I am a kink /BDSM-aware and CNM/poly, LGBTQI+ supportive therapist.
Often, relationships begin with some expectations. However, as your relationship progresses, your desires, attractions, and needs change. This is very common. As a result, you may experience problems such as losing the spark (New Relationship Energy), infidelity, monogamy/nonmonogamy, communicating your needs, or you may be experiencing sexual problems. These issues can affect you and your relationship negatively. Likewise, unresolved trauma can affect your relationship with yourself, your partner(s) and sex. In addition, I work with refugees and newcomers who have fled violence and persecution.

I am also kink and poly informed, and affirmative.
Becoming a therapist has been an intentional journey that is the direct result of a desire to collaboratively facilitate healing in myself and others. It is difficult to be in the world right now and the impending fear and anxiety around us can contribute to feelings of overwhelm and a sense of disconnect from ourselves and others. This might have us feeling hopeless, isolated or 'stuck'. Our work together will foster the resilience and self-compassion needed to weather these storms and to recognize and celebrate the wisdom found in the struggle.

Have you been feeling lost, or unsure how to move forward? Perhaps you have noticed an increase in anxiety, leaving you feeling paralyzed or overwhelmed by your thoughts. Maybe you have been struggling with daily tasks such as eating or cleaning, or feeling like you can't get out of bed. Some experiences in life can hit so hard, it feels impossible to move.

Do you feel like you and your partner have the same argument over and over without any resolution? You are not alone. Most of the couples that come to see me talk about being stuck in this way. My job is to help you connect with your partner in meaningful way so that the two of you start to have different conversations than the ones you do at home. I also offer sex therapy. Whether you are an individual or couple, part of a monogamous or open relationship I offer a safe, non- judgemental, confidential space for you to share your experience.

Suffering is an inherent part of the human experience. However, we often feel that we are alone in our suffering, that no one can relate to our experiences, or that we don’t deserve to find peace in our lives. This can create feelings of frustration and despair, and we begin to feel stuck, unable to connect with others. Fear of judgement, along with our vulnerabilities can keep us from reaching out when we need it the most. I am confident that every person holds an innate understanding of what they need to heal and grow. Grounded in compassion, humility, and curiosity, my aim is to co-create a safe, open space for self-exploration.

Elevate your mind! Oftentimes, we experience stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, grief, abuse and other mental health issues that may seem insurmountable. If left unchecked could lead to tremendous loss in quality of life, wellness and happiness. The first and most important step towards regaining control is to seek help. I utilize my training and experience when working with individuals, couples and families presenting with varying issues. My ultimate aim in this therapeutic process is to provide the tools and techniques to inspire, improve, enhance, encourage, express, educate, understand and support you.

NOTE: I am not able to provide services to new clients at this time. - - - - - - - - I help those with low self-esteem, PTSD or relationship trauma to prioritize their needs, befriend their emotions, and find their inner voice. I strive not to hide behind a facade of professionalism, authority, or rigid treatments — I greatly value authenticity and aim always to be real with my clients. I have seen first-hand how individuals flourish when given the chance to explore and reframe their life stories. I hope that together we might create a space that is kind, genuine and yours, where you too can engage in this daring and valuable work.

Accepting NEW clients! Within the past two years, we have all undergone significant change within our lives. Change can be difficult, and for some this shows up as grief. This change can be the loss of a job, loss of social time, loss of alone time, loss of friendships, loss of a loved one, or even a loss for what could have been. Grief is mentally and physically exhausting and I recognize the strength and courage it takes to reach out to someone for help. You deserve a space to be heard and have someone understand the pain and struggle you’ve experienced.
