You're someone who is looking to find just the right fit in a counselor. Maybe you are experiencing grief, or having difficulty adjusting to life changes. Perhaps you have a general sense of dissatisfaction with life, or have specific things you want to work through. Or, maybe you're feeling trapped by anxiety, or past trauma, and you want to feel a sense of hope; to be seen, heard, and understood. There is no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy, and the things you may want to work on are important and unique.

I am an integrative and culturally sensitive driven therapist who works with teens and adults to unlearn systemic inequalities and process intergenerational trauma, grief, and anxiety, so you can confidently befriend your feelings, navigate life transitions, step into authenticity, and feel more at home in yourself. Often times when we are going through something difficult, it can be hard to see our way out. This may lead to spiraling thoughts, a lost sense of security & safety, thinking "I'm not good enough", consistently feeling on edge, and feeling disconnected from ourselves and others.

Therapy is a vulnerable process, and my goal is to meet clients where they’re at and work with them in a warm, engaging, and direct manner. I work with clients collaboratively, seeing you as the expert of your own life and me as a third party to help see patterns, ask questions, and hold difficult things with you. My goal is to see holistic change for each client. I work from a systems perspective, meaning I incorporate the way your family, friends, community, work, etc. affect who you are. With this knowledge, we can build healthy frameworks and relationships.

It often starts with the unexpected. Unexpected news, unanticipated turns, unforeseen circumstances, and sometimes the unimaginable. It is at these times we can often feel powerless, afraid, confused, and uncertain. Change for some can be unwelcomed and for other’s change doesn’t seem to come soon enough. We cannot always choose what we go through, but we can choose how we go through it. Many seek therapy due to hard-fought battles with a variety of life issues, such as depression, trauma, anxiety, relationship problems, parenting challenges, and experiences from the past that keep them from moving forward.

www.paradoxtherapy.com/lauree. It's difficult to find a therapist, especially if you’re a multiply-marginalized individual who must cope with not just day to day stressors, but also the stressors of living within systems of oppression against multiple parts of your identity. If you’re in that situation, you may wish to find a therapist with an amount of lived experience, if only to lessen the burden of “explaining” how these systems affect you, and I’m passionate about helping people like you receive services that will more deeply understand the impacts of your environment on you, even if we do not have the exact same identities.

Let's imagine that therapy is like tending to your life as you would a garden. Together we'll discover what of the garden you'd like to keep, let go of, and grow. My primary focus is to create an inviting space between us to allow this work to begin and flourish. As a therapist I am gentle, warm, and playful; I am good at putting folks at ease even as we explore hard things. We'll laugh, dive deep when you're ready, and where appropriate, I offer practical tools and insights. I am particularly knowledgeable in the areas of ADHD/autism, narcissistic abuse, and queer identity.

Therapy is a journey where people can be accepted just as they are and gain support in navigating their internal world to find healing and growth. Time spent living in different cultures has given me a deep level of respect for the diversity of human experience and the interconnectedness of beliefs, relationships, environment, and mental health. I believe that understanding the narratives we have about ourselves and how they came to be can help us break free from shame and overcome barriers in our lives- ultimately gaining the capacity to redefine our sense of self.

I want perspective clients to know I genuinely care about the people I work with, and have a passion for joining people on their journey to a new self. The fact that you are searching for a therapist shows you would like something to change. We can often lose perspective about situations and how we deal with them. This can also be a result of things we have buried from our past, or relationships that did not support us in the way we needed.

It takes a special kind of courage to ask for help. Whether we have had a hardship sneak up on us, or been wrestling with it for a lifetime, expressing out loud a need for assistance is an act of bravery. I have been working as mental health counselor and psychotherapist since 2014, and in that time I’ve been honored to witness these acts of bravery from adolescents, adults of all ages, and families. I believe that our experiences matter and are worth talking about.

Accepting new clients. I'm queer and I specialize in supporting LGBTQ+ and nonmonogamous individuals around trauma, family of origin issues, and anxiety, including OCD. Before therapy, my clients think: Being in my head is stressful- there are things I'm afraid to talk about, or even think about. My past is still affecting me- I want to understand how to recover. Setting boundaries is really challenging. Sometimes I have nightmares or flashbacks of things I've been through. If that sounds like you, I can help. Therapy can be a safe, non-judgmental space to make sense of your experiences and create meaningful change in your life.
