About My Clients

Do you feel like you have to wear a different mask for every area of your life? Can you express your sexuality with your friends, but have to hide it with your family? You may feel there isn't a way to move out of this paradox, or like every area of your life needs to change and it's too overwhelming to even start. You may feel like your sexuality and spirituality are oil and water, never to be mixed. I help people integrate themselves, especially in the two areas of sexuality and spirituality.

My Background and Approach

People often have everything they need to get un-stuck, it is simply too hard to see how to get out. Especially when dealing with religious trauma, unsupportive families, or two areas that seem opposed such as being Gay, and wanting to practice a faith. Every part of you belongs. I believe in working together with you to help you transform yourself into what you want when stuck. I use an adaptable approach to fit every person and the unique human being that they are. Sometimes this includes art or movement, writing or speaking, exploring or resting, process or content, and it almost always includes humor.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Every human being has parts of themselves they try to fit together. We may have a spiritual life, sexuality or relationships that seem unreconcilable. The edges of our different parts may rub against each other, creating friction and problems, often mental health problems. Sometimes we cannot fully accept ourselves, and others cannot either. Or, society tells us we don't make sense or match up. Every person deserves the right to live fully and freely as themselves. No matter who you are, or what makes you uniquely you. If you want to learn more about how I can help and see if we would be a good fit, send me a message via text or email, or give me a call.
