"A safe place to show up—and to be accepted—exactly as you are. The freedom to move at your own pace as you rewrite old narratives that no longer serve you. The respect of someone who sees you as the expert in your own life, and who views their role in your journey as co-pilot, not navigator. These are things you will experience working with me. I am particularly interested in providing teletherapy to clients in California regions lacking LGBTQ-, poly-, kink-, and/or neurodiversity-affirming mental health professionals."

" Sometimes it’s hard to believe that anyone “gets it.” We all need connection; to know that we’re loved & belong. You want more intimacy in your relationships and to be your true, authentic self. You long for more closeness & warmth in your partnership—to feel seen & heard. You need to set boundaries but have no idea where to start? Or maybe you love to help others but find it difficult to speak up when YOU need care. You might even know there is healing to be done but fear it’s beyond repair. We will help you be fiercely who you are, find meaning & purpose, heal old wounds, & cultivate thriving connections to find wellbeing. "
