I work with couples and those in platonic relationships in all different stages—maybe you and your partner(s) want a dedicated space and time to connect and focus on your relationship or would like to work through challenges and issues as they arise or you’re going through a major life transition (like a new health diagnosis or moving in together) and need some additional support. Maybe you’re interested in opening up your relationship and want to explore ethical nonmonogamy or polyamory. Or you and your best friend had some recent ruptures you’d like to try and repair with the help of someone else. That’s where I come in.
I specialize in working with couples, triads, polycules, friends, families, queer platonic relationships, and business partners. I offer tools on navigating conflict as well as helping folks explore what's happening beneath the conflicts and/or ruptures. What needs aren't being met? What patterns are at play? I also provide psychoeducation when appropriate.
As a queer therapist, I love working with LGBTQIA+ folks. I also support folks who decide that deescalating their relationship or breaking up is the best thing to do. Sometimes people are in our lives for the whole storybook while others are a part of a chapter or two. Reach out for a free consultation call!

I am an active therapist in the room, which means I like to provide psychoeducation when appropriate and gently challenge you to see things from a different perspective or dig deeper. I also frequently utilize humor because therapy doesn't have to always be so serious. Lastly, I understand how much cultural values and systemic oppression can greatly impact someone's mental and physical health.
