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 and 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.

I earned an MA in Counseling and Expressive Arts Therapy from California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), and have completed San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI)’s sex educator training. I also hold an MFA in fine art and have been a practicing artist for over 20 years. Currently, I am in a year-long training with Dr. Ellyn Bader on the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy, which integrates attachment, differentiation, and neuroscience.
