From personal and professional experience I know how hard it can be to navigate difficult circumstances without support- and I’m so glad you’re here. I enjoy working with a range of clients and specialize in assisting individuals and couples who are neurodivergent, LGBTQ+, and/or adult survivors of complex trauma and their partners navigate anxiety, depression, communication issues, and cultivate healthy sexuality. I am also kink/BDSM affirming and poly/ethical non-monogamy affirming.
I lead with curiosity, warmth and authenticity as we work together to create a container that is conducive for your growth. I'll celebrate every win and encourage you to do the same-no matter how small or silly. With my clinical guidance, we will use a mix of practical skill-building with process-oriented exploration. All parts of you are welcome.
I became a therapist because even in the face of the most challenging circumstances, I believe everyone deserves the right to feel fulfilled, safe, and empowered. I love to help people move from shame-based to a pleasure-centered relationship to their sexuality. I'd love to hear from you & offer a free phone consultation to get started!
