Are you a person trying to explore your gender, race, or sexuality? Do you struggle to communicate your needs, set boundaries, and be assertive? I challenge you to speak your truth, understand yourself, and be authentic while maintaining boundaries. I use humor and a strong therapeutic relationship to help you be your ideal, most grounded self. When I think about transforming and changing one's life, I always reflect on Audre Lorde's powerful words. "What are the words you do not yet have...Next time, ask: What's the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. "
As a psychologist, I have evidence-based expertise in depression, anxiety, gender/racial identity development, and race-based trauma. I love helping people with understanding and improving relationships, living according to one’s values, and weathering life's storms. I will make you laugh, call you into a conversation, and have you think differently.
Finding a therapist you trust can be difficult. I hope to be a source of light and empathy while helping you on your journey. Reach out to me via my website (valuesintersectingaction.com) or email at DrTThelemaque (at) gmail.com.
