I am a somatic practitioner who specializes in working with trauma, the LGBTQIA+ community, cultural concerns, consensual non-monogamy/polyamory, and kink/BDSM.
Welcome to my practice! Seeking professional support is a courageous step. Life often poses many challenges, which can be difficult to navigate alone. Through empathic, genuine, and non-judgmental support, I help clients understand how past experiences have impacted their current lives and relationships. I work collaboratively and creatively with my clients to build their awareness and confidence to feel empowered to make changes that lead to more satisfying and fulfilling lives. My aim is to help clients reduce suffering, build insight and awareness, develop more adaptive resources, and facilitate growth and healing.

Making changes in your life can be exciting, scary or often a mixture of both. You want to have the right support when you are experiencing a life transition such as gender transition; opening, escalating, or de-escalating a relationship; accepting and affirming a diagnosis of neurodivergence; or navigating the diagnosis or progression of a disability or chronic illness in yourself or a loved one. If you are seeking an experienced and passionate mental health professional to explore the emotional impact of LGBTQIA+ identity, polyamory, or disability, I would like to talk to you more about how I can help.

I will work with you to address concerns related to sexual and gender identities, coming out, non-monogamy, polyamory, dating, infidelity, and performance anxiety.
Sex and relationships are integral parts of our lives. However, miscommunication, self-perceptions, and expectations can prevent us from having the connections we want. Although our frustrations can seem insurmountable at times, change is possible. Looking for a therapist is a positive first step. Whether you are looking to gain personal insight, develop coping strategies, or improve your relationships and sexual functioning, we can work together to achieve your goals. I work with individuals and couples. I am licensed in VA and DC and certified as a sex therapist by AASECT.

I work with clients who are navigating discovering who they are as a person; who struggle with being heard or expressing themselves in interpersonal relationships; who have had difficult experiences that may make them feel overwhelmed to think of, let alone discuss. It can be difficult to even know where to start, and that is okay. I commend and welcome clients who are taking that first unsure step in therapy, or are continuing treatment to continue their journey towards a more fulfilling and enjoyable life.

Navigating adulthood as a 20- or 30-something is not something we're taught and can leave us feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and disconnected. You may be asking yourself: Is adulting supposed to be this tough? Why does everyone but me seem to have it all figured out? I know I’m too hard on myself, but how else will I improve and finally start to feel “good enough?” If I'm aware of the patterns that keep getting in my way, why is it so hard to change them? You are not alone in feeling stuck, anxious, and lost right now. If it feels like you’ve tried everything and the support of family and friends isn't enough, it’s time for a change.
