My ideal client is someone who has experienced trauma and is interested in learning the ways they have adapted to this new traumatic load. What we don't realize is that when we have been traumatized by sexual boundary violation or body image abuse, these impact the way we experience our bodies which impacts our sexuality. Being placed on non consensual diets as children forever impacts the internalization of our self worth based on colonization, white supremacist beauty ideals, and fatphobia. I operate staunchly from anti diet, radical fat liberation, and Health at Every Size approaches.

Working in the field of sexual trauma for 8 years, I have a deep sense of the ways we carry trauma in our bodies. I have advanced sex therapy training and am an international expert on sexual trauma, body image, and internalized fatphobia. I center radical anti oppression politics in the therapy room as well as in all of my political education work.

It may have taken you some time to finally seek out help. Leave me a voicemail. Shoot me an email. We can start with a warm cup of tea and talk about what's on your mind. I offer a cozy, soothing therapeutic environment and container for all the things that feel too heavy for you to carry alone. Reach out. Let me help you carry some of that for you.
