Unique Therapy for Unique People
The Therapy Guild
A mental health therapy practice dedicated to providing quality individual and group therapy to people from marginalized communities.
LGBTQIA+ folks are at higher risk of a slew of mental health, and physical health issues, often stemming from other people’s bias and discrimination of their gender identity and/or sexuality. I strive to create an inclusive, strength based space for people to bravely explore their identities, and cope with the adversity they are facing.
Neurodivergent individuals are at greater risk of experiencing anxiety, depression, alienation, feelings of incompetence, and other long term effects. I provide neurodivergent affirming, and trauma-informed care to help mitigate these risks. I partner with my neurodivergent clients to help them unlearn the harmful beliefs they have been taught about their differences, and help them reach their goals.
Traumatic events happen every day to good people. Sometimes these things happen and the person who experienced it doesn’t have many lingering issues. But other times it causes long lasting difficulties such as mistrust, fear, sleep problems, irritability, panic attacks, and other symptoms.
How I can help you
At TTG we provide individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults struggling with trauma, depression, and anxiety. We are committed to working with people who have experienced bias and discrimination related to their identity, whether they are LGBTQIA+, Neurodivergent, and/or people of color.
We periodically run mutual aid, psycho-educational, and support groups for adults and teens. These include tabletop role playing games for teens that struggle with executive functioning, or social skills, and mutual aid and support groups for adults with ADHD or that at LGBTQIA+.
Professional supervision is available for LCSWs looking to become independently licensed, as well as for LICSWs looking for guidance as they develop their practice. Halley specializes in utilizing a feminist, trauma-informed lens.
An affirming therapist can make all the difference.
About Halley Palmer, LICSW
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Massachusetts.
I specialize in working with people who struggle to fit in, whether it be at work, school, or their community. Maybe it’s because of their sexuality, the color of their skin, or their interests are just different and misunderstood by others. I especially enjoy working with LGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and neurodivergent folks.
I utilize a number of evidenced-based practices, such as TF-CBT and ARC, to help my clients reduce distressing symptoms related specifically to trauma, stress, depression, and ADHD.
I take particular care to learn about your experiences, motivations, and strengths to best inform my work with you.
