I have extensive experience working with populations including Queer and LGBTQ people, interfaith and non-traditional spiritualities, and those who wish to focus on intimate relationship concerns including sexuality in older adulthood, consensual non-monogamy, and kink practices.
Sometimes we feel stuck and need guidance and support to feel balanced and able to face challenges again. You may be experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship challenges, intimate relationship issues, or adjustment concerns. Through safe and confidential telehealth video, you set your goals and receive the right level of support and guidance to achieve them. My services are not appropriate for those with violent behaviors, personality disorders, alcohol or drug dependence, or for the sole purpose of divorce/custody cases in court.

Although my clients are from all walks of life and situations, I work best when working with someone who identifies as LGBTQIA2S+, non-monogamous, on the kink /BDSM spectrum, and any overlapping identities thereof. My clients are either navigating change in their life (loss of a loved one, changing relationships, etc) or seeking to enact change in their life (reduction of mental health symptoms, building routine, etc). Along the way, they find their way to self-acceptance, self-compassion, and confidence. My clients want to build a collaborative partnership and want to build that partnership via telehealth.

I am trained in sex therapy, couples/relationship counseling and am kink and polyamory affirming.
Let's be real....relationships are HARD! Is divorce on the horizon after discovering infidelity and/or sex addiction? Are you overwhelmed by relationship issues and seeking sex therapy to address them? Couples tend to seek marriage counseling/ couples therapy when the relationship feels impossible to fix. Improving communication, increasing sexual satisfaction and connection, repairing longstanding conflict, are all reasons people seek couples therapy Whether it's been years of disconnect and low sexual desire, a decrease in connection due to parenting, or as a result of an affair these situations put couples at risk for separation

I have experience providing mental health services for LGBTQIA+ youth and adults, people living with HIV/AIDS, survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence, kink /BDSM practitioners, people in polyamorous and non-monogamous partnerships, and sex workers.
Reaching out and seeking support for yourself can be extremely vulnerable and taxing, especially when you've already been trying to manage overwhelming emotions and the issues of every day life. Even if we do not end up working together, I am glad that you are out here exploring what kind of help is available for you. Shopping for therapists can be tricky. Wherever you are in your journey, my goal is to meet you there and help you discover safe and inviting possibilities towards your goals.

I help highly-sensitive women heal trauma, navigate inner conflict, and find a deeper sense of connection with themselves and others in order to live more fulfilling lives. Using a somatically integrative approach to therapy, I guide clients towards self-compassion and out of shame cycles and old disempowering narratives. In sessions, I invite clients into experimental practices where we draw our attention to your embodied experience and explore your thoughts, images, movements, emotions and sensations as they arise. Always core to my work is: empathy, consent, attunement, presence, and curiosity.

Overall, I consider myself a "worldly nurturer". "Worldly", because I have worked with people from all backgrounds, cultures, ages, and walks of life to "nurture" their potential. All of my experiences have taught me the foundational skills that I use in my profession today, which are: patience, the ability to listen, the understanding that listening is as paramount as speaking, the capabilities to be resourceful, valuing modesty and humility whilst still being confident and capable, and having faith in my skill-set while still being open to professionally growing and developing.

I believe my role as a therapist is to build a safe and nonjudgmental partnership to support you in connecting with your own inner wisdom and capacity for growth, healing, and transformation. I combine your expertise in your own life with my training and experience to support you as a whole person (mind, body, spirit) in the context of your intersecting identities, experiences, and environment. Curiosity and compassion are core to my work. I specialize in working with adults impacted by complex trauma, chronic stress, and/or childhood emotional neglect. I also support people who feel 'stuck,' anxious, or emotionally overwhelmed.

I help highly-sensitive women learn how to self-heal trauma & navigate their life-path, through embodiment. Are you a deep feeler + thinker? Recovering perfectionist...people-pleaser... performer? Feel like you're both "too much" + "not enough"? Did you experience a lot of emotional neglect or trauma as a child? Struggle in relationship to self + others over the years? Still feel stuck & confused...frustrated...exhausted? Going through (another) dark night of the soul? Together, we will unwind old survival patterns and co-create new ways forward. If you're looking for a fresh body-mind-spirit approach, let's connect.

I am not your typical nor traditional therapist! If you're looking for a therapist who is stuffy and uptight, or if you prefer clinical jargon and lots of big words, I am NOT the therapist for you. I’m the therapist who may show up wearing jeans and sandals one week and a long dress the next. I have tattoos and don’t try to hide them. I will call you on your crap when appropriate, and I might even swear while doing so. I support BLM, LGBTQIA+ and I believe in Science. I may not be a "typical" therapist, yet I am me & I am genuine. If you want to become the best YOU possible, give me a call! I know I can help.

My aim and joy as a therapist is to understand you as an expert on your own life. In order to process the complexity of everyday living, we compartmentalize and make generalizations about our experience. Sometimes we hold on to generalizations that may have served us at one point, but no longer apply to current circumstances. I concentrate on listening, non-judgmental questioning, emotional support and holding space for your process. My collaborative approach focuses on adaptation, allowing us to apply the methods that work best, while processing and making space for what does not work.

My hope as a therapist is to work with the client to cultivate a safe and courageous space to begin to explore from a holistic lens. We each come into this work through a unique context of intersecting identities and experiences that deserve to be honored. My work is trauma informed and I understand trauma as something that can be experienced interpersonally, generationally, and systemically.
