About

Have you ever experienced issues around your sex life, sexuality, or gender? These issues can feel awkward, lonely, and uncomfortable. Sexuality, sex, and gender are integral aspects of life that on the whole are ignored and misunderstood by society. Perhaps you want to learn about the desire difference between you and your partner, or you want to process through trauma that you have experienced in the past, or you would like to explore the world of BDSM and kink but have been too nervous to have a conversation with any of your friends. Regardless of your situation, your sexuality and gender needs are valid.
I currently work at The Island Institute for Trauma Recovery. Many of my clients have had trauma related to sexuality; however, I also work with folks on sexuality aspects including (but not limited to) intimacy issues, kink affirmation, consensual non-monogamy, and gender affirmation. I am currently working towards becoming AASECT certified as well.
My job is to create a comfortable and affirming space where you can discuss your sexuality, sex life, and/or gender without feelings of discomfort, isolation, and judgment. I hope to hear from you soon! If you are interested in setting up a time to meet, please reach out to me at the number listed above.
