As a former Broadway performer in Manhattan, I know first-hand the exhilaration and struggle that is a part of any competitive field.

A career in the performing arts is at once glamorized and undervalued. Unlike many other professions, there is no clear-cut path to success. Those who choose to pursue the arts, on-stage or off, have to be especially resilient. Kingfisher Therapy can assist you to bring forth diverse forms of expression and tap back into your creativity.

Catering to the unique needs of performers is important because of the psychological, biological and social stressors related to this vocation.

Kingfisher Therapy: Dive Deep to Fly Higher

The Greek name for Kingfisher is halcyon, leading to the term “halcyon days”. Originally a reference to calm and fine weather, the phrase is now used to remember fond memories. By “Diving Deep,” you will tap into your innate tranquility and soar higher than ever before.

“Calling in” to make Change

Finding a safe space to sit with the discomfort of our pain and privilege is necessary for healing. By listening more carefully to the mistakes we make and bravely asking difficult questions, we can connect to one another’s humanity and learn through conversational empathy. “Calling in” is the practice of connecting to our common humanity, while acknowledging racist, misogynist, homophobic, classist, and ablest slights. Working with a therapist who embraces anti-racist practices, promises that both of us will be in an open and vulnerable dialogue. While it may feel scary to do so, building trust with your therapist opens the possibility of leaning into discomfort and taking risks in life. This, in turn, increases the potential to be a voice of change towards a larger collective healing.

The Plight of the Individual in the Modern World

An individualistic society preaches that the individual and their achievements are everything. But, as Balzac once said, “Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell you solitude is fine.” With our world becoming more and more divided, many feel that they have no one to confide in, or that they are burdening their friends and loved ones by desiring more connectedness. Research shows that issues such as anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem often result from social isolation and loneliness Therapy can provide a space to work through the pain of being human in our technological age, generating a positive feedback loop of social, emotional and physical well-being that reaches far beyond the therapy room.

Feminist theory isn’t just for women!

Feminism is among the oldest Western political movements, beginning in 1792 with Mary Wollstonecraft’s “Vindication of the Rights of Woman.” Feminist theory challenges the archaic patriarchal power structures that subjugate us all, cis men included, alienating us from the warmth and care we need to thrive. We are all victims of inherited narratives, whether from our family of origin or larger cultural and societal norms. There is much to gain from deconstructing societal norms that stifle our spirit. Narrative Therapy focuses on this exploration through collaboration in our sessions—you will be the expert on your lived experience! Our journey will be to uplift your own self-worth through the discovery of personal accounts that casts you as the protagonist in the chronicle of your own life.

What exactly is Harm Reduction?

The societal stigma surrounding addictive behaviors, whether alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, work, or a variety of different issues, often prevents people from receiving care. For many, these habits are a mask for the pain folks feel from the trauma of being human. Harm Reduction practitioners “meet the client where they are” and hold a non-judgmental attitude to compulsive behaviors. Utilizing practical skill-building and mindfulness exercises in a collaborative, safe, supportive space can help explore whether less harmful use or abstinence is best suited for you.

LGBTQIA2s+

Queer and questioning individuals have their own unique stressors due to their marginalized position in the larger heteronomative and patriarchal world. Working with a therapist who identifies as a member of the queer community means that a short-hand is already established. Although a person’s sexual orientation, gender expression or identity may not be the primary purpose of therapy, affirming mental health care to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities means celebrating the uniqueness of you–no matter where you are on your journey of discovery. Now that’s what I call the Gay Agenda!

The multi-cultural couple

The joining of two individuals in a relationship is one of life’s delights. It can also be a recipe for misunderstandings and the clashing of cultures. And sometimes with opinions from family… well, there are only so many cooks you can have in one kitchen! Whether you and your partner come from families with similar or different racial, ethnic, religious or financial backgrounds, thoughtfully interweaving inherited family belief systems is a journey towards greater relational contentment.

Couples therapy can be useful in times of crisis, growth or infidelity. But, couples who feel stable can also benefit from exploring their differences and commonalities, to find a stronger sense of collaboration and empathy. Through premarital counseling or the deepening of relational commitment. In essence, all relationships may benefit from supported expression and guided introspection.

Fertility and Family Expansion

Future family cohesion begins before conception. Expanding a family with the addition of children, whether biologically, through IVF, surrogacy or adoption, is viewed as a rite of passage for many adults. But this is a multi-layered decision in our modern era. More and more young people are choosing not to have children, or are unable to do so because of biological or situational challenges. This upset in tradition can often cause shame, anger, and sadness surrounding this stage of life. The emotional turmoil and stress of bringing life into the world can erode even the healthiest of relationships. With so much unknown and few guarantees, carving out space to process the myriad of emotions that may be unearthed can make for a more grounded and connected experience. By preemptively navigating the nuances of parenthood you are setting up your family for future success.

“So I think I want to open up my relationship…”

“….but isn’t that cheating?” The ideal of a monogamous couple has pervaded Western society for centuries, even though consensual non-monogamy has existed in a variety of cultures, ethnicities, and sexualities. According to the 2012 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behaviors, approximately 4% of American couples engage in consensual non-Monogamy, as great as the number of Americans who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and/or Trans. Trends show that more and more people are beginning to explore consensual non-monogamy, but often lack the language and skills to manage a new relational paradigm. When communication breaks down, heartbreak and strife ensue. A non-judgmental trained relational therapist can help guide you and your partner(s) through conscious conversations on your journey toward ethical non-monogamy
