Choosing new possibilities is a courageous act. If you’ve found your way here, you may be feeling deep sadness, loneliness, anxiety, a sense of frustration or just simply exhausted. Perhaps you're curious to discover and create a new relationship with yourself, your partner(s), or the work that you do in the world. When it comes to sexuality, love, or our work, many of us are carrying around old stories, misinformation, and the pain of difficult experiences that we want to be free of. If you are wrestling with love/sexuality or feeling drained by work that once felt exciting and no longer does, I can help.

I teach you somatic/mindfulness-based skills, provide tools to reduce shame and isolation, help you put words to your needs and desires, as well as empower you to navigate challenging conversations, to handle conflict and to design the the joyful and satisfying relationships you want.

I specialize in supporting People of Color, interracial relationships, LGBTQ folks & people in the Kink/ Poly communities. I have spent 10+ years training clinicians about sexual wellness, presenting at conferences, leading workshops, and curating sensuality salons. If I can be a resource in any way, I invite you to contact me.
