  • “Tell me, what is it you plan to do
    with your one wild and precious life?”
    ― Mary Oliver

    In French, APPUI Means: SUPPORT
    I am here to Support You through life’s challenges

    We all embark on the journey of life from different starting points, and carrying different loads. We travel down the road before us, trying to carve out paths that will lead us to the kind of life that will bring us joy. However, there are times when that path leads us off course, and into the scarily unexpected. Although daunting, these moments can be opportunities for growth, and for grappling with important existential challenges. That’s when therapy can help.

    Whether you’re stuck in the woods of anxiety & depression, complex trauma, or racism, sexism, and heterosexism, it is possible to get back on track. I know it may feel impossible now, but that is why you are here.

    “The future must no longer be determined by the past. I do not deny that the effects of the past are still with us. But I refuse to strengthen them by repeating them.”

    — Hélène Cixous, The Laugh of the Medusa, translated by Keith Cohen and Paula Cohen

    You may be an artist. You may be an academic. You may be an activist. I have been all three of these–I speak their languages, and I know their stories. Whether you’re building a dream, a movement, a family, a new future, or just beginning to pick up the pieces of your life, Appui Therapy is here to support you every step of the way, with a long-term focus on liberation for your mind and body.

    Especially in this time of upheaval and unrest, you may be hurting–feeling lost, adrift, burned out, under- or over-stimulated, or simply sad. I am here to connect with you. To listen compassionately. To make space for you to better hear yourself, and to encourage linkages, mentalizations, and trauma metabolizations that will allow you to better attend to the rhythms of your body and to use your own mind. I offer you my mind in this pursuit.

    At Appui Therapy, I will work with you to help you develop the strategies you need to liberate yourself from whatever limits you. Together, we will analyze the struggles you are facing, looking at their underlying causes, and seeking to change the behaviors and thought patterns that are keeping you from being the person you want to be, so that you can make your way out of those woods–confident and ready to take on a new direction in life.

    If you’re ready to get back on the path that leads to a life more aligned with your identities and ideals, then you’ve come to the right place. Contact me today, so we can work together to get you back on course.
