LGBT+ Inclusive Therapists
A safer and simple way to find care
Your trusted therapist that celebrates the person in you
Even if your sexual or romantic orientation or gender identity is not a source of personal distress, you may still find that you encounter unique challenges on your journey to self-actualization.
Finding a competent mental health professional who has expertise and understanding of the issues faced by individuals in the LGBTQIA community is helpful to creating a supportive environment and facilitating successful therapy outcomes. Whether for guidance around your sexual, romantic, or gender identity or for concerns relating to mental health, I offer:
- A confidential and supportive space
- An affirmative approach to therapy
- Tailored care for your unique needs
- Flexible scheduling for your busy life
As an inclusive therapist, my experience with my queer clients has taught me that one of the most important aspects of care is ensuring an environment where clients feel safe to be themselves from the start. To create a space that feels affirming and supportive my office is not just judgement-free, it is wholly accepting of who you are so that you can be wholly yourself without fear.
Our Inclusive Therapist Sessions Help With:
- PTSD and complex trauma
- Substance abuse and addiction
- Grief and loss
- Coming out and relationship issues
- Family conflict
- Chronic illness
- Sexuality and gender identity exploration.
If you identify as LGBTQIA, you might feel more comfortable working with an inclusive therapist who understands your unique experiences. I am here to provide that understanding and support. Together, we will work to help you overcome the challenges you are facing so that you can live your best life.
If you are seeking an affirming and inclusive therapist in the Oakland area, please contact me to set up a free consultation. I would be honored to work with you on your journey of self-discovery and healing.
What to Expect in Therapy?
The first step is always the hardest, but it gets easier from there. You can expect a warm and welcoming environment where you will be respected and supported throughout your journey of self-discovery and healing. I believe that every person has within them the strength and resilience to overcome challenges and grow into their authentic self. My goal is to help you access those inner resources so that you can lead a fulfilling and satisfying life.
We will work together to identify your goals for therapy and create a plan to help you achieve them. I use an integrative approach that draws from a variety of therapeutic modalities and techniques, tailoring my approach to meet your unique needs. My hope is that you will leave each session feeling heard, understood, and empowered for the future.
If you are ready to take the first step on your journey of growth and healing, please contact me today to schedule an initial consultation. I look forward to meeting you!
