About My Clients

I am proud to be a queer and neurodivergent therapist and am passionate about providing affirming therapy to LGBTQIA+ clients and those exploring their identities. As a sex-positive sexuality educator, I specialize in providing therapy for those interested in exploring their intimate relationships, sexuality, and sexual experience. I love working with open-minded folks who are seeking personal growth and reflection. I am providing exclusively Telehealth for Missouri clients at this time.

My Background and Approach

My background includes sexuality education, wilderness- and adventure-therapy, oncology grief counseling, residential psychiatric treatment, and visual arts. My approach to therapy is holistic, warm, trauma-informed, non-pathologizing, and relational. I aim to create a space in which you can show up fully as yourself, and I engage actively and collaboratively in sessions. We will explore, question, and get curious together. While developing trust takes time, I ask clients to be candid, open, and truthful with me, and in turn, I endeavor to take a transparent approach to therapy with my clients.  I draw from a variety of psychotherapy modalities and frameworks, including Polyvagal Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Feminist Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. Together we will establish your goals for therapy, and we will check in regularly to assure you feel satisfied with your progress towards the changes you are working on.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe in showing up in the therapy space as a guide and collaborator, and that clients and therapists can co-create a safe container for self-exploration. My practice is LGBTQIA+ affirming, affirming of polyamory and consensual non-monogamy, kink-aware, and sex-worker affirming. Sex-positivity is central to my value system. I believe that understanding the impacts of oppressive systems, such as racism, homophobia, ableism, transphobia, and fat-phobia, is a critical part of the therapy process, and I integrate discussion about oppression and privilege in the therapy room. I believe that, at best, therapy can be a space for personal healing, growth, and discovery, while simultaneously moving us towards deeper community connection and collective liberation.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
