I am a clinical social worker with advanced training in human sexuality. I assist clients in gaining insights about gender, sexuality and/or relationships. For example, I can help in healing from sexual harm, improve sexual functioning, address out-of-control sexual behavior, and help explore challenges related to sexuality and ability. I can help you live authentically within intimate relationships (inclusive of non-monogamy), and explore the development of sexual attraction and gender identity over the life course. I help many people heal from sexual harm and live more authentic lives from a holistic perspective.
What are “stories we tell ourselves” (and stories we’re told) about sex, gender, relationships? Most don’t get holistic sexuality education growing up, so if issues develop later in life or there are habits that you’d like to change I can give you access to information you deserve, and serve as an accountability partner around creating change.
With an emphasis on healing around relationships, gender and sexuality through liberation from shame and oppression, I’m interested in helping others achieve fulfilling, authentic ethical lives. If you have concerns and are interested in asking questions and gaining insights to work toward authentic connections with others, let’s talk about how to do that.

I use a number of modalities, tending towards support and education for the ethical relationships skills so many of us were not taught, as well as examining your past and figuring out how to unlearn patterns of behavior that are not currently serving you.
