*Practice Full-Email for consult* I believe the most important parts of therapy are trust and collaboration. You'll know immediately if the therapist is right for you. If you don't feel it, keep looking. There's a lot of us therapists out here and your time and self-work are important! Additionally, at our most vulnerable times in life, we need someone who will hold a safe space for us to approach our edges - the parts of us we tend to avoid or neglect. Addressing our 'issues' is intensely brave and can also be terrifying! I commend you for embarking on this journey and invite you to call me if my words resonate with your needs.

My desire is to work with people who are exploring their relationships and sexuality, whether monogamous or non-monogamous. I am kink friendly and sex positive . I have experience working with depression, anxiety and substance use disorders, although these are not my current primary focus. I think that the mind-body connection is essential, both in expressing desire and maintain lifelong health.

My areas of focus and expertise include: Coping with depression and/or anxiety; addressing trauma; navigating transitions; identity development; developing shame resilience; having healthier boundaries with others; drug and alcohol misuse; nontraditional, queer, and/or kink -practicing relationships.
What do you want to change? At the shorter end of things, it's possible to make positive changes in a handful of sessions. This is often the case for issues related to specific events. For more serious and/or chronic problems, longer-term work is appropriate, especially when a sufficiently safe therapeutic relationship takes more time to build.

I'm LGBTQIA+, poly, and kink affirming, body-positive, and generally welcoming of humans in all our beautiful, flawed glory.
We all feel stuck sometimes—in old patterns, painful feelings, anxious thoughts, or harsh beliefs about ourselves or others. And therapy is a great place to change those things. But I believe the true magic of therapy is in learning to feel—really feel in your bones—how whole and worthy you actually are, no matter how stuck or broken you might feel today. Together, we’ll get to know and learn accept all parts of you (yes, even that harsh inner critic) and heal old wounds so you can feel more balanced and integrated. My job is to support you—and challenge you—in identifying and removing the barriers standing in your way.

I identify as a queer, multiracial (Japanese, Chinese, White), sex positive , body positive, kink friendly, cisgender woman.
You don’t fit into society’s norms and maybe you don’t even want to. You may be BIPOC, LGTBQIA+, QTPOC, kinky, polyamorous, ethically non-monogamous, intersectional, or neurodivergent. There can be great joy and pride in being different, but difference can also be met with oppression. I know what it’s like to feel othered, how it can effect self esteem, your ability to connect with others, and can lead to trauma, isolation, sadness, depression, anxiety, anger, grief, hopelessness and confusion.

The therapeutic process is a powerful tool for growth and change. Diagnosis as "dia" and "gnosis", is to know across. Once recognized, the obstacles we experience can be compassionately cared by developing awareness and coping skills to alleviate suffering. I'm happy to support you in exploring changes that achieve a greater sense of happiness and fulfillment in your life.

Do you feel like your stuff is too messy to share even to a therapist? Do you have kink or poly considerations and are tired of explaining why your relationship is valuable? Does it feel like your relationship with your family is just too hard to navigate? Are you trying to figure out your identity? Are you deconstructing your faith? I can help!.
I enjoy working with individuals and families who are needing to improve communication, or are in the process of blending families. I also enjoy working with people who have recently been diagnosed with autism (or have a loved one with this diagnosis). I also enjoy working with folks of color that are embracing or reconnecting to their racial/cultural identities. I have a special place in my heart for those impacted by transracial/trans cultural adoption as well as anyone involved in adoption.

I love helping clients explore where they're stuck and collaborate with them to find creative solutions.

Understanding of Queer, Trans, Kink , Poly, Sex Positive and BDSM lifestyles.
You can find a safe space with therapy when you can find it nowhere else. Finding trustworthy professionals to help you with intimate issues is embarrassing and difficult. This is my most important skill, something not learned in school: unconditional positive acceptance and honest, non-threatening communication about intimate problems. Here you will find sensitivity to private behaviors which are regarded with non-judgmental acceptance and respect, never shame nor intolerance.
