Dr. Quenzel specializes in treating minoritized individuals, specifically the LGBTQIA+ and gender diverse populations. She also specializes in working with individuals struggling with college concerns, life changes, academic issues, relationship concerns, family issues, problems with self-esteem, identity development, and anxiety/depression. Dr. Quenzel’s goal is to collaborate with clients on their needs and develop realistic goals, while creating a space that feels comfortable enough for clients to open up and explore themselves and their concerns honestly and authentically. She believes that in order for us to work through our struggles, we sometimes need another person to bear witness to our experiences. We are social beings and can't do everything alone! Dr. Quenzel approaches therapy through a relational/interpersonal lens with a multicultural focus. Her goal is to see you for who you are and to incorporate aspects of your life experiences, identities, and worldview in a way that feels right for you. She often incorporates interventions from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, too.
Dr. Quenzel also offers comprehensive psychological assessments and evaluations for adolescents and adults in order to help clarify diagnoses, individual strengths and weaknesses, and recommendations to best support clients based on their unique needs.
