About My Clients
I work with adult individuals and couples/partnered relationships from various backgrounds. I work with clients who have experienced trauma (sexual or non-sexual), are dealing with life transitions, issues regarding sexuality and sensuality, improving emotional awareness, and people wanting to improve/enhance their relationships. While I do work with clients from all backgrounds, I try to make space for those within the kink/BDSM, polyamorous and CNM, and LGBTQIA+ communities.
My Background and Approach
I am a kink-aware and queer identified therapist. My specialties include working with trauma, kink/BDSM, LGBTQIA+, polyamory and CNM and the issues surrounding life and experiences within those communities. I work with pelvic pain, sexual pain, sexual dysfunction. I have worked with many surrounding anxiety, depression, anger, shame, self-esteem, self-worth, grief and loss. Other communities I have worked with are hospice patients and families and Veterans. My therapeutic style encompasses humor, self-disclosure, compassion, and empathy. My therapeutic approach is catered to you and your needs. I will work in collaboration with you to find ways to manage challenges that may arise and cause distress by helping you to set realistic goals and to create steps to achieve those goals, all while allowing you to find empowerment in those actions, bringing hope to tough situations, and enhancing your strengths and resiliency.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I feel that honesty and authenticity are important within ourselves and in our relationships with others. I feel that we are all ever-evolving and need to adapt through learning and growing. However, that can be difficult to do on your own while working through life transitions or from traumatic past experiences. I work in collaboration with you to provide support, resources, tools and skills to help ease you through the challenges you are facing. My goal is to provide a safe and calm sanctuary where you can feel comfortable to share your innermost thoughts and feelings and to work on the distress occurring in your life without worry of being judged.
