"Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know."
MERANI RIVAROLA, LICENSED MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPIST
Life can be painful, and it can be hard to know where to turn when we feel like we’ve exhausted all our options. Wherever you are hurting, whether it be in family relationships, romantic relationships, your relationship with yourself, or your relationship with the world around you, I’m here to help you find the wound and learn how to heal it. I am passionate about working with LGBTQ+ individuals, couples, and families to ensure everyone has access to getting the care and support they deserve.
I know how difficult it can be to find an affirming, celebratory space for marginalized folx and strive to offer that for my clients. I also am passionate about working with people who have experienced trauma, particularly developmental and relational trauma. The groundwork for the rest of our lives is set in childhood, and understanding how our early years are impacting us in the present can be life-changing work. As a therapist, I believe my role is to be your biggest cheerleader, walking alongside you as you dig deep into yourself. I utilize an emotion-focused lens to help you understand the role and impact your emotions have on you. Together, we will work on establishing a secure sense of self, become more comfortable experiencing all emotions, and develop secure attachments to the people in your life.
Whether you are an individual looking for support or a couple working through relationship challenges, I am here to provide compassion and guidance. Together, we can navigate the path towards self-acceptance, healthier relationships, and a more fulfilling life.
I currently accept private pay, offer a sliding scale, and the following insurances:
