About My Clients

You feel alone in your relationship. You want to reconnect but don't know how. Your ability to communicate with one another needs a tune up. You are in pain, stressed, and unsure what to think about the future of your relationship. Your inner voice is pushing you to focus on yourself as a means to work toward deeper connections with friends and partners. You are overwhelmed at the thought of setting boundaries with the people in your life and end up resentfully complying to keep the peace.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in working with sexuality, gender, and relationships through an anti oppressive attachment based lens. I am trained to work with couples/relationships and see many 2SLGBTQIA+ and non monogamous/polyamorous relationships. I provide Trans, Non-Binary, and Queer affirmative care. My training is in Marriage and Family Therapy, which basically means I have extensive training in working with more than one person in the room as well as considering relational context even when I am seeing an individual person. I practice relationship/marriage/premarital therapy through an attachment based lens and am trained in The Developmental Model of couples work. I have also completed Gottman Level 1 and incorporate that training when useful. I am trained in Brainspotting and find the clients seeking to process difficult experiences and/or move through areas in which they feel stuck benefit from this modality. I provide sex therapy through sex and pleasure positive lenses.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about meeting clients where they are, and remaining curious. I believe you are the expert of your own life, I show up authentically and model humility (Im not afraid to make mistakes, be human, and keep learning). I am radical not only in the ways I provide therapy but in how I relate to other humans in my everyday life. I am a harm reductionist and those ideals are central to how I see the world and work as a therapist, though I do not provide substance abuse specific therapy. I believe we are not the worst things we have done, and center transformative justice. I find hope in the struggles that I am in solidarity with around the world, people fighting against oppressive systems. I am unapologetically queer, non-binary, neurodivergent and come from a working class background. I am white and benefit in ways I will never fully understand or be able to be accountable for. I also benefit as a settler on these lands. I believe Land Back and Reparations are a start.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
