About My Clients

I believe that happiness can be found for everyone, but it does take some work, and maybe some help! I’ve been working with survivors of trauma since 2012, and am comfortable assisting folks struggling with anxiety and depression. I specialize in working with either individuals or couples/groups in alternative lifestyles, particularly those in open or ethical non-monogamous relationships and/or BDSM/kink.

My Background and Approach

I favor CBT-focused techniques (thoughts +feelings+behaviors) with elements of neurobiology and psycholinguistics, or, the analysis of what words mean and how we use them. I embrace discomfort, which allows for growth, and rely heavily on skill work especially in regards to communication and coping. I help clients look at patterns in thoughts, feelings, and behavior so that we can break them. I am trauma knowledgeable, kink knowledgeable, and ethical non-monogamy knowledgeable, which means when you share space with me, the only thing you'll need to teach me about is yourself.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I look at therapy like this: the two of us stand together at the beginning of a road. You're the bricklayer. I'm the person handing you the bricks. You create and choose where your path leads, and occasionally I offer up directions to consider. Your road gets smoother and smoother as you get better at laying the bricks. We build your map a session at a time, until you feel like you've made the road long enough and are comfortable walking it alone. As a therapist, I acknowledge that I'm impacted and influenced by my experiences, choices, and values which include: I consider myself heterosexual and biromantic; I am actively polyamorous; I am active in the kink scene; I am a survivor of complex emotional trauma, and have GAD, MDD, and CPTSD; I come from a middle class background; I am a U.S. citizen; I am plus-sized; I am the child of a military father; I am a very proud cat mom. I believe that Black Lives Matter; masks save lives; and trans rights are human rights.
