Do you feel stressed, worried, lost? Are you fighting all the time with your partner and feeling stuck? Feel like you have to be someone else? If these sound true to you, I want you to know that in our society, we don’t talk about it very much, but what you are experiencing is normal.
I strive to co-create a space with you where we can deepen your self-awareness, transform ineffective beliefs and patterns, improve your relationships, and learn healthy ways to manage the challenges of your daily life. I am passionate about working through an intersectional, harm reduction and trauma-informed lens with everyone.
I am a good fit for LGBTQ+ people who need support navigating identity as well as people working on boundaries, self love, open relationships/polyamory. To get started, email or text me to set up a free 15 minute consultation.
