Life can be really f-cking hard and my goal as a therapist is to show up in my authenticity with you and be a source of support as you navigate the many twists and turns of life. Therapy can be tough and I believe that it takes honesty, transparency, and connection to create the dynamic required for making change. My approach is eclectic and I am not one to shy away from the no-so-occasional curse word. Some of my favorite clients are those who have been anti-therapy/thearpy resistant throughout their lives. Let me show you that this journey doesn't have to be as bad as you've imagined.
While I am able to work with a number of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, work stress, and more, my primary focus of practice is sex and sexuality. Whether exploring Kink/BDSM, Swing Lifestyles, Non-Monogamy, and more, I am here to help you discover and empower your identity and to help it blossom in a safe, affirming, and open environment.

Dr. H recently did a training with us on bdsm/kink. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable, but she is relatable and authentic. We learned SO much and debunked so many myths and misunderstandings, all in a safe and non-judgmental space.
