I am a trauma specialist working with developmental, relational, and shock traumas. Relationship is what we long for from our deep selves. From birth, our instinct is to connect in order to feel safety, comfort, and wholeness. This yearning moves with us throughout our lives. Connection gives us a sense of belonging and of being "okay". Be it the relationship with self, body, others, and life experience, the connection and flow of it is vital for healthy functioning. When the connection is blocked, frozen, or severed, a whole-self cannot thrive. Reconnecting is essential for our authentic self-expressions.

I take this to mean that I have been able to establish real, honest relationships with my clients. I treat my clients with respect, fairness, and an opportunity to be their true selves.

We all struggle when communicating with our partners from time to time. During lockdown, it may be happening "way too much"! During the shelter-in-place orders, feelings of frustration, fear, sadness, grief, and anger might be starting to build. You might be fighting more, or retreating to your corners and there is an icy chill in the house. Maybe its resentment? If any of these emotions seem familiar, it may be time to reach out for support. I offer in-person and video sessions.

Active Imagination and non-directive guided imagery can help you access inner wisdom and gain insight. While the thinking, rational mind is essential for everyday concerns and problem-solving, its usefulness is limited regarding questions of meaning, value, and depth. Active Imagination constructively channels the psyche's innate creative power. When we tap into the wellspring of the visionary imagination, we feel an enlivened sense of meaning, purpose, and connection.

Reaching out for help is one of the most humbling experiences we can go through in life. In a world that is constantly pushing narratives on us based on race, gender, sexuality and/or dominant cultural beliefs, it is life-affirming to engage preferred narratives that support and empower our own values. In difficult times it is easy to feel misunderstood or lost, longing to reconnect with our own resources. My work aims for those reconnections. My approach is collaborative, working from a place of respectful curiosity. I am not the expert on your lived experience. You are.

OCD is a debilitating condition that consists of irrational or excessive fears and concerns that become obsessive and manifest as intrusive, unwanted, disturbing thoughts, images or impulses. These obsessions are accompanied by repetitive and time-consuming mental and behavioral acts called rituals or compulsions that are done to prevent bad things associated with the obsessions from happening. Avoidance is the third component of OCD, which involves deliberately staying away from things, people and places that trigger or worsen obsessive fears and concerns, or to avoid the risk of some dreaded event.

In my 27 years of experience, much of it devoted to working with the transgender community, I have come to believe healing takes place when a strong therapeutic alliance has been established. Therapy is about understanding and effecting the way you feel about yourself while learning how your behavior effects relationships with others. Being able to be vulnerable and feel safe with a therapist goes a long way. Change can — and does — take place. Be open minded and prepared to laugh, cry and everything in between. COVID-19 requires much of my practice to be conducted via Telehealth — for more info: https://genwell.org/telehealth/
