Psychotherapy, Expressive Arts Therapy, EMDR, & Reiki, specializing in Queer, Gay, Bi, & Trans Individuals & Couples in San Francisco
Through the medicine of expressive arts therapy, the trauma-releasing benefits of EMDR, and the power of Reiki energy work, I can guide you to explore emotional pain and life suffering (especially grief, depression, social anxiety, & PTSD) as calls to action for learning new ways to accept yourself unconditionally by accessing the healing energy with which you were born.
It is normal for traumatic life events (such as near-death experiences, being the victim of violence, or the loss of a loved one) to cause us to become stuck in patterns that prevent us from exploring emotional pain in order to let go of it; in this way, staying stuck further perpetuates ongoing suffering, like a “snake eating its tail.” It can be even more challenging to explore and let go of this pain when we experience the complexities of social oppression and the unique demands that are faced in the life of queer, gay, bisexual, & transgender people.
I am here to support you with untangling these patterns in order to reclaim who you are and gain satisfaction with seeing how who you are can glow brighter than ever in your relationships and community.
No matter what you’ve been through, there is always hope for healing.
