Choosing a therapist that is a fit is hard. The more I can let you know about my approach and focus for my work, the less runaround you have to do.
In all of my work, I help clients address and unpack a range of emotions: anger, hopelessness, depression, jealousy, insecurity, fear, grief, stress, anxiety.
I currently work with adults in multiple settings: individuals, relationships, and group. No matter the setting, these aspects apply to all of my work:
- I identify as a GLBTQ-affirming therapist. This means that I support folks of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Being an ally to the GLBTQ has been a major part of my own life story, and even as a counselor, I am passionate about supporting the inherent dignity and respect of those in the GLBTQ community. However, please note: I do work with many clients who may not have full comfort or familiarity with some part of what it means to identify as GLBTQ. In the role of a therapist and as an ally, it is important that I hold a safe space for my clients to explore that discomfort or lack of familiarity.
- I honor a client’s spiritual or religion identity, incorporating it into our time together as requested and as appropriate. Sometimes, this also means working with identities that no longer fit the client or that the client is wrestling with or contemplating.
- If it appears that I am not a good match for your needs, I would ethically honor my obligation to refer you to someone who is.
