Hi, I’m Eli, I’m 13 years old and I’m Bisexual. I’ve recently came out to only a handful of my best friends about two weeks ago and so far it’s been a hell of a journey. Since I was able to think, eat, speak, and go to school I’ve always knew girls weren’t the only thing I was attracted too. There use to be guys and other boys older than me and my age that I always found appealing, and I found it hard as my family weren’t “accepting” to gays. Even though my uncle is gay and married they always made fun of, critizised, and talked shit about gay people. Even when I was little of the age of 6 I was told “No son of mine is going to be gay! You here me?” I hated it because I knew something was different about me. Before I knew the term bisexual, I always thought there was only straight or gay. I use to ask god why am I like this or asked if he could fix me even though I’m not a religious person. When I hit 5th grade I really started to have anxiety and depression because of my sexual orientation. I ended up crying myself to sleep and when I didn’t I had insomnia, even to this day I still do but not as much as before. Since I’m not the kind of person to express my feelings or my emotions I bottle everything up and it just makes things worse. When it comes out it’s comes out like a dam breaking and all the water coming out. I would have outburst at 2 or 3 in the morning and cry myself back to bed. Even though I was younger I had thoughts of suicide or self harm, I felt so lonely and so lost in the world. Even now I still do but honestly I feel as if it’s gotten worse. Even though I still suffer with depression and anxiety I do think I’ve made tons of profress. For one I actually came out to my friends, last year this seemed like a impossible task. And two Im actually embracing my sexuality and truly accepting myself. The only struggle other than depression is my love life, even though I’m young there’s no denying that I can’t have a relationship. There’s a guy I really really like at school named Joel and he is just honestly the best. I mean he makes me so happy and I get really nervous around him. I feel like a better me. I get so nervous when I hang with him and I continue to get attached. I feel if he actually might like me but he hasn’t come out, I just want to tell him everything and confess, but again I get so much anxiety I can’t. I feel so tangled up in everything it’s so much to handle. Anyway… this is all I’m going to talk about for right now, but I should update more.

Trauma, anxiety, depression, fear, low self esteem- these experiences and feelings are more common than we think. Many times, we are expected to suppress our emotions and we get by dissociating (or ignoring) the things that are hurting us, the unresolved stuff we have grown so afraid of addressing and shedding light on. I believe in meeting my clients where they are in this delicate journey--growing and creating together. It's important to me that everyone has their own individualized plan on what they feel is effective, helpful, and healing for them. I am a guide, an ally, and a professional- but you are the expert in your life. Together, we navigate your healing process and what it means for you.
With many years of experience, I bring an eclectic, interactive approach to therapy. We each have a unique lens as to how we see the world, as well as how we see ourselves in relationships. I believe that I honor these different perspectives. My style is guided by our conversation. I listen for underlying patterns of behavior. This shapes my perceptions as to what interventions will be most beneficial. I strive to create a relaxed atmosphere.
My therapeutic style is collaborative, authentic, compassionate and client-centered. I am committed to providing the highest quality of care. I provide a safe, caring and nonjudgmental environment that centers on client needs. Each therapy session promotes personal growth and success!

Making the decision to come to therapy can be hard, especially when it's hard to make yourself do much of anything. When there are days you can hardly get yourself out of bed in the morning. When you're caught between wanting someone there to keep you company but not wanting to answer questions about yourself. Because you feel embarrassed or even ashamed that life feels so challenging for you when it seems to come so easily to everyone else. You've known for a while - maybe a long time - that you want things to be different. You want to feel truly excited again, like you have things to look forward to. You want to feel confident - like you're the one driving your own life. Together, we can figure out how you got here - wherever "here" is for you - and how you can get unstuck from that, so you can start moving toward the life you dream about. I'd love to help you get there.
