I am an openly bi/queer-identified psychotherapist with a private practice in downtown Seattle. I work with people who experience themselves as outsiders to the dominant culture: creative artists, performers, activists, LGBTQ, and gender-nonconforming folks, and anyone else who feels “other” due to cultural or family bias. My approach is trauma-informed, anti-oppression-focused, social-justice oriented and politicized. I have provided trainings on affirmative care for LGBTQ children and youth for Cascadia Training, The Saying it Out Loud Conference and Gender Odyssey, and I served on the Advisory Board on the Children’s Hospital Gender Clinic from 2016 -2018. Most recently I have decided to devote more time to supporting fellow bisexuals with their mental health and have started training other clinicians on best practices for working with bisexual clients (for more information on my trainings, go to: http://www.christinamalecka.com/workshops/2019/1/27/so-youre-straight-now-clinical-considerations-for-working-with-bipansexual-clients).
I am trained extensively in LGBTQ health issues, intimate partner violence, adoption and trauma, and practice EMDR and Attachment-Focused EMDR. I work with individual clients age 13 and up and I am available for consultation with other therapists. For more about my work, go to my website at [email protected].
