Hi there! My name is Radha, I am a sex therapist that wants to help provide an affirming space for BIPOC Transgender , Non-binary and Queer/2SLBGIAA+ identified individuals and couples/triads/polycules to explore and understand sex/intimacy/sexual health and gender through trauma informed care. I provide a Feminist and Multicultural framework centering Pleasure as an everyday experience. I provide somatic and sensorimotor focused work exploring how current or past trauma impacts feeling present in your body and feeling attuned in your relationships. We will also explore how larger oppressive systems can interfere with pleasure.

As a transgender Queer person, I also provide a space for other transgender and Queer people to cope with related issues, such as discrimination.
Whether this is your first time looking for a therapist or you have spent ages trying to connect with the right fit, everyone is welcome regardless of where they are at in their healing journey. I am a firm believer in my clients being the experts in their life and my role as a therapist is to provide a safe, affirming space for clients to explore and grow. I also believe that there is no one-shoe-fits-all approach to therapy and that each client brings their own knowledge and strengths. No matter what you are experiencing, I am here to help you get where you want to be.

If you are LGBTQ+, you may be feeling lost and struggling to find someone who “gets” you. As a queer transgender man, I have a unique perspective into the challenges of navigating our world, and I feel empowered to support folks who are exploring what it means to live as their authentic selves. I’m invested in supporting folks at any age who are like us. I encourage you to bring anything into our sessions so we can process things together. All vibes are welcome with me: if you’re having a particularly difficult day, if you’re nervous about starting therapy, if you feel like you should be able to handle this on you own.

My experience includes addressing trauma/PTSD, substance use/abuse and recovery, anxiety, depression, transgender and gender dysphoria , and LGBTQ+ issues for adolescents and adults as an ally.
Over the past seventeen years as a therapist, one frequent obstacle I have come across is the commute people make for sessions. Having to take an extra hour (or more) of the day to commute, having to find child care, pick up kids from school, or find transportation in the first place often becomes a reason people don’t pursue therapy. Prior to Covid-19 I began working with telehealth and moved towards seeing everyone from their own home to remove this barrier.

My experiences include working with clients experiencing transitions through both pregnancy and postpartum, those who have experienced pregnancy loss, those who are experiencing chronic/terminal illness, and those who identify within the LGBTQ community including non-binary, gender non-conforming, transgender individuals.
Throughout the course of our lives we will all experience life events that may cause stress, trauma or even grief. As a result of these events, it’s natural for them to weigh heavily on your mental and emotional well being. It is also very common to feel as if your life is unraveling and that you have no way of piecing things back together. With a concentration on Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Strength Based treatments, and Trauma Informed Care.

***Attention I do not take HAP. The insurance listed is incorrect. I am not able to take HAP insurance.******** I am open to working with LGBTQIA+ clients. Since we live in a heteronormative homophobic, transphobic society I feel it is absolutely essential to fight such oppression intentionally and persistently. My hope is to offer LGBTQIA+ clients support, love, compassion and a place of healing and peace where they can find liberation and truly express the fabulous individual they are. I also have extensive experience working with rape crisis, domestic violence, and sexual assault survivors.

I specialize in helping Queer and Chronically Ill folx develop self-compassion to lead authentic lives. Whether you've experienced the cruelty of racism, transphobia, homophobia, misogyny, hyper-capitalism, or ableism, I believe it's possible for you to heal. Part of my job is acknowledging where and how harm has been caused and to help you explore how to exist in an unjust world. I have found addressing stigma, intergenerational trauma, and isolation are often the keys to lasting change.

My areas of clinical interest include anxiety, depression, substance use, life transitions, grief, minority stress, trauma and identity concerns. I have a particular interest in supporting those who are LGBTQIA+ identified and other marginalized and oppressed populations.

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.
