ONLINE THERAPY for CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

 

Welcome! I'm Myles and I'm a queer and trans therapist and educator in Long Beach, CA.

I believe that it's a miracle the first time someone enters the room for therapy.

There are often so many barriers that have to be overcome just to cross that threshold. You've done so much to get there and you deserve to be met with care, to be truly heard, and to be seen for who you are. 
 

My role as a therapist is to collaborate with you. I bring my skills and experience, but you are the expert on your own life. I believe in your strength and resilience and I'm here to help you reach your goals. 

 

Maybe your goal is to make sense of traumatic experiences, to build more connection in your life, to explore your own identity, to understand yourself better, or simply to get through the hard times in one piece. Whatever your focus is, I'm here and ready to work beside you on this journey. 

I encourage you to explore my page. If it strikes a chord with you, please feel free to reach out.

I am a queer and trans therapist committed to providing trauma-informed care.  I work with the frameworks of neurodiversity, fat liberation, HAES (Health at Every size), and disability justice.  

 

Many of my clients come to me because they need a provider who is LGBTQIA-affirming, kink and polyamory aware, and sex worker-friendly. If you’re a member of any of these communities, you know how challenging it can be to find a therapist who truly “gets it”.

 

I offer an environment where all of these parts of you can be welcomed, seen, and appreciated. This frees you up to be your most authentic self in our work together, and for us to focus on what matters most to you in therapy.
