AA) that there are many paths to recovery; each person must work on a program that reflects their unique needs and assets. I encourage people to explore their resources, their obstacles and their values in setting goals and in working a positive program. Secondarily, I am trained in couples/marital therapy.

I practice Gestalt Therapy and EMDR to help individuals learn about and work through any past traumatic experiences, as well difficulties with substance use .
Can you image a life where you are able to treat yourself with kindness and compassion? A life where you can discover the roots of your pain and learn new, healthy ways of approaching daily difficulties? A life where you don’t need to use alcohol and substances to cope with your pain? Whether you are new to therapy and curious about how therapy can benefit you, or are returning to healing, I am here to help. All that is needed to start this process is a willingness to be curious about your life, which is the first step to initiating the changes you would like to make.

As an individual therapist I have experience treating anxiety, depression, shame and self-doubt, substance use , and family challenges.
Therapy works when you feel genuinely seen and heard, and when we can build the trust to clearly imagine and move towards the ways you want yourself and your life to change. My approach to this work is warm, caring, and candid—and, above all, responsive to what you need. We might also laugh sometimes.

My specialties are in substance use , addiction, mood and anxiety disorders, and relationships.
How we think about our history, experiences, and relationships can center us, or can throw us off-balance and make it difficult to move forward. We get stuck. I offer clients an opportunity to thoughtfully examine how they are spending their time and energy and help them make conscious decisions to make manageable change in line with their values. Our work starts where you want it to begin. As we work together, we uncover what it is you value -- who and what are important to you. We will work together to make shifts, both great and small, that meaningfully reduce suffering and lead to greater connectedness and clarity.

Are you feeling stuck and in need of a change? Are you struggling with an underlying worry? Do you find yourself with little motivation to form and maintain relationships with friends and family? There may be something else, perhaps that is difficult to put into words. Sometimes, when it comes to dealing with personal and relational difficulties, we struggle with how to cope, who to talk to and what to say.

I have been providing psychotherapy for adults since 1991. I typically see individuals struggling with relational issues whether it be family or significant other and mood disorders (depression/anxiety). I listen and try to understand what a person needs in therapy; problem solving, support, insight into life situations, difficult work situations, or personal growth and understanding. I work closely with the Gay/Lesbian population and do couples counseling.
