Is the Past, Gender Expression, or Anxiety making choices instead of You for a full and happy life? (and not doing a very good job of it?) Are you feeling just maxed out every day; sometimes starting from the moment you wake up? Do you feel stress that overwhelms your body's capacity to cope? If so, you may be looking for a therapist like myself. I have personal and professional experiences in all these areas and can understand through shared experience and collaboration how to help you get back in charge of your choices.

Stressful events past and present can interrupt your life by causing Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Depression. It's as if you are held hostage by your past. I use Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy to process these life disrupting memories and open your life to more peace and contentment.

All Gender and Sexuality Expressions are Welcome Here. Full freedom of expression is necessary to live your most authentic life. If you live in the state of California therapy can be conducted where you are over this insurance reimbursement site; https://doxy.me/susanutter Now, let's get to work!
