About My Clients

I love working with folx in the queer community; particularly surrounding gender, sexuality, and relationships. As a gender affirming therapist, I work closely with those seeking support and exploration with gender transition. In addition, I specialize in working with ethical non-monogamy, polyamory, and open relationships. I offer support that is friendly, non-judgmental, knowledgable, and humorous. I believe therapy is most effective when myself and clients show up with all our human-ness.

My Background and Approach

I have a Masters in Couples and Family Therapy from University of Colorado, Denver. I have worked extensively with individuals and relationship systems to help folks further explore and gain awareness of themselves and others. I believe therapy to be a very collaborative process. I offer space and presence for my clients to feel seen, heard, and felt. Together we can find new ways of being in this world that feel more adaptive and congruent with who we are and who we want to be. This process has no definitive road map, it's rarely linear, and we may sometimes find ourselves way off the course we originally set out for. It will at times be challenging and painful, and also transformative and joyful. I see my job as helping my clients hold both to be true simultaneously.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a queer transman, I have felt the impact of both seeing a therapist that could not empathize with my identities, and the power of one who could. The ways in which we identify ourselves tell the world who we are. When that feels confusing, it's hard to know how to navigate that. As a clinician I view myself as a lifelong learner. I do my own therapy work, consult with others, and pursue trainings that further my ability to understand my client's experiences.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
