Do social stigma, shame, or the expectations of others have an impact on your ability to fully express yourself? I aim to create space for the experiences & identities that you may not feel safe or certain about sharing with the folks in your life. This can include those who: identify as LGBTQ; want to support a loved one who is LGBTQ; are exploring sexual interests & gender expression; desire unconventional relationship structures (e.g., polyamory, non-monogamy); identify as sex workers; are kinky; are coping with mental illness; and/or who want to better understand maladaptive patterns in their relationships with self and others.

I take a curious, direct, person-centered approach: I'll be real with you. My practice is influenced by attachment and critical theory, with the use of CBT and humanistic interventions when appropriate. I have lived experience in many of my areas of specialization, and that has passionately directed my educational and research pursuits.

You can expect me to bring my authentic self into the space so you feel safe to do the same. If you desire a safe space to discuss anxiety, life stressors, self-care, sexuality, relationships, kink, your sexual/gender identity, or ideal relationship structure, we can set up a no pressure, 30 minute consultation. I'd look forward to hearing from you.
