Anxiety and panic are feelings that the majority of people will feel at some point in their lives. If you feel out of control and under attack, know that you aren't alone. Together we will explore your difficult feelings in a safe way, and discuss the ways in which you can change your behaviors to affect your anxious thoughts and feelings. So that you have the option to step back from the big red button and take a breath.
The word "geek" is often used as a shorthand for "passionate." And no one is as passionate as the fans of popular culture and geek culture. I have been a proud geek for all of my life with interests in Star Wars (Yes, even the prequel and sequel trilogies), Disney, gaming, musical theatre, and many other fandoms. Together we can explore the universes and characters you know and love, and see how those reflect on your version of reality.
My goal with my teenage clients is to provide you with a place of acceptance and openness where you can explore your identity, triumphs, and struggles free of judgment. I will not be another adult who just tells you how to live your life. Instead, we will work together to lift the weight of the things that are holding you back and take on the fears you have for the future.
For people identifying anywhere on the gender identity or sexual/affectual orientation spectrums. I have experience working with clients on identity exploration, coming out, living life within the community, dating, social justice, and developing self-esteem and self-worth. Together we can navigate any fears or insecurities that come up for you, and build a life of love and pride.
I have training in the diagnosis and treatment of Dissociative Disorders. If you have been losing time, feeling as though you are out of control of your actions, feeling "spaced" out, and are confused about what might be going on for you, we can figure it out together. We will work to form a personalized treatment plan that will process your experience in a safe and accepting environment. Your experiences are valid and most certainly real.
The latest offering that I have for my clients is therapy brought directly to you through a confidential video-chat platform. This means that you can now engage in the therapeutic work that you want to do without leaving the comfort of your own home. If you are located anywhere within the state of California, we can connect and take the first steps forward on your healing journey.
