Do you feel as though you lack confidence in your ability to express yourself in relationships? Are you having a hard time finding affirmation and support for your needs or desires? Maybe you feel inauthentic in your roles or relationships and uncertain in your ability to change these uncomfortable aspects of your life. The therapeutic relationship can provide an affirming space for you to build confidence in yourself. It can be a place to explore your needs and wants and develop strategies to align yourself with them.
I am a relational therapist who seeks to develop a collaborative, affirming connection with each of my clients. I work to understand the intersecting identities of each individual and to develop a growth-fostering relationship from which you may grow to other connections that hold security and joy.
I work with individuals and relationships on challenges associated with relationships, anxiety, depression, and sexuality. I welcome individuals from LGBTQIA+, CNM/Polyam, kink, and fetish communities and take an affirming stance when working with folks who do sex work. I often work with people who have histories of traumatic experiences.
