Eli Ogburn Therapy, MSW, LCSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Seattle
Sometimes it is really hard to persist. Making change or accepting reality can be confusing. Reaching out to a therapist can be scary. With empathy and an anti-oppression approach, I can help you examine what's holding you back, listen for pieces of your story you may have forgotten, and support you in regaining self-confidence and perspective. I specialize in working people who move through the world differently: queer and trans folks, agender/asexual folks, poly & non-monogamous folks, neurodiverse folks especially HSPs (highly sensitive people), and others.
I offer EMDR for trauma recovery (all forms of trauma, however you define it), persistent anxiety/panic, and depression and DBT for managing intense emotions or self-harm and improving relationships. I am also invested in using EMDR to treat trans-specific issues including medical transitions.
I use informed consent (see http://www.icath.org/) with trans and gender nonconforming people, meaning I believe in self-identification. I enjoy working within the LGBTQI community but also have many clients who are not LGBTQI. I also work with people who are poly or in open relationships.
