Trauma & PTSD


Psychotherapy was born from observations of patients who had experienced trauma. Whether you complete depth-oriented treatment or a time-limited protocol, you can expect gentle and affirming care. Successful treatment results in a softening of one's relationship to their trauma narratives. Through co-existence with painful memories - rather than unhelpful instincts toward erasure - healing becomes possible.


Depression & Anxiety


Most people experience some extent of depression and anxiety in their lives. Beyond symptom reduction, treatment at Forge Psychology may assist patients with increasing meaning, fostering radical acknowledgement of circumstances, and finding empowerment to shift from fear-based decision-making.

Attachment & Relationships


Humans are fundamentally relationship-seeking. Through the psychotherapeutic relationship, you may expect to bolster your interpersonal effectiveness, build insights into your relationships (past and present), and navigate around impulses that steer you from the connections you desire.


Esteem & Narcissism


We live in the age of the self. Despite good intentions, personas we share with others often lead us from true fulfillment. It is common to find yourself struggling with low esteem and also to notice how often your ego gets in the way. Via treatment, you may co-construct a bedrock of esteem that is less susceptible to life's storms.

Life Adjustment


Change is one of life's only certainties. Whether you are coping with grief, attending a new school, or languishing in a job that has pulled you from your values, psychotherapy may support intentional movement into the next phase of your life.


Identity Development


Outside of our awareness, we internalize cultural messaging that coerces us into maintaining the status quo. Care at Forge Psychology is conducted within an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, and gender and sexuality-affirming framework. Mindful noticing of oppression may facilitate gentle movement toward congruence.

Substance Use


People often turn to substances as a way to cope with stress, manage difficult emotions, or escape from underlying issues (past or present).  Beyond supporting a patient’s substance use goals, via a harm reduction or abstinence approach depending on individual goals, treatment at Forge Psychology aims to assist patients in exploring the underlying factors contributing to their use, developing strategies to manage cravings and urges, and learning effective coping skills to navigate life's challenges without reliance on the effects of substances.
