“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

James Baldwin

As a psychologist, I have expertise in the treatment of mood, anxiety, and trauma-related disorders. I use an integrative approach that is, overall, person-centered, radically genuine, and intersectional (e.g., explore how your race, gender, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, age, etc. impact your current issues).

I challenge you to be the most values driven version of yourself through empathetic listening, warmth, and authenticity. I model expressing yourself in a genuine way by laughing with you, and even shedding a tear with you. I will assign you work outside of session to guide you toward your goals while also being willing to adjust plans as needed. This is a safe, open, and complicated space meant to engender reflection and growth.

If you are currently feeling in crisis and need to speak with a provider within a few minutes in order to remain safe, we encourage you to use the resources listed at the bottom of this page to speak with a supportive person more quickly. V.I.A. providers are not available at all hours and cannot provide crisis care.

If you or a loved one is in immediate danger, call 911. As suggested by the National Alliance on Mental Illness, notify the operator that it is a psychiatric emergency and ask for an officer trained in crisis intervention.

Dr. Thelemaque can help with any number of issues.
