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.

Friday and Limited Evening availability! There is no wrong way to begin the therapeutic process, but it usually starts with. a question or two. Why is this happening again and again? Why do I make these choices? How do I change? My role as a therapist is to help you face these questions and use the strengths you have to begin the healing process. This may include revisiting the past, finding mindfulness in the present and looking forward to a better future. I am an affirming CNM and kink practitioner. I am a couples therapist and have completed the first level of the Gottman Method couples therapy.

While I specialize in working with college and university students and with LGBTQ+ concerns, I do work with adults of any walk of life, affirming gender and sexual diversity, racial and ethnic identities and all manner of relationship make-ups - poly and kink aware in particular.
Waitlist for New Clients - Something isn’t working, maybe your mind has been racing and you don’t know how to quiet it down, maybe painful feelings keep you up at night or you don't know what you really want your life to be. If you're thinking you'd like some help figuring out what is going on and how you can create change in your life, I'm happy to use my experience as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor to provide the support and information you could find useful. My clients have told me they left therapy understanding themselves better, feeling more confident they can manage their emotions and improved at work or school.

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 specialize in relationship counseling and I want to help you feel more connected to the important people in your life. You do not need to be married to benefit from relationship counseling, and I am happy to work with you where you are in your relationship. I tend to work from an emotionally focused and experiential perspective, which means that I want to help you and your partner create an experience in which you can both feel seen, heard, and more connected.

I specialize in life transitions, polyamory, ethical/consensual non-monogamy, sexual dysfunction, sexual exploration, sexuality, LGBTQIA+, kink , alt sex, self-esteem, anxiety and relationship issues.
I am a queer sex therapist, providing a relaxed, open, collaborative and non-judgmental atmosphere. My intention is to support people in the LGBTQIA+, non-monogamy, and kink communities. I will cater my approach to your needs, but my natural style is straight-forward, so I tend to delve into the issues at hand so that you can see improvement in your emotional well-being as quickly as possible. Once immediate stressors have been calmed, we can work on a deeper level together in order to gain insight on underlying beliefs and experiences that may be contributing to your distress.

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.

Allied and affirming of LGBTQ; poly friendly, kink aware.
You give so much of yourself to others. Still, you're falling short of expectations. That unconventional perspective of yours has fueled your creativity, but you worry that people don’t really “get” you. It doesn’t help that you have anxiety in social situations. Even your closest relationship feels increasingly tense and disconnected. I want to help you find your way to calm, balance, and connection.

Taking the first step towards therapy is hard, and taking that first step when your concerns are sex-related can feel even harder. Most of us are taught from a young age that sex is a shameful topic that is not to be discussed openly— that any concerns, difficulties, or dissatisfaction you may experience related to sex, sexuality, or gender are to be ashamed of. I’m here to tell you that that is not true! Issues and concerns with sex and sexuality are very common, and it is healthy to talk to a therapist about them.

I believe pleasure and intimacy are key components to realizing your own worth. Whether you are looking to connect more deeply to yourself, a partner, or a community, I am here to reflect your own capacity for joy and fulfillment back to you. Therapy is about connection, and I bring my openness, curiosity, and sense of humor into my sessions. I use a blend of techniques from emotionally-focused therapy, somatic psychotherapy, sex therapy, and yoga to work with both individuals and partners.

As a graduate of the University of Minnesota's Program in Human Sexuality Postdoctoral Fellowship, I practice sex therapy from a sex positive perspective.
As a Certified Sex Therapist Supervisor and the Executive Director of the Carolina Sexual Wellness Center, I am passionate about helping my clients improve their sex lives and increase authenticity. I supervise a wonderful group of sex-positive clinicians who share my focus on issues related to sex, sexuality and gender. I love the connections I create with my clients and the bond we create as we work toward change. I know it can be difficult to take the first step, but you will not regret your decision to get help and learn the skills and strategies to overcome what has been holding you back. You can do this.

Clients I work with often want to understand themselves more fully, face high levels of self-judgment, or desire better relationships. They may struggle with disordered eating and body image issues or feel disconnected and adrift in life. In therapy, clients begin to see themselves and others with more clarity and compassion. I work with people to improve mood, understand and process emotions, heal from trauma, improve relationships, find direction, and build vitality. I am HAES-aligned, sex-positive, queer-affirming, and take an anti-oppression approach. I offer a free phone consultation to see if we’re a good fit.

Accepting New Clients - I am a strengths-based clinician who enjoys learning about my clients and their unique lived experience. I work with people in transition, who are still discovering themselves even later in life, and who are looking to identify what holds them back. I build a constructive dialogue with my clients, helping them gain insightful into their troubles, even when they struggle to see where their stressors lie. Even if you do not have the tools yet, but you are willing to take that first step and make a change, I will meet you every step of the way.

At times we may feel that there’s no one that can understand us or fear not looking like the “strong” friend. We struggle to talk about our emotions and often wear masks out of the belief that nothing will change. Do you struggle to take up space in conversations or in a room due to lack of confidence? Or constant feelings of inadequacy due to struggles in managing high expectations placed upon you? Are you a person that struggles to show your body love and compassion? Have you had a history of disordered eating and want to work towards unsubscribing from diet culture and embrace the skin you’re in?
