Welcome!

“Allow yourself to become intimately connected with all your parts.” -Virginia Satir

Do you struggle in your relationships? What could it be like to intentionally cultivate a relationship where you are always seen and valued? With the right fit, that’s what happens in therapy. I will accept you exactly as you are, while making space for the person you are growing into.

It takes courage to shine light on the parts of you that want to be seen—this may include (but not be limited to): relationships and intimacy; grief and loss; anxiety and ADHD. With a spirit of play and creativity, I will encourage you to engage your sense of wonder, so we can identify and build on your unique strengths.

Words can be hard to access at times. In addition to talking, we may also use visual and movement arts, sand tray, writing, ritual, and body awareness, as we explore what it means to be you.

You deserve to feel love and belonging. As your therapist, I will invite you into a deeper and more rewarding relationship with yourself.

Using a culturally sensitive lens, I love working with individuals of all ethnic, racial, and spiritual backgrounds, along the gender and sexuality spectrum, from teens to elders. I am poly-aware and BDSM/kink-knowledgeable, and sex worker friendly.

I am happy to provide a free 20-minute phone consultation to learn more about how I can help.

About Me

I work relationally from a feminist, oppression-aware perspective. I work with individuals—from teens to elders—along the spectrum of gender and sexual orientation, in both traditional and non-traditional relationships. I am poly-aware, BDSM/kink-knowledgeable, and sex worker friendly.  In particular, I welcome creative folks, helpers, and outliers who have tried therapy but didn’t feel like their therapist “got” them.
