I enjoy working together to overcome oppression & help you to thrive. I often work with people in D/s relationships, non-binary folks, sex workers, & autistic people. I have 20 years of international experience in Anti-Oppressive Practice. I am a Full Clinical PACFA Registrant, an AAFT-registered Clinical Family Therapist, and an AAFT-accredited Clinical Supervisor. I am recognised by Pink Therapy as an Advanced Accredited Gender, Sex, & Relationship Diversities Therapist (AAGSRDT). I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Level II: Complex Trauma & Dissociation (CCTP-II) & Certified Family Trauma Professional (CFTP).
Family, relationship, polycule, & solo (just you) sessions available. I am knowledgeable & affirming about trauma, trans &/or non-binary experiences, Autistic/aspie neurodiversity, BDSM/consensual kink, bi/pan and asexual/ace spectrum erasure, chronic pain, D/s relationship dynamics, furries, mixed mono/polyamorous partners, Otherkin, colonialism, & racism.
I understand that who you are contains many stories and life experiences; you are not just identity labels or psychiatric diagnoses. I help you to figure out what works best for you. Helping you to take your own path in life is a form of social justice. I offer 50, 80, & 110 min sessions and half-day intensives available by distance worldwide.
