About

You want to improve your communication skills, decrease reactivity, and bring intention to your daily life and relationships. You have experienced trauma and want a safe space to unpack it's impact. You are ready to grow, but finding a therapist that can relate to you is a challenge. As a queer, polyamorous, first-generation American woman, I know what it is like to feel misunderstood, underrepresented, and unheard in a therapy room. I welcome individuals with intersectional identities and work hard to provide affirming care to LGBTQIA, BIPOC, BDSM/kink, and consensual non-monogamous individuals, relationships, and communities.
I utilize non-violent communication and creativity to assist a trauma-informed approach to counseling, additionally pulling from attachment-based and existential views. I am strongly influenced by the power of the mind-body connection and my priority is to provide accessible tools to help my clients meet their goals and embrace themselves in the process.
Finding a therapist is easy, but finding the RIGHT therapist is hard. If you think I am a good fit for you, please reach out for a free 15 minute phone consultation. You deserve all that you desire and so much more, including a therapist that feels good to talk to.
