About

Do you ever feel like you need to talk to about problems or feelings that you have, but you can't talk to a friend or family member because you fear being judged or not taken seriously? Speaking to a psychotherapist is a completely different experience. Working together, our focus will be on exploring the connections between your emotions, emotional responses and life's challenges and identifying changes you may need to make in order for you to enjoy a happy, more fulfilling life.
I provide compassionate mental health care to adults, especially those who live in kinky/power exchange/BDSM, ethically non-monogamous or poly lifestyles or are sex workers. I strongly believe that every person has the right to mental health treatment that is free of judgment, shame and stigma.
My goal is to help you identify and understand your emotions and circumstances that create barriers to having a more fulfilling life. Clients see me to discuss issues related to relationships with friends, romantic partners, family members and work colleagues.
