Hello and welcome! I am so glad you are here. As a queer-identified, body-, sex-, kink-, and fat-positive therapist, I welcome all identities, bodies, and partnerships to share the therapeutic space with me. I aim to provide an affirming, empathic, and curious perspective to help clients process their experiences of trauma, marginalization, interpersonal challenges, and identity development.

Our lives are made up of innumerable relationships that influence us in both large and small ways, resulting in a life story that is unique to each person. I see therapy as a highly collaborative space dedicated to exploring how current and previous experiences interact with where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow. Together we can create a foundation of genuine connection, trust, and acceptance.

My approach is warm, inviting, collaborative, and affirming to help folks feel less alone on their journeys. The foundation we co-create in therapy will allow us to identify tools, strategies, and skills (new or familiar) that can help you shape a life path that feels authentically your own. It takes a tremendous amount of strength to seek help in a world that does not reward those who ask for assistance, so I feel honored by the trust clients have given me and overjoyed to have been a part of their lives.

Education and training experiences have exposed me to a wide range of modalities, frameworks, settings, populations, and structures, all with their own merits. I choose to approach therapy with an emphasis on authenticity, relational dynamics, and cultural factors, to highlight the uniqueness of those I work with. I welcome folks hoping to work through trauma, explore new or existing identities, understand relationship challenges, or manage depressive symptoms.

I look forward to hearing your story and working together to shape a life path that makes you feel at home. If this resonates with you, please reach out to schedule your first appointment with me!
