You are 100% deserving of support and are more than just a list of symptoms.
As a queer therapist, I specialize in working with LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, nonbinary, trans, gender queer, etc.) people, who are feeling dissatisfied, overwhelmed, and unhappy in their lives and relationships.
Sexuality and gender identity is not just about who you sleep with or your gender. It is a way of being human – a unique way of relating to others and experiencing the world. Therapy is about exploring your whole, authentic self, and part of that is sexuality and gender. You deserve a therapist who knows why pronouns matter, what femme invisibility is, and why bi-phobia is so hurtful.
Are you and your partner stuck in cycles of conflict in your relationship? Is your communication not working? I help couples learn to slow down and understand the difficult feelings that relationships bring up so that instead of getting caught in the same old patterns and habits in your relationship you can stay connected.
Imagine a life without racing thoughts, worry, a pounding heart, or dread. Therapy gives you a way of safely exploring and tending to your anxiety so it no longer controls your life. While problem-focused methods of therapy and self-help look at anxiety as a symptom to fix, they don’t address the deeply held beliefs and fears that fuel anxiety; thus, anxiety often returns. Together we will tame your anxiety and as we do, you will find that it no longer has power over you.
When you are in a codependent relationships, you can lose sight of yourself. Your needs become secondary to the needs of other people. Living free of codependency means taking back control of your life. It means learning to love and care for yourself, without relying on someone else to do it for you. But most importantly, it means learning to put your own needs first. When you can do that, you will finally be free to live your life the way you want to.
I’m Miriam (she/her), an online LGBTQ+ therapist practicing in California and Illinois.
Since 2013 I’ve been helping LGBTQ+ people overcome their challenges and lead fulfilling lives.
