I am committed to providing a sex-positive and affirming space for LGBTQ+, non-binary, kinky, ethically non-monogamous, and fat clients.
For many of us, anxiety, depression, and life stressors can be thought of like a wave that we ride throughout our lives. Sometimes the surf is good, and we can do so easily. Other times it might be choppy, and we have to use our resources and know-how to stay afloat. In bad times, it can feel like the waves are pulling you under. As a therapist, I strive to help clients navigate uncertain tides by processing these experiences together, drawing on their strengths, and improving coping skills.

Family dynamics can be one of the biggest challenges we face, and one of the most difficult things in our lives to manage. Relationships are hard, both with partners and with children. Do you find that your children sometimes feel like more of a burden than a joy? Are you finding your child's behaviors challenging or unmanageable? Maybe something is going on with your child that is more than "just a phase." Is parenting with your partner often stressful? Do you feel like you're not being heard and your relationship is unsatisfying? If you find that you are overwhelmed or consistently frustrated, maybe you need some support.
