I work with LGBTQ+ partnerships, folks who practice polyamory, ethical non-monogamy, BDSM/ kink , and other non-traditional open relationships.
Hi queer, kinky, & poly lovers! Relationships can be painful and f-ing frustrating. Is conflict killing the mood? Are you ready to break your cycle and learn healthy ways of communicating? Or maybe you want to open your relationship and you need a non-monogamy roadmap. Or you’re looking for a couples therapist who feels totally comfortable and experienced talking about BDSM. Or maybe there was moment when your trust was shattered? Do you feel like everything you once believed about your relationship was a lie? I'm not afraid to go into those dark places with you. You don’t have to do this alone. We’ll get to the other side together.

Often our hurtful experiences are out of our control. You didn’t choose to live with pain. You are tired of feeling alone and misunderstood. The reality is our experiences and memories can shape our beliefs and worldviews, creating guilt, anxiety, shame, anger, and isolation. Living with chronic pain, illness, trauma, anxiety, and grief – does impact us. Even if you don’t feel like it at this very moment, there is part of you that knows they deserve something more, whether it’s self-compassion, healthy connections, pleasure, joy, or the chance to move from surviving to thriving. Let's get curious.

My practice is based on anti-oppressive principles & embodied awareness. I'm an openly queer therapist, and I work with adults 25+ of all sexualities & genders to address depression, anxiety, life transitions, chronic pain, family conflict, relationship issues, self-esteem, & trauma using a holistic approach to healing. I have expertise in addressing sexual violence & the traumatic effects of systems (racism, sexism, homophobia etc). I encourage clients to nurture their inner voice, to gently observe what happens in the present moment, & to engage actively in the therapeutic process. My practice is poly, kink & sex worker affirming.

It may be difficult to find a therapist who is well versed in being sex positive , kink friendly, non-monogamous allied, and informed on chronic illnesses. These unique relationships require experience from someone who is passionate about them! You may need help with your multiple relationships, your relationship structure, or just someone to talk to who will not wince when your sex life is brought up. You may be struggling with a recent diagnosis of a chronic illness and want to talk with someone about it who understands the gravity a chronic illness diagnosis can bring. I love for clients to educate me on their lived experiences!

You are the only expert of your own life, but sometimes we need a little help. My perspective is that I'm the GPS and you're the driver- you know where you are isn't where you want to be and I am there to guide you and re-route as needed. I have worked with a wide range of clients with a focus on military members and dependents, life stressors, trauma (combat and otherwise), marital distress, depression, anxiety, and domestic violence. I am LGBT+, kink , and sex work friendly. I believe that it takes courage to come to therapy and you deserve authenticity and a space where you can address your concerns without fear of being judged.

I am LGBTQIA+ affirming, sex-positive, sex worker friendly, kink /BDSM friendly, and alternative relationship friendly.
I work with clients who feel disconnected from themselves or others. Clients often tell me of not knowing who they are, what they want in life, who they like, or who they want to be. They share with me about feeling disconnected in their relationships, feeling isolated, having a loss of intimacy or eroticism, and having trouble with communication. Clients often share the desire to grow within themselves and their relationships, to figure out who they are and where they want to go. When we work together I will provide a safe, nonjudgmental space for us to go deep, explore those areas of growth and work on achieving your goals.

I am dedicated to providing a space that is Anti-Racist, LGBTQQIAAP+ affirming, Fat Liberating, Sex Positive , and Disability Justice Oriented.
I practice primarily from a compassion-oriented perspective. In my practice, I embrace vulnerability and lean on the power of human connection. My approach to this work centers on the mind-body connection, nervous system awareness + relational equity as the most valuable components in healing from trauma. All of the biggest emotions are welcomed in the container we co-create. Trauma can create an imbalance in power dynamics and rigid options in our lives, so power-sharing + access to choice will be the anchor we often come back to.

Asking for help and being vulerable in therapy can be scary, but my goal is to create a support space for you to heal and make a change. For all clients I use an anti-racist theoretical foundation to ensure equity in my practice. When establishing a therapeutic relationship with my clients, my goal is for clients to see themselves as the experts of their own lives. By following a child/person centered strategy, we work together to dig deep and develop tools to understand their needs and boundaries so my clients can be successful.

Having been counseling for over 15 years, I know that things can get out of control. We're told that we must pull ourselves up by our bootstraps and handle anything that comes our way, but we struggle to do it on our own. Many of us have been impacted by addictions, tragedy, narcissism, depression, anxiety, things under our control and things out of our control. We start to question ourselves and wonder what’s healthy even look like? I focus on helping people heal, bringing health back into their life, and then find their best path forward.

Many people have had scary or terrible things happen to them. Maybe you feel like you just want it to be over or you should have gotten past it already. Maybe you’ve told people what happened and their response was confusing, hurtful, or dismissive. Maybe you’re a parent and are completely lost on how to help your child move forward. You might have reminders of what happened impacting your life through nightmares, flashbacks, or trying to avoid any mention or reminder of the event or events. You might feel numb. Everyone deserves to be seen and to share their story with someone who is empathetic, caring, and helpful.

Being authentic comes easy, but your self esteem is still low. You hate being alone and how you feel about yourself stops you from connecting with other people. You’ve always had trouble with loving yourself however you’ve no problem loving others. Your routine and habits don’t align with what you see for yourself and you’re ready to make a change. You want to experience the soft life you keep hearing about. Traveling ,self care and being treated gently is your ultimate goal. Therapy with me will have you loving yourself & others will see the change in you.

Nature's Way Holistic Counseling offers clinical mental health counseling with the addition of a health and wellness framework that connects the body, mind, and spirit. We believe in the term "holistic" counseling because our minds are not independent of all other aspects of life, but is dependent upon the complex, interconnected factors of life, including the food we eat, the environment in which we live, and the content we consume. Although some counseling services address these topics on some level, there is a gap in the field of practitioners offering such a comprehensive evaluation.

As individuals with lives in constant flux, it can seem strange and feel scary to ask for assistance from others. Oftentimes, we resist that urge despite all signs pointing towards it. Despite that fear, when we take that step and seek assistance in life, we open ourselves to wonderful possibilities and opportunities for growth and change. As a Counselor, I find personal growth can flow both ways during therapy. learn more about others and our respective worlds that empowers us to push past barriers that we thought were impossible to breach.

My ideal client would be someone struggling with life based on what they were taught or the environment in which they were raised. Sometimes what we feel worked for us in one environment or situation will not work in the same environment or a new one based on time or the growth of others. I believe we all owe it to ourselves to make self-reflection a consistent habit and aim to grow as much as we can. My clients often want to feel comfortable in their own skin, communicate well with others and live a life full of success and peace. I focus on personal acceptance, healthy relationships (Family/romantic) and peace for my clients.
