LGBT Q is for Questioning
When it comes to your gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation and relationship preferences are you feeling...
Hesitant to embrace a particular label?
Welcome to Flower of Life Therapy!
Developing a connection with your inner healing voice involves a process that unfolds over a lifetime. Sometimes the parts of us that feel depressed, anxious, or traumatized take over, and drown out that inner wise part that already knows what we need for healing.
I can help you rebuild a connection with the healing capacity that you already have inside if you. I can also help you explore how the intersections of society, culture, and family have impacted that connection to yourself, so that you can discover the true you- the you who has always been there, waiting to be revealed.
Many people experience their identity as fluid and changing over time, but these changes can sometimes be scary to explore alone and can lead to isolation, depression and anxiety. I can help you manage these experiences so that you can connect to your true self. Connecting with your true self can lead to deeper, more intimate, more satisfying relationships with others. The world is waiting for your unique brand of rainbow!
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and I studied Counseling Psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) with a specialization in Somatic Psychotherapy. Much of my ten years in the field has been spent with supporting folks in marginalized communities in various Community Mental Health settings. I have also spent several years working with diverse youth ages 10-18, helping them gain acceptance and understanding of who they are, while developing practical life skills.
I am also passionate about keeping up to date with developments in the field and I participate in several ongoing consultation groups where I receive feedback on my work from colleagues and mentors, while keeping identifying information strictly confidential.
I also have a certification from the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) in MDMA Assisted Psychotherapy (not currently legal or available outside of FDA approved studies for now!) and am Level One certified by the Internal Family Systems Institute (read more about IFS in the "Approaches" tab!
