Sheila Addison

Marriage and Family Therapist LMFT 49616
I have been working with clients from diverse cultural, sexual, and gender identities, as well as diverse body sizes, for more than 20 years. I can help with all kinds of relationship issues, including managing conflict, setting boundaries, resolving problems more effectively, and creating greater emotional closeness and satisfaction. I have published articles and book chapters about working with all kinds of LGBTQ+ relationships. Couple therapy is one of my specialities; I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy, and am in the process of becoming certified in Gottman Method Couple Therapy. I can help address sexual issues in intimate relationships as well, including kink/BDSM relationships and non-monogamous relationships. I am experienced with relational and sexual issues that come up around transition/gender affirmation processes. I work with issues of weight and body image from a weight neutral, Health at Every Size (r) approach. My approach is active, engaging, and warm. My office is wheelchair-accessible. I do not have a sliding scale but do reserve a limited number of appointments for reduced-fee clients. I also typically have at least one post-graduate associate in my practice who may have space for lower-fee clients.
