Announcement icon I am currently offering teletherapy only, but am available to all residents of California
Are you wary of labels and conformity? Do your relationship preferences fall beyond society’s dictated norms? If so, I offer therapy for individuals & couples whose lives won’t fit into tidy little checkboxes. First and foremost, I am a practitioner of collaborative therapy. I believe that you are the expert in your own life, and it is not my role to tell you what’s wrong and what to fix. Rather, I am here to listen to you and to help you develop the solutions that work best for you. I am polyam- and kink-aware, and an LGBTQ+ ally.
My focus is on relationships that fall beyond the stereotypical norms dictated by our society. Perhaps you and your partner decline to check the simplified boxes of “male” or “female.” Perhaps you are exploring consensual non-monogamy. Perhaps your relationship unit is more than a couple. Perhaps you are experimenting with kink. Or perhaps all of the above.
If your relationship preferences are non-conforming or just not labelable, you may face challenges in understanding and acceptance from friends and loved ones, counseling professionals, or maybe even yourself. My goal is to help you manage these challenges coming from the outside while working on and strengthening your relationship from the inside.
