Are you going through relationship issues, intimacy issues, sexuality/gender identity exploration, or trauma processing? Are you a part of the LGBTQ, ethical nonmonogamy, or kink/BDSM communities? It is instrumental to have a therapist who is non-judgmental, supportive and accepting of what you’re going through. If you are facing these issues and want support in a therapeutic space, I welcome you to join me, individually or as a relationship unit, to process and work through the obstacles you are facing. These topics have been taboo to discuss for too long. Join me in shedding the stigma and shame and in creating safety and trust.

As a multi-racial, non-binary person, I know what it's like to have parts of myself unseen, to codeswitch, to continuously do my own work in relation to privilege.
What would it be like to have a trans and queer therapist who also has a lot of therapist experience? Give yourself a chance to find out! People who work with me say things like "I'm worried about a relationship", "How can I live in my truth?", "Why do I feel so different than other people?" "My identities make me a target", "How do I support my gender nonconforming kid?" "How do I navigate parenthood as a trans or queer or QTBIPOC person?", "It's hard to find my community". If you're ready for some deep exploration and therapy that honors your values, culture, and spiritual practices, let's do it!

Flow is seen as easy movement through life, but flow is found within our challenges too. Discomfort can be a catalyst to neuroplasticity & growth. Traumatic stress from past & present can overwhelm our natural rhythms & balance. Connecting to body and intuitive experience leads us along the path of healing. I help clients navigate their routes to wellness & authentic embodiment with a well exercised sense of humor, grace for self/others & common sense tools. I work to co-create & hold space for clients to understand & release trauma, from ancestral to individual, grounded in systems perspectives for de-pathologizing mental health.

As a queer and trans identified therapist, I personally understand how painful it can be to go to someone for support and be met with microaggressions, rejection, or outright hostility because of your marginalized identity. Therapy can be a transformative tool of self-discovery and a place to collaboratively develop a roadmap to a life filled with deep meaning and joy. But if your therapist does not understand or accept crucial parts of who you are, it can be deeply damaging and disheartening. If you have had experiences like these, I may be a good fit to provide you with the culturally competent therapy you deserve.

My background is primarily in working with survivors of acute or complex trauma, individuals managing diagnoses of mental illness such as anxiety and depression, LGBTQI+ adults and teens, and folks navigating alternative lifestyles such as BDSM and non-monogamy.

With the demands of everyday life, our own emotional demands can often go unmet- causing pain, discomfort, bitterness, and frustration. Taking a step back from the responsibilities pulling us in all directions to closely examine our emotions and relationships can feel impossible, uncomfortable, or even intolerable. But if you're interested in pursuing therapy, you may have already realized the discomfort of things remaining "stuck" is worth trading for the discomfort that comes with growth. If you want to make changes and don't know where to start, talking it through with an empathic therapist can help.

Life is full of feelings whether we like it or not. If you are struggling to identify your emotions and what they mean, you are not alone. Trauma, transitions, and a history of a lack of emotional guidance can make it feel as though you are grasping at straws. If you have children of your own you want to teach, this can be even more overwhelming. No matter the reason for this sense of overwhelm, you do not have to go through this journey of self compassion alone. I am a firm believer that we all have a “toolbox” of coping skills. Some may be empty, some filled with rusty tools, and others are just out of reach.

Sometimes, core parts of who we are fall outside of what is considered normal or acceptable. It can feel impossible to understand yourself. You might feel invisible or wonder if you’re really the problem. You know that hiding these parts of yourself doesn’t feel right and isn’t sustainable. At the same time, you question whether it’s worth all the pain that might come from fully exploring and expressing yourself without hiding your identity, isolating from others, or masking. You may already have a strong sense of your identity and know what would help but feel that it's not accessible or possible.
