**Unfortunately I cannot accept new clients at this time. If my profile speaks to you, consider reaching out to Emily Swayne, the Mental Health Practitioner at my practice.** In my practice, I strive to get to know your authentic story. I welcome individuals, couples and adult families, and am especially committed to serving the geek community, and anyone who considers themselves outside of the mainstream. My style is casual and relaxed, yet challenging. I believe that the bond between therapist and client is more important than any theoretical/philosophical stance. That said, I take a mainly narrative approach to therapy.

I provide a safe, respectful, nonjudgmental setting to explore and discover solutions to diverse challenges. A critical element of therapy is the development of a trusting relationship between the client and therapist and can impact the healing process. Healing is a unique and individual process, as such, I believe it is important to learn of the uniqueness of each client and their goals for therapy. I work with diverse populations, including LGBTQ adolescents and adults. I have been an advocate/trainer/educator on the health and well-being of LGBTQ people for over 20 years.

I am passionate about supporting people in fully embodying their personal power. With couples, I work to support each partner in communicating their deepest truths effectively. When we work mindfully in our relationships—including in the therapeutic relationship—we can identify the early attachment wounds that led to the ways we maladapted to the world to protect ourselves.

I have helped clients examine a wide range of issues (relational conflict, workplace difficulties, eating disorders, body image distress, addictions, trauma, spirituality, gender identity, aging, grief and loss, and sexual orientation). We will work together to alleviate your most pressing problems as well as develop a fuller understanding of the underlying issues that keep you stuck in emotional patterns that limit your capacity to enjoy the quality of life you desire.

Often, having an educated observer - a calm presence in the room - creates a safe space for sorting out issues and listening. During therapy, we may discover your relationship's unique boundaries, expectations, and communication styles. I draw from a broad social perspective and an understanding based in attachment and psychodynamic theories. If you are looking for couples therapy or individual therapy you will hopefully find our work together life changing.

**Telehealth Available**NEW INTAKE availability!** I have often hoped that counseling could be viewed as routine as oil changes or perhaps, more pleasant: lunch. The truth is that counseling is often utilized during crises or when things feel “too much.” Maybe your experiences have led to challenges in your relationships, leaning on numbing agents to cope, having thoughts that are not typical for you, avoiding things in your life. Maybe old wounds are resurfacing or you're grieving something huge. You might not even know why you're reaching out. Anything is acceptable here. All I require from you is curiosity.
