About My Clients

Working with those who are dealing with issues related to anxiety, complex trauma, sex, and sexuality, my therapeutic approach incorporates compassion and progress at your pace. I do not work with insurance companies but can offer you paperwork to seek reimbursement for out-of-network services.

My Background and Approach

I am a creative, ethical, LGBTQIA affirming, research-driven, sex-positive therapist who deeply enjoys her career. The couple and family therapy approach, which forms my educational foundation, takes into account the various contexts (family, sexuality, school, religion, culture, ethnicity, race, socio-economic background, & others) that each of us interacts with to offer a better understanding of behaviors and decisions. I use a combination of bottom-up and top-down processing approaches, integrating somatic, relational, cognitive, and client-centered modalities.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a creative person and can utilize creative approaches, if acceptable and appropriate to you, during your therapeutic journey. I have studied performance, improvisational comedy, storytelling, drawing, and puppetry. I value compassion, justice, connection, and humor. Pronouns: She, her, hers
