I enjoy providing therapy for adults and couples, including LGBTQ+ and non-monogamous couples. I am poly, sex work, and kink - allied and -informed. I identify as a feminist trauma-informed therapist and am EMDR Trained, although I integrate many modalities depending on each client's unique personality and needs. I am a Gottman Level 1 Certified Couple's Therapist and utilize what I learn while working with couples to help individuals experiencing relational issues. My experience includes working with people with anxiety disorders, PTSD/complex PTSD, workplace issues and discrimination, spiritual concerns, and relationship issues.
I have a nonjudgmental attitude that will make you feel comfortable to become your most authentic self. No topic is taboo in my office, especially those we are often told not to speak about- religion, sex, and politics, etc. In fact, I encourage these conversations. My approach is warm, yet direct, and I value humor as an important tool for healing.
Entering therapy, whether for the first time or with a new therapist, can be very daunting. I intend to create a comfortable environment, take the mystery out of therapy, and help you feel empowered. You have already come this far on your journey towards healing, so I encourage you to reach out if you feel I'd be a good fit to join you.

I work collaboratively with clients to find the best approach to therapy for you. My approach is trauma informed, and I always assess for and treat trauma first (big T or little T). I believe both big and small traumas, including attachment and systemic trauma, contribute to most mental health conditions and relationship issues and increasing insight into triggers is the first step to healing.

I am a feminist, relational therapist and utilize multiple trauma-informed interventions. I am currently in the process of my EMDR training and also integrate ego state therapy (often referred to as "parts work"). My approach to couple's work is influenced by EFT and Gottman, incorporating trauma-informed interventions like ego-state therapy.
