I recognize diversity in sexuality as much more than LGBTQ as I practice polyamory-affirmative psychotherapy, kink awareness, and sex positivity without unnecessarily making these identities the focus of treatment.
My approach is warm and enthusiastic providing room for laughter and jokes as well as tears and vulnerability. While holding safe boundaries for my clients, I believe in the power of transparency and being my genuine self in my work with people. I am affirming and open-minded, while encouraging you to try new ideas or behaviors that support your healing.

By creating an empathic, culturally sensitive, LGBTQ+ affirmative therapeutic space, I will help you feel supported as you find and follow your own path.
Sometimes the best thing you can give yourself is the chance to be heard, tell your story and share your experience. In the current climate it may be especially hard for you to find the support you need. Maybe you have experienced trauma that seems to affect your work or relationships. Daily stressors can compound and impact your wellbeing, leaving you feeling distressed, anxious, irritable, depressed or overwhelmed. I aim to help you gain new awareness about your feelings and how they relate to current challenges or past experiences, leading to a sense of relief, improved self-acceptance and even curiosity and excitement.

Starting therapy can be intimidating and finding a therapist you click with can seem daunting. The success of these relationships is more than just the sum of a therapist’s qualifications and credentials. Success of therapy is built on trust itself. The difficulties we find in our relationships, and in life itself, can be scary to confront alone but having an ally who we trust can give us the courage to confront those obstacles. Building a therapeutic relationship can be as complicated as any relationship, yet the benefits of the work we both invest shows in the personal growth you are then rewarded.
