About My Clients

I specialize my work with communities that identify as LGBQQPIA+, non-binary/GNC/trans folks/2 spirit, and those interested/practicing BDSM/Kink. I work with adult Individuals, couples, and 2 plus relationships (Poly, ENM (Ethical Non-Monogamy, and Swingers). I am currently working towards a certification in Sex Therapy. I receive ongoing consultation and supervision by ASSECT Certified Sex Therapy Supervisor, Wendy Haggerty.

My Background and Approach

I have always been passionate about unapologetic sexual pride, social justice, equality, and women's rights. Naturally, I also love listening and hearing people’s unique stories. I received my graduate degree in Counseling Psychology in 2013, and I worked in a Non-Profit Trans Health Center, County Mental Health, and Private Practice. More recently I have been a Mental Health Therapist for University Students. Recently, I began my private practice business and my certification in Sex Therapy a year ago. It has been a goal of mine since the beginning, and it is like getting another master’s degree (takes 2-3 years). I love learning, and I want to always feel like I am ever growing/evolving as a whole human. I want to specialize my Sex Therapy practice in communities of BDSM and Kink, Polyamory and Ethical Non-Monogamy. Eventually I want to get a PHD in Clinical Sexology and contribute more research in these beautiful communities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As I personally identify with many of the above-mentioned identities, I can provide therapy and expertise from not only a trained clinical perspective, but also a lived experience too. I feel that for too long, sexuality has remained a topic of complete denial, disgrace, disgust, or a way in which, people and groups can be shamed and pathologized. A goal of mine is to continue to advocate for science-based, fact-based accurate, unbiased information related to sexual health, sexual education, and sex therapy. I want to help people learn/explore and love their sexual selves.
