Individual Psychotherapy: Famous Quote

Individual Psychotherapy

Are you feeling overwhelmed or exhausted by life's endless stressors?

Facing a crossroads?

Looking for therapist with both professional and lived experience?

​My name is Lotus and I may be able to help. I am licensed therapist offering remote/tele-health services to California residents (10+ years old). My practice is culturally responsive, trauma informed and rooted in social justice.

I offer a holistic clinical experience that fuses evidence-based mental health practices (such as psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) with intuitive forms of healing (such as meditation, ancestral work and art) to honor and heal the mind, body and Spirit.

As your therapist, I aim to function as a guide to identify the root causes of your suffering and develop the clarity and skills needed to build a healthy, fulfilling life. Even while navigating multiple forms of stress, transition, violence and oppression, it is possible to heal from trauma and thrive.

My clinical training and experience includes:​

• Gender diversity, Gender Dysphoria and Gender Affirming Care

• PTSD and complex trauma

• depression, self harm, suicidal ideation and hx of suicide attempt(s)

• general anxiety, social anxiety and panic disorders

• Eating and Feeding Disorders

• neurodivergence including Autism Spectrum and ADHD/ADD

• substance use, harm reduction, recovery and 12-step

• chronic illness and pain

• caregiver stress, including parents and loved ones of those struggling with mental health conditions

• work and/or academic stress

• cultural and racial stress

• family of origin and relationship issues

• religious and spiritual issues

• intimacy and sexual concerns

• consensual and ethical non-monogamy, polyamory and open relationships

• BDSM and kink

• Multiplicity and Plurality

Please note that my priority is to support you in your healing journey. If I am not able to offer you what you need, I hope to refer you to a trusted, experienced colleague that may be a better fit.

I have extensive experience producing effective Gender Affirming Care Letters of Support for:

• Puberty Blockers

• Hormone Replacement Therapy

• Breast Augmentation

• Chest Masculinization Surgery

• Gender-Affirming Facial Surgery

• Gender-Affirming Body Contouring

• Orchiectomy

• Hysterectomy

• Genital Surgeries, including various configurations of Metoidioplasty, Phalloplasty, Vaginoplasty.

On-going therapy is not required to work with me for Letters of Support. I do offer short-term counseling to aid in the decision-making process involved with gender affirming surgeries and on-going therapy for those who are interested.
