Currently, I have a waitlist for both individual and relational therapy; and quarterly openings in my two therapy groups, 'Queer Authenticity & Attachment', and the 'TransMasc Group Therapy'. Reach out fore more info! + + + + + Hi! I'm Del, founder of Present Beings. As a therapist, I see individual, couple & adult families. My clients are LGBTQIA2S+ folks from all backgrounds & abilities who are tired of going in circles with their people or parts - this includes partners, colleagues, siblings, parents and even conflicting aspects of one's Self!
As a clinician, I employ Experiential (Somatic, IFS), ETF & Narrative therapies. Many of my clients come to me to work with themes of boundaries & communication, gender exploration & dysphoria, family & developmental transitions, agency & self worth, ecological connection & the many griefs of white supremacy culture, and much more.
I recognize that we all hold complexities in our navigations & experiences of the world. I approach therapy from an acknowledgement of the both/and of these experiences. We all bring areas of wisdom & ignorance to the relationships in our lives. Let’s work together to expand your perspective, deepen your belonging, & explore the ground of your humanness!
