LGBTQIA Affirmative Therapy:

Affirmative Therapy supports all LGBTQIA identities and relationships, as well as the negative influences that support homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism. As each person has a unique story related to their personal discovery and disclosure of their sexual orientation or gender identity, I am passionate about offering dignity and respect in a compassionate and affirmative space. It is my hope to strive for social justice and change by challenging heterosexism and the gender binary biases , including affirming language on all paperwork and in session.
 
If you reside in CA or in GA,  please feel free to reach out and we can discuss if this therapy would be the best fit for you.

FAQ

I have never been to therapy before what do I expect?  Many come to therapy to learn new ways of thinking, manage anxiety, depression, stress, or learn ways to create change in ways to find fulfillment in life again. I honor that coming to a complete stranger to discuss life’s challenges may seem daunting. I am here to compassionately meet you where you are at by providing a safe, supportive space. Together we can explore ineffective patterns, and work on strengthening coping , communication, problem solving skills, self compassion, as well as ways to deepen relationships for lasting change

What is a Marriage and Family Therapist ( MFT)? MFTs are highly trained mental health professionals who bring relational perspectives to health care. They evaluate and treat mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders with individual, couples, and family counseling, as well as assist with group therapy. A MFT’s role is not to advise you on decisions, but instead assist you in finding your own path. 

Can you see individuals as a MFT?  Yes!  MFTs absolutely may see individuals with all facets of issues. This is not an uncommon concern that we hear over and over again due to the confusion of the name and our licensing umbrella .
