About

The Affirming Pathways Team is Accepting New Clients! I am Native and a queer identifying therapist and owner of Affirming Pathways. I understand personally and professionally, how important knowledgeable and affirming care is for all. That is why an essential part of my practice is creating a space where you feel welcome, seen, and respected. My goal is to work alongside you in a meaningful therapeutic relationship where you'll feel safe to fully explore areas of difficulty, pain, connection, and growth -without- the strain of not knowing if your therapist acknowledges their privilege or that you'll need to educate on your time.
I specialize and have experience in working with gender, sexual/affectional and relationship structure (CNM/BDSM+) minorities at any stage of the journey . I work with individuals, relationships, and families on topics like communication, conflict resolution skills, infidelity, trauma, depression, anxiety, ADHD (I have ADHD myself) and more.
Navigating life's stressors can be exhausting, but you don't have to do it alone. We offer free consults to help with your first step. We see consults as your time to interview therapists and find the right fit for you since it's key in the therapy process. We truly welcome all your questions and hope to have the privilege of working alongside you!
