About

It can be really overwhelming to take the first step in managing your mental health or even to start your journey towards safety within your body/mind and in relationships with others. And let's face it, relationships are crazy-making at times. Wheher we are navigating the dating/hookup scene or already established relationships with ourselves, partners, our family of origin, or even the chosen family we must create, it can be really easy to get lost and struggle to find our way back to satisfying and fulfilling relationships. As a queer relational therapist, I can offer you unique insights and a safe space to process and heal.
I love working with individuals/couples/families of all kinds and relational structures (monogamy, polyamory, queer platonic relationships, etc). My special interests include: dating/couple work; identity related shame/life transitions; depression, OCD, suicidality; & creating safety for people of color. My passion is fueled by empowering your voice.
I know it's hard to reach out & ask for help. It's harder, still, to feel alone in whatever it is that you're struggling with. You don't have to walk this journey alone. Send me an email &let's chat about the ways to create safety for you& the relationships that matter most. Maybe we can work together and write new possibilities for the next chapters of life
