Queer of Cups counseling is a place for queer/trans folks, fat folks and spiritual seekers of all kinds to feel seen, experience community and find relief from trauma, fatphobia, toxic productivity and many other issues that impact mental health. As a fat, queer, nonbinary witchy person myself living with Bipolar Disorder and other chronic conditions I know what it's like to feel invalidated by providers and out of place in the spaces of community you long for. I know what its like to fight for a sense of hope and meaning in spaces and with people who only know or accept pieces of you. You deserve healing without compromise.

Childhood trauma can look like: Bipolar , Borderline PD, PTSD, etc.
Whether we meet face to face or through Tele-Counseling, my goal is to help you feel comfortable, safe, and confident while we work to resolve your problems. Normal people have "symptoms" based on stressful events they experience. Mental health issues and symptoms are the normal response to difficult events in your life. More difficult experiences result in more difficult symptoms. We will make sense of your issues together and create change so you can return to a normal way of life. Call or email me soon if you would like my help creating new and lasting change in your life. I promise to work hard helping you.

Think of it as the beginning of falling in love with yourself...your relationships, and ultimately your life. If you are reading this I hope you answer the call, to yourself...it is the beginning of the type of change you have dreamt of, meeting your best self, meeting your soul.

Tharseo Counseling Services was founded around one idea: hope through a relationship with Jesus Christ. With hope comes the possibility of change, growth, and purpose. Without it, we can feel isolated, burdensome, and despairing. Tharseo exists for two reasons: First, to help the hopeless find their source of hope in Christ, which allows them to walk securely through life with conviction and purpose. Secondly, Tharseo assists those already with that hope to navigate obstacles that threaten to misalign them from their known purpose. We do this by integrating biblical principles with practical application.

My counseling philosophy is rooted in the belief that the client is the expert in their own life and that each person has an innate ability to grow and change. Therapy is a process that can help you identify unresolved issues that impact your access to that ability. Before beginning my time as a counselor I worked with individuals and families as a teacher, and by serving on the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board and the Los Alamos New Mexico Board of Education. Through that work, I saw the impact that empathy and mental health professionals can make in the lives of individuals, families and communities.

I have worked with a variety of different clients with unique and diverse walks of life. I became a counselor because I believe in people's ability to grow, learn and heal. I am here to help guide and facilitate that growth, to meet you where you are to help you heal, learn and grow. I provide a space of non-judgment, that is safe to walk on your path of discovery and recovery. Life can be a difficult journey at times and for different reasons, but it helps to have someone walk along side you as you persevere through these trials. I believe in hope, that even in our darkest of days, hope is on the horizon.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists

What is the most successful approach to treating bipolar disorder?

Living with bipolar disorder can be challenging, and a number of therapies have been found effective in providing support to patients as they gain the skills to understand and manage the disorder. Family-focused therapy is often helpful for children and teens (the majority of cases develop before age 19); it aims to minimize mood cycling by improving family communication and reducing conflict. It also helps young people navigate the developmental challenges the disorder can create. Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) and variants such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) help patients manage the thoughts and feelings that influence bipolar mood swings as well as develop specific behavioral strategies to counteract them.

What happens in therapy for bipolar disorder?

Because the patterns of mood switching and its triggers differ for each person and can change over time, mood tracking or monitoring becomes a basic way patients learn about the nature of their condition. One of the most common features of therapy is finding a workable method of mood monitoring, in which patients track their daily activities and rate their moods, then use the findings to adjust routines accordingly. Patients learn ways of handling the many stresses that arise in life so that they do not trigger mood swings.

What kinds of problems does therapy help with?

Like many other mental health disorders, BPD is heavily influenced by stress; therapy provides skills for coping with stressors of all kinds. Therapy is extremely important for helping individuals identify the situations that may trigger mood switching, so that mood swings can be prevented. Therapy may especially target recognition of the early stages of mood change so that they can be managed. In addition, therapy helps patients deal with the significant amount of turbulence the disorder can create in relationships and in work life.

What is the goal of therapy for bipolar disorder?

Therapy helps patients set up their lives to maintain stability so that their mood isn’t constantly threatened by daily events. Perhaps the first task of therapy is to educate people about the nature of the disorder. At the same time, a primary goal of therapy is to enhance adherence to drug treatment. Extended periods of mood stability can prompt patients to discontinue medication, triggering relapse, while the early phases of manic episodes can feel so energizing that patients stop medication, ushering in full-blown mania and the altered self-perception that can lead to destructive behaviors. Another major goal of therapy is to understand one’s mood patterns so as to minimize both the frequency and intensity of mood cycling.
