Andrea Gutiérrez-Glik, LCSW
Therapist, Writer, & Supervisor
No matter what we have experienced in life, we all have an inherent capacity to heal. We can feel connected to ourselves and come home to our bodies. Healing is possible. You can inhabit your own life. Your life is yours.
In my work with partnerships of all kinds, we will explore how childhood, life experiences and past relationship pain show up in the present. I offer concrete tools and exercises to heal and expand intimacy, communication and desire.
Trainings & Workshops
I offer trainings and workshops for clinicians, healers, those on their healing journey, as well as organizations and businesses. My trainings cover topics such as trauma, somatic coaching, gender, and sexuality.
Coaching & Supervision
As a career coach, I guide therapists on their path through concrete information on building a practice, reaching clients, and unpacking imposter syndrome. As a supervisor, I am able to support other advanced therapists in their practices using an anti-oppressive approach.
My approach is rooted in the Polyvagal Theory, and blends together body based Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Parts Work, and more traditional, cognitive therapies of CBT and psychodynamics. I am interested in not only getting to know your story, but your body and where it experiences safety & danger, as well as the parts of you that have been abandoned, or serve to protect those abanonned parts. Together we will unpack core beliefs about yourself and discover where and who you learned them from, how they have impacted your body, and other ways of thinking and feeling about yourself and the world around you that come from a true self.
For the past 12 years, I have worked as a trauma therapist, sex educator, teacher, intake coordinator, and community organizer.
I specialize in treating trauma and PTSD for queer & trans folks, using body based and feminist therapy practices to help clients come home to themselves. Currently, I practice online, and live on stolen & occupied Osage & Sioux native land.
