I am LGBTQAI-affirming as well as kink-aware and poly friendly.
Welcome! Congratulations on taking the first step on this adventure. I know finding the right therapist can be hard and a grueling process. For many clients this is the first time they have asked for help. I am passionate about creating a space for clients that is safe, freeing & nonjudgmental. I hope to do this through my multicultural background, interest in the client's perspective and the therapeutic relationship built. I operate from a systems & contextual framework where I believe clients are stuck, not sick. I work with clients to create goals and plans that are collaborative and empowering.

I am sex, kink, polyamory, and LGBTQIA+ affirming.
My goal as a therapist is to provide the space for my clients to explore and understand themselves. I believe in the power of therapy as a space to connect and to name one's truths and desires aloud. I provide clients with an empathic, nonjudgmental space where they can explore the stories they have learned about themselves over time. Much of my work is focused around the intersections of identity, trauma, and mental health, and I am committed to exploring the ways that race, gender, and other social identities show up in the world and in the therapy room.

**Sex positive & experienced in working with diverse lifestyles.
Three beliefs I hold that influence how I practice are 1) human beings are not problems to be solved 2) therapy is ultimately about relationship 3) the process itself is the solution. We humans are infinitely complex; we're full of opposition and paradox. Our culture pushes quick fixes and immediate answers, but lasting change rarely comes about when we work in this way. I'm interested in helping you come into fuller, richer, more conscious relationship with all of your moving and sometimes disparate parts. Together we will work from the inside out through a deep, relational process.

Even before the pandemic, our society created the conditions for a public health crisis in which anxiety, depression, loneliness, and lack of meaning were pervasive.  Now that every aspect of life has been turned upside down, we are hurting more than ever. Most of us are facing separation from that which used to bring us joy. Therapy is one of the supports you can choose to help tap into inner sources of strength so you can get through these hard times.

Therapy is about relationships. Whether we are creating personal healing through the therapeutic relationship, changing the way we interact in romantic partnerships, at work, or with family, or shifting our relationship with trauma and other past wounds, we are creating a new space where empathy and compassion can grow. When you make the choice to begin work in therapy, it is a radical act of love, both for the self and for others, and you can expect our work together to reflect this. I work with clients from all backgrounds, but have particular experience and interest in the queer, trans, polyam/CNM, kink, and artistic communities.
