My passion lies in working with non-traditional relationships and lifestyles, and with people who choose alternative relationship structures. I primarily work with polyamorous and LGBTQIA+ clients within Gay, Leather, and kink communities. I help individuals and couples develop both their individual identities and their identities in their relationships, guiding clients as they endeavor to identify their own struggles and work through them.
My Background and Approach
My approach to therapy is trauma-informed, social justice oriented, inclusive, and grounded in a humanistic framework. I have specialized training as a Holistic Sex Therapist. I help people live connected, authentic, and holistic lives.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I’m a rain loving, urban-dwelling Portlander. Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in the trades as a DC power engineer and general contractor. In my spare time I enjoy building things, being snobbish about craft beer, B-grade shark movies, and doing outdoorsie things. I value serving people through action, chosen family, and being accepted for who you are, where you are.
