About My Clients

Our goal at the collective is to provide a queer affirming, safe and intimate space for you to explore your inner world, bringing you closer to living your most authentic life. Each clinician brings their authentic self to each session allowing for an individualized, collaborative approach to treatment with a core belief that you are the expert in your own life. It is our belief that the most important part of therapy is the relationship between therapist and client.

My Background and Approach

The therapist will use evidence-based assessment tools and interventions to ensure they are providing you with a high level of care. Depending on the goals of the client, they may assign homework but this is dependent on the needs of the client. Progress often happens with work outside of therapy and in between sessions. The clinicians at Velvet Psychotherapy Collective are experienced in Psychodynamic theory, psychoanalytic theory, cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness, emotionally-focused therapy, and motivational interviewing. Through a trauma informed lens, we aim to help individuals and couples struggling with a variety of issues. These include substance use, relationships, intimacy, sexuality, and marginalized stress, to name a few. These life stressors affect each of us in unique ways, which is why we carefully tailor each person's treatment in a customized, individualized approach.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The founder of Velvet Psychotherapy Collective, Kelly Ghweinem, is a queer genderfluid person who feels passionate about bringing access to queer affirming therapy to folxs across many different states. Our goal is to provide therapy through an antiracist, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, and feminist lens. It is deeply important to the collective that we provide comprehensive psychotherapy with a focus on substance use, interpersonal relationships, and sexuality. All of our clinicians understand the need to practice in a manner that upholds the belief that mental health treatment needs to be decolonized and that the societal systems we participate in are oppressive and can be traumatizing to individuals.
