Struggling with intrusive or disturbing thoughts? Do you struggle with repetitive actions that you feel you just can't stop? Feel like you're losing control or losing your mind?

Are you part of the LGBTQ+ community? Asexual, poly, or maybe not sure? I am part of the LGBTQ+ community and can help provide you a comfortable setting to explore your authentic self. I provide education about the community and work on identify affirmation. I have experience and training to write letters for those seeking transition.
I use exposure therapy for treating OCD, panic disorder, and some trauma. Exposure therapy is slowly pushing yourself to face your fears/anxieties to help re-gain control of your life. Instead of using avoidance, for things we fear or don't want to do, we slowly gain confidence to face them together.

Spiritual and religious trauma are often ignored in our society but can have a large impact on how we view relationships, intimacy, ourselves, and the world.
