-Have you experienced a traumatic event? Are you suffering from lingering fear, anxiety or panic due to a series of traumatic events?  Do you feel like you no longer have any control over how you think, feel and behave?

-Do you re-live traumatic situations or have flashbacks that intrude on your waking hours?  Do you have disturbing dreams or nightmares?  These reminders may also trigger physical symptoms, such as heart palpitations or chills, or emotional problems like anxiety, depression, and feelings of dread.

-Do you avoid any reminders of the trauma,  or distance yourself from family and friends, or withdraw from everyday activities and things you used to enjoy?  If any of these symptoms resonate with you, you may have PTSD.  Perhaps you have been thinking about therapy for a very long time, but are just now looking for the help you know you need.  You are in the right place.  I use EMDR therapy to safely help you regain control over your life again.
 - Are you so stressed by insensitive questions about your gender identity and gender expression? Are you fed up with correcting others when they mis-gender you? Does the Gender Dysphoria hit you at your core leading to depression and anxiety?  You need a queer trans-affirming therapist who truly understands what you are going through.  Together we can look at how these brief, commonplace microaggressions impact you and your self confidence. I can help you wherever you are at in your journey to live a more congruent life, the life you have been dreaming about!  I can even write that letter you need!  I work from a model of Informed Consent, allowing you to make decisions about what to do with your body based on the most recent information available.  I am not a Gate Keeper.

- Are you feeling overwhelmed due to Caregiver Burnout? Are you trapped between caring for an elderly parent while trying to care for your own family as well? Does it feel like there is never enough time and you can't make anyone happy no matter how hard you try?  You Need Support (You Needed it Months Ago.)  What if you could talk to someone who really understands what you are saying, someone who listens, someone who asks the right questions? Someone who has the experience, skills, and expertise to collaborate with you so you can choose to change things, regaining a sense of control, and move forward in your life again.

Hi, my name is Lisabeth Wotherspoon, and I have experience helping people just like you deal with trauma, with transgender transitioning, and caregiver burnout. Call me today for a free 15-minute consultation to see if we might be a good fit.

Each 45-minute session is $190.  I provide you with a monthly invoice that you can submit to your insurance company.  I recommend using the Reimbursify app.  You simply take a picture of your invoice and submit it directly to the insurance company.  The first 5 claim submissions are free.
