Gillian Goldberg

MSW, LSW
Psychotherapist

As a therapist, Gillian is collaborative, intuitive, and seeks to hold an authentic and courageous therapeutic space where clients can explore how their past informs their present experiences. She believes that therapy can be a powerful place to name and process trauma, grief, and loss, explore identities, histories, dreams, and fears, and practice freedom and liberation.

 

She has experience in individual and group therapy with queer and trans people, activists, organizers, emerging adults, neurodivergent people, and people who hear voices and see visions. Gillian’s approach is led by commitments to racial and economic justice, anti-oppressive practice, abolition, and her continuing study of somatic-based therapy techniques.
