I believe that my role as a therapist is to create a space where you feel supported, safe, and validated as we navigate challenges together. I will be there beside you as you gain the skills to shape your life the way you envision and work towards your goals. I think that everyone can benefit from therapy, whether it’s short-term to help you through a life transition or longer-term support, I will be here to help and accept you as you are. Many people who are members of the LGBTQ+, kink , or poly communities can feel stigmatized during therapy and I aim to provide a non-judgmental atmosphere for all my clients.

I am sex-positive, kink -positive, and welcoming to clients in polyamorous or otherwise nontraditional relationships.
As a queer trans neurodivergent therapist with my own history of trauma, I know what it's like to feel trapped in cycles you can't seem to escape, and I know what it's like to fear judgment based on what you do to survive. I have a decade of experience providing culturally affirming, trauma-responsive counseling and care to LGBTQ clients and others directly impacted by intersectional oppression. If you are struggling - if you feel stuck - I can help you escape patterns of survival and learn to thrive. I can help you unpack trauma and move forward unburdened.

I'm a BDSM and kink affirming clinician, and work with couples and individuals who identify as CNM.
I have worked for over a decade with clients across the lifespan. Currently I work with adults and couples. My main goal is to first and foremost get an understanding of what someone is struggling with so I can determine how I can best assist them in their therapy process. I pride myself on my ability to meet people where they are at, build a supportive relationship, and help them work towards achieving their goals. I am currently working towards AASECT certification and obtaining my PhD in Clinical Sexology, so I have a particular interest working with couples and individuals in the areas of sex therapy.
