Healing and change are possible for all of us. I am reminded daily of people's innate ability to mend and grow if they are provided with the right tools in a supportive and compassionate environment. Past traumatic events can leave scars and behavior patterns that can get in the way of people leading the life that they choose. I create a safe space where we can work together to allow scars to heal and transformative change to take place. My clients experience healing from sexual trauma, adverse life events, relationship issues, generalized anxiety, and dissociative symptoms and they find freedom from feeling "stuck".

In therapy we will identify what kind of sexual/intimate life you most want and the barriers you are experiencing in having that sexual/intimate life. Sometimes that means exploring past experiences, sometimes it means talking about desires or about your body in new ways. I will create a safe space for you to share about body positivity, exploration of ethical non-monogamy, challenges with sexual desires, and gender identity.
