I specialize in working with the LGBTQIA+ community and am kink and poly-friendly.
"A year from now, you may wish you started today." - K. Lamb - Working with a therapist can help you foster insight, provide support, and build new strategies to identify and address the core issues that interfere with relationships and work. Therapy can increase the flexibility with which you think about and engage in your life. My intent is for us to create a reliable and safe environment in which we can work together to address the issues you've been facing, improve understanding of yourself and help you feel less stuck in existing patterns of managing challenges.

I offer relationship and sex therapy, as well as LGBTQIA+, non-monogamy, and kink allied teletherapy for individuals and couples.
Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. As we navigate these, we are guided by our sense of identity, our past experiences, and the patterns we have learned. Often, however, these solutions do not serve us in the present and take the form of habits of mind and action which hold us back, shape our relationships, and create the illusion of false limitations; but there is hope. We are able to shape our lives through changing our patterns, the way we think and communicate, and the actions we learn to take. Through self understanding we may update our narrative and with it transform our realities.

I am also a queer clinician – one who is body positive, sex positive , and poly- and kink -allied.
I believe therapy is a tool for clients to be empowered and supported as they work toward their personal goals and cope with whatever life has thrown their way. I enjoy partnering with my clients as they strive to make meaning of these many challenges experienced across various stages in life. I have worked extensively with LGBTQ+ clients, those hailing from diverse backgrounds, as well as those working through trauma, anxiety, and depression. I am also interested to work with clients managing burnout in various high-pressure professions, and have extensive experience working with marginalized communities.

I am poly and kink knowledgeable, HAES-aligned, and strive to utilize a framework of humility when accompanying clients of color.
Note: I am not accepting patients at this time (01/2023). It is my belief that healing happens in relationships, and therapy is no different. We will orient our work toward what matters to you most, and through somatic tools, relationship building, and exploration of different parts of self, you can practice having choice over your patterns of being, relating, and feeling. I acknowledge the role of systems of oppression on mental health and wellness, and have particular training supporting an increased sense of safety, dignity, and belonging for those who have experienced trauma.

I identify as a committed ally of both the BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities and am poly and kink friendly, welcoming those with diverse sexual and gender identities and experiences.
My approach to psychotherapy is individualized to my clients’ unique needs, incorporating existential, psychodynamic, relational approaches, as well as mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) skills, to help manage difficult emotions and navigate obstacles arising in the therapeutic journey. Therapy is not one-size-fits all, so I encourage clients to discover their own path while building effective emotional tools to sustain long-term mind-body health and resilience. Narrative techniques may also be used to help shape a self-story that supports long-term resilience and an enduring sense of purpose and meaning in life.

***I am not currently accepting new clients*** Struggling with life transitions, creative ruts, and relationships are difficult in any situation but especially so if you do not follow the heteronormative path. It can be difficult to open up to someone when you are not certain that they understand Queer and Alternative relationship structures. I use an individualized approach with each client to build a therapeutic relationship based on specific goals. I focus my work around issues regarding LGBTQ+, sexuality, non-binary and transgender, complex relationships, power dynamics, sexual health, BDSM/ Kink , and other dynamics.
