I view therapy as a collaborative relationship, seeking to form a partnership to explore your struggles, moving towards growth and healing. I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, substance issues, grief/loss, relationship difficulties, trauma, oppression, chronic medical conditions, sexuality, eating disorders, and adoption issues. In addition to individual therapy, I work with couples, and relationships of all configurations.

I have a particular passion for working with couples to help them address conflicts such as communication, sexuality (LGBTQ), sexual trauma, anxiety, past relationship trauma, lack of intimacy, coping skills, relationship transitions, polyamory , infidelity, depression, and emotional regulation.
Relationships take work, but sometimes we don't know what work needs to be done, or how to do it in a way that strengthens the connections between us. That's where I come in. Therapy is like an objective mirror that reflects thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Through this mirror, you can begin to see a clearer picture of your relationship, so much so, that eventually you can carry that image outside of the therapy room & be happy & confident in what you see. In my work, I provide a space for vulnerability & understanding that allows these connections to foster change. We'll collaborate to make a plan that fits your specific needs.

I offer couples therapy for romantic partnerships of all configurations, including people practicing polyamory , non-monogamy, or open relationships.
My therapeutic approach centers on creating more opportunities for space and reflection. This is an active and transformative process where we learn how to interrupt old patterns of reacting and create room for intentionality in our responses. Many of us operate within the conditions of our early relationships and form ways of relating that we are longing to transmute. I support you as you learn to get to the root of the response, understand it, and to develop tools of self-healing so that you can one day see the well-worn reaction waiting for you, and choose something different.

In relationship therapy I specialize in working with infidelity, consensual non-monogamy, polyamory , parenting, communication, and intimacy and sexual difficulties.
Currently Accepting New Clients: Do you feel present and ready to meet life’s challenges? Improving your mental health can positively impact every aspect of your life. We would begin this work by defining your therapeutic goals, and understanding how they interact with your social context, your skills, your assets, and your challenges. We would talk about coping strategies, self-care, and boundaries. You would risk adopting new thoughts, perspectives, and behaviors. You would commit to working on yourself outside of our sessions, where it really matters. And, after all your hard work, you would be ready to celebrate your successes.

I am particularly passionate about working with clients who are LGBTQ+ identified, or practice “alternative” relationship styles, such as polyamory or BDSM.
***I AM ON LEAVE UNTIL JANUARY 2022 AND I AM NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING CLIENTS*** I work with adults in their 20s, 30s, and early 40s who are feeling stuck or unfulfilled and can’t pinpoint why. Often my clients are dealing with big life transitions, such as a career change, relationship beginnings or dissolutions, or new parenthood. The first few decades of adulthood are an exciting time of self-discovery and building the life you want to live. But they can also be stressful and overwhelming. I’m here to help people have confidence in themselves and their decisions.

Even on your worst day I want you to be able to move forward. Through my own healing process, I realized the importance of having unbiased feedback. It allows you to ask the big questions- what does it all mean, what is self love, how does trauma get healed, who is the right person to help me figure it out? Sometime healing is best served and understood by someone who identifies with the same cultural representation as you.

If you are reading this, it may be that you are searching for a corner of the world where you can allow yourself to feel confident, welcomed and accepted, just as you are. Perhaps you need some support to notice, understand and express some of your more difficult experiences. Maybe you have felt your unique identity become problematized, pathologized and invalidated during crucial or difficult periods of your life. This can often be the experience of people who call themselves twice-exceptional or neurodiverse, as well for those who are on a journey of gender expansion or transition, and intersex children and adults.
