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.
LGBTQ+ Couple's Therapy
I utilize an attachment based couples therapy modality called Imago Therapy with LGBTQ+ couples to guide them towards clearer and less activating communication.
EMDR allows for the brain's natural process of digesting memories to engage, that way traumatic memories and their impact on our bodies can be properly stored in the past. EMDR is clinically tested to be highly effective with trauma, OCD, addiction, and any negative beliefs that are holding us back.
Workshops & Supervision
I offer workshops on trauma, the nervous system, and LGBTQ+ competency to businesses and organzations.
As a supervisor, I am able to support other advanced therapists in their practices using an anti-oppressive approach.
My approach blends together EMDR, Polyvagal Theory, and Parts Work. I am interested in not only getting to know your story, but your parts and nervous system.
In EMDR, we can reprocess distressing memories and negative beliefs that are keeping you from living your fullest, most authentic life.
For the past 13 years, I have worked as a trauma therapist, sex educator, teacher, intake coordinator, and community organizer.
I specialize in treating trauma and PTSD for women, 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.
