LGBTQ+ Bay Area Psychotherapist,
Miriam Geiger (she/her)

Welcome, the healing starts here.

As a queer therapist, I specialize in working with LGBTQ+ (lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, nonbinary, trans, gender queer, etc.) humans, who are feeling anxious, dissatisfied, overwhelmed and “stuck” in their lives.

I understand what it’s like to grow up in a hetero-normative world. I know the challenges of existing in a space where you don’t always feel welcomed.

I also know that you have managed it really, really well. And sometimes the hurt, anger, fear or any other plethora of emotions controls your behavior and causes cycles of pain you would much rather see end.

My approach blends giving you concrete coping strategies for immediate relief from current issues (such as a global pandemic…) so we go deep and tend to older wounds related to your family-of-origin and internalized “isms” that make it so hard to love yourself fully and feel like you deserve to have the life you are longing for.

We’ll work together to understand what makes you unique and how to change patterns that no longer serve you. We’ll get to the root of your challenging emotions and relationships so that you can heal them, understand them, or let them go.

I’m here to tell you that you are 100% deserving of support and so much more than just a list of trauma or symptoms.

My Specialities:

LGBTQ Therapy

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. I have extensive training and experience working with the LGBTQ+ community, and I am always pursuing the latest research in sexuality, gender, and mental health. I am able to provide clients with letters in support of services when seeking gender affirming medical interventions.

Therapy for Anxiety

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, but 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.

Therapy for Empaths & Highly Sensitive People

Empaths and highly sensitive people are amazingly intuitive and have a vast capacity for deep feeling and creativity. However, it can also be hard for you to set boundaries, focus on your own needs first, and let go of shame and guilt that come with be told you are "too much" or "overly sensitive." I help my sensitive clients learn to develop and maximize their gifts while finding ways of coping with overwhelm and detaching from the energies and emotions they pick up from others.

Therapy for Relationship Issues

We often repeat old patterns and habits in relationships, even when we know they don't work for us. I help my clients learn to stay with the difficult feelings that relationships bring up so they can change the patterns that have kept them from having the relationships they long for. This powerful healing allows you to understand and express yourself fully and authentically so you can have more of what you want in your relationships.

Therapy for Developing Spirituality and Intuition

Often the things that hold us back in our personal lives can be blocks to further developing spirituality and intuition. By incorporating spiritual and intuitive practices with my clients who wish to, they are able to deepen both personal and spiritual insight, leading to profound realizations and change. Therapy for Intuition can help you discern what your intuitive voice sounds like admits all the noise.
