Personal pronouns: they, them, theirs

As a sex-positive Marriage and Family Therapist, I specialize in working with individuals, couples, poly systems, and families to improve relating and to sharpen abilities to compassionately and respectfully speak truthfully to one another.

In one way or another, we’re all working towards healthy relationships—whether with our self, romantic or platonic relationships, or families that we’ve created or emerged from. I believe that with intention, support, effort, and practice we can create the healthy relationships we desire, and grow into people who can leave connections that no longer serve us.

You are more than any one role you occupy or relationship you are in.  Recognizing all of who you are and finding ways to integrate the diverse aspects of your experience helps in the process of healing from trauma, growing beyond limits, resolving conflicts and approaching wholeness.  Together, therapy is one way to create an inclusive space for the many complex identities you hold.

A little about me. I am:

  • a systemic therapist with a strength-based approach.
  • a sex-positive therapist. I encourage my clients to develop healthy ways of relating to their sexuality and sexual practices, without added shame.
  • an LGBQIA-affirming therapist.
  • a trans-supportive, genderqueer, non-binary, and gender non-conforming ally.
