Queer , trans , LGBTQ +, trauma, poly - accepting new clients! I am a cisgender, bi-sexual, solo-poly woman. I have had battled through my own personal experiences of shame, anxiety, dysfunctional family relationships, institutional trauma, and have also participated in my own therapy and healing. As a therapist, I love being able to hold non-judgmental, supportive, and authentic space for my clients to dive into the depths of their pain and transform it into their personal power. I enjoy intuitively finding the strengths in each of my clients and supporting their healing journey's from a place of collaboration and compassion.

Are you tired of working with therapists who just don't seem to get it? Have you tried Eating Disorder and/or OCD therapy that seems to have been made for anyone but you- only left to feel like maybe you are the problem? As a recovered survivor and now therapist, I know this couldn't be further from the truth. I believe in everyone's innate ability to find healing through through the safety of relationship. Living with an Eating Disorder or OCD is exhausting, dark and all consuming. Together, we can find ways to improve your quality of life so that you may discover a life that is meaningful to you.

Courage, dear heart, as life will present you with surprises and in time, you will manage each one with bravery. Our families can push our boundaries; our relationships can challenge us; and our careers can stretch us so thin. Negative self-thoughts can keep us in our heads and repeating old patterns can feel like a roller coaster of emotions. Past traumas can intrude our present; social injustices can break our community down; and gender and cultural inequalities can be an exhausting battle. Our self-care can plummet and suddenly we are not our first priority. However, you are leaning in today and making an investment in YOU!

I provide tele therapy for individuals, and couples for CA residents. I do not have a physical office in CA. I also offer treatment for trauma. In today's world we are all finding that after working full time there isn't enough time to eat right, exercise, take care of errands, help the children with homework, and spend quality time with your significant relationships. What we end up with is exhaustion, feeling "burned out", anxious, and maybe even depressed. You are not alone. Don't suffer any longer. It's time to address your issues and get your life back.

I take a trauma focused approach, as these traumas and attachment issues can affect relationship dynamics and communication. I work with couples practicing BDSM/kink and also specialize in neurodiversity (ADHD and autism) and mixed neurotype couples. My practice works with LGBTQIA + couples and polyamorous couples.
