I like helping people know that it's okay to feel angry.
And sad. And hurt. And Afraid.
I'm not an "uh huh" therapist but one who likes to have an honest to god conversation with you.
I talk about anger and sex and relationships quite a bit. I'm comfortable is addressing these topics and how spirituality has/can impact one's life.
As cliche as it sounds, I do like helping people. I bring an independent, "high involvement/non-attachment" attitude, meaning that I only have a bias towards helping you. If we try one way and it doesn't work, let's set that aside or toss it all together and find what does work. What I like about my work is that my clients seem to feel "refreshed" that I'm not the "uh huh" type of therapist.

You can email me. I'll try & get back to you within a day. I'll ask that we chat on the phone first and try and set up some good times to talk.
You can call me. I actually answer the phone and will talk (if I'm available to talk--sometimes people call me and I'm in the grocery. I'll tell you, hey, I'm in the grocery, can I call you back?). If I don't have time, I'll let you know, and we can set up a time to briefly talk about what's happening.
I'm an MFT. It means Marriage and Family Therapist and it also means Psychotherapist. It means I've been trained in a bunch of different modalities an have a good deal of education under my belt. Being in the field for 10+ years, means I have real world experience and education under my belt.
I'm certified in Anger Management. I'm on the Los Angeles County list as a Provider for mandated Anger Management Programs. This might be important to you, maybe not! But I work well with anger and anger related issues.
Call and talk with the therapist first. If you get a good vibe from them and connect with them, that's much more important than can the therapist take insurance or where the therapist is. It's not saying that insurance and geography aren't important, it's saying that you've got to be able to trust your therapist so you can make authentic movement towards a resolution that you're seeking.
