About My Clients

I serve 3 main types of clients: 1) This client has believed they've been in the wrong body their whole life. I help them come to terms with their preferred gender and build their confidence to live their life fully. 2) This client was raised in the church and likely has been negatively affected by purity culture. They are realizing how being taught "sex is bad" can be severely impairing. 3) This client is pregnant/a new parent and is freaking out about this little stranger they popped out.

My Background and Approach

I have my Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of St. Thomas in Minneapolis, MN. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and a board-approved clinical supervisor for LPCC's and LPC's. I am a Certified Perinatal Mental Health Therapist. I have advanced training in sex therapy. I am pursuing a certification from the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). I use CBT, DBT, and mindfulness. This just means that I help you to connect your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, and then teach you how to work through each crisis. I love using positive affirmations and self-esteem exercises. I want you to know your worth by the time we finish our work together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Cis/Het, but very connected with the LGBTQIA+ community. Very comfortable with queerness + Christianity. I like to think I'm funny. Sometimes I feel like I survive on memes and froyo. I grew up in the church, and so I have firsthand knowledge of how damaging purity culture can be. I know how hard it can be to talk about sex, especially when the church/society has had negative messages about your sexual orientation/expression/gender identity. I am sex & kink-positive, always welcoming to clients who are LGBTQ (whether open about it or not), and love working with poly/non-monogamous clients. As far as PMAD clients, I love helping clients out who have experienced birth trauma, infertility, and postpartum anxiety/OCD.

  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Christianity
