Letter from the therapist at Peace Lane,
Hi! My name is Beth and my pronouns are she/her.
I offer a tailored approach through a person-centered lens using intersectional, feminist, polyvagal and queer theories as a foundation for therapeutic interventions. I have been trained in a variety of modalities and can apply or introduce many as necessary to facilitate healing.
On the whole, I limit my clients to ages 25 and up, specializing in aging, older adults, but can work with younger adults as well. Let's talk and see if I am good fit.
There are a number of aspects to the type of client that I may see. Let's work through them here and see if I can help you.
First and foremost, I provide an affirmative environment for all types of clients. I have extensive training in affirmative-based care to ensure that my clients are receiving the most effective treatment that they need. Specifically, I focus my training on the LGBTQIA+ aging community. However, this is not limited and translates to other communities as well.
I can also provide somatic trauma and grief/loss work where the client/family is brought to a place of understanding where trauma may reside inside the body. This is very specific work and takes several sessions to work through the sources of trauma and loss. I also would like to acknowledge that clients may also be experiencing symptoms of historical trauma. This is trauma based on familial or cultural history in which may be experienced in current times. Each client/family is different in experiencing symptoms of their own trauma and how they work through it. I will tailor the interventions to the needs of the client/family so that re-traumatization is minimized.
Because I focus on the aging community, I have extensive training and knowledge on neurodiverse and brain related diagnoses as well as a range of exposure to physical disabilities. I specialize in chronic illness, palliative care, near-death experiences and end-of-life experiences both with diagnosed patients and their caregivers. Additionally, I can work with those who experience loss and grief as a result of diagnoses, illness, or death. Additional types of trauma or loss may also be a good fit. I am open to discussing whether or not I can assist you on your mental health journey.
For couples, throuple families, polyamorous families, platonic partnerships, and many other family configurations like ethical non-monogamy (ENM), I offer affirmative care to help with navigating issues of maintenance of the relationships, friction or decisions that may be new to the family, and any other issues that may be causing a need for a therapist intervention. Decisions around next-of-kin, medical power of attorney, advanced directives, etc, can be assisted by a therapist intervention.
