Clients come to me looking for a therapist who specializes in sex and communication and who is knowledgable in working with the polyam/open, kink/BDSM, and LGBTQIA + communities, because therapy should be a place where you feel understood and supported.
​​You've been experiencing sexual issues recently or maybe even for some time. You may be experiencing erectile difficulties and pain during sex. You’ve tried everything you’ve found on the internet but still, it's not working how you want. It's frustrating, isolating, infuriating and confusing. It may even be difficult to remember a time when things didn’t feel this way. But now, you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to break the pattern and have your body and brain on the same page. You're ready for a more fulfilled sex life. And most of all, you’re ready to feel more connected in your sexuality!

We all come up against thoughts or experiences that push us to the limit of what is comfortable, urging us to dig deeper for a way to connect with a sense of meaning or purpose in life. These periods of transition threaten our regular patterns of being, and for that reason life can feel messy and downright frightening for a while. What may have once been a comfort can suddenly trigger sadness, and what was known may be unknown. These challenges, while intensely uncomfortable, can create openings in our hearts and minds, inviting us to show up in life with courage and flexibility.

Okay. Here's the thing. Nobody really knows how therapy works, or why some people get better with one approach and some another. What we do know is that if you connect with your therapist, and if you really commit to digging in and doing the work, healing and change can happen, and things can get better. And I can help you with that. I'll listen to you. I'll pay close attention. I'll meet you where you're at, with empathy and compassion and even some humor. And I'll tell you the truth.

Therapy can help one learn how to navigate the challenges of life with more ease, balance, and compassion. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, stress, and/or other mood concerns, life transitions, relationship challenges, grief and loss, or vague discontentment with life, therapy can help you access and expand your deepest and most wise, internal resources. From this steadiness, we are able to relate to all aspects of our lives with more clarity, confidence, wisdom, and compassion for ourselves and others.

We all arrive on this Earth with a plan. Sometimes the plan gets muddled, confusing and scary. Sometimes our labeling of these experiences as “bad” can create stagnation in growth and deny us the insight that we need in order to stretch. This is where our work comes into play. Growth is constant. Growth is never ending, especially during challenging times/barriers. However, we only grow when we embrace and feel curious about the uncomfortability. I work with adolescents & young adults in the LGBTQIA + community. Folks of all races and ethnicities are welcome!

My clinical work has consisted of treating a variety of clients with different backgrounds and concerns. I am particularly interested and experienced in treating interpersonal relationship problems, self-esteem concerns, family of origin issues, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, codependency and LGBTQ issues. I enjoy facilitating individual and couples therapy with adults. As a compassionate, yet assertive clinician, I work with clients to meet self-identified goals. I view myself more as a guide and mentor than expert. My clients have described me as "down to earth" and "personable."

I work with people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ID, survivors of trauma, LGBT clients, children, adolescents, young adults, college students, and families.
Note: My practice is full at this time; I am not taking new clients or adding to my waiting list: I believe that metaphor is the carrier of deep truths about the self, and the door to meaning and growth. As a therapist, I listen for metaphor in verbal and non-verbal interactions with clients. I was trained in Expressive Therapy and also use a developmental approach. I am also fully trained in EMDR. I base all of my work with children, teens, families, and adults in a grounding in normal development, taking into account developmental stages as I look at issues and problems presented.

I work over telehealth with individuals that are LGBTQIA + (while they may or may not identify as being a part of this "community", for sake of ease of description, I use this acronym). Often people come to me with depression, trauma, anxiety, relationship issues, and eating disorders. They want to live with less shame and more ease through out their days and lives. They want to be able to feel safe, seen, heard, and understood as much as possible. I am passionate about serving these marginalized folks and acknowledge intersectionality of various identities within each individual. Sliding scale options are full at this time.

Women's health (teens, non-binary, cis and trans ), hormonal issues, gender identity, sexuality, trauma and attachment issues, caregivers' and creatives' issues are all areas of special interest to me.
I'M CURRENTLY FULL AND CAN'T TAKE REFERRALS. Life can often feel difficult, confusing or overwhelming. Seeking help and finding the right counseling relationship can be challenging as well. My goal is to help you connect to your own inner guidance system. As an existentialist and a feminist counselor, it is my belief that people need to find a sense of purpose and meaning within themselves because the world outside doesn't always make sense. The stories we have told ourselves or been told about ourselves can have a significant impact on how we feel. The result can be depression, anxiety, anger, hopelessness, or confusion.

I’m a firm believer that everybody has the internal resources to live an authentic and fulfilling life. Sometimes, we have experiences that makes it challenging to access those resources, or our coping strategies that once worked well are no longer serving their purpose. My goal is to create a therapeutic space that is non-judgmental and safe, ultimately helping clients find insight into their lives.

We could all benefit from support at times. Someone who is willing to listen. Someone to provide an outside perspective. We can work together to help you stay connected to your positive parenting skills, your need to find calm or perhaps work through a past trauma. You may be at the beginning of a journey, in the middle or further along. Wherever you are, connect with someone who provides encouragement and perspective. Children and families are welcome! We live in an ever changing world. Let's do something to help strengthen our foundation...for life!

I have experience with a diversity of issues including anxiety, depression and relationship concerns. I am a trained depth psychotherapist (Jungian-oriented), and am concerned with addressing symptoms at their root cause. I balance this approach by offering avenues of relief from symptoms in the present. Easing the burden of suffering in the here-and-now allows us to engage more fully with the work of addressing original causes, and thereby contributes to long-term resolution.
