Therapy


Picture this: therapy sessions that feel less like stuffy appointments and more like insightful conversations over a cup of coffee. As a seasoned therapist specializing in the intricate dance of diverse individuals and relationships, I bring a splash of humor, a dash of wisdom, and a whole lot of heart to our sessions.

As an inclusive, sex-positive, multiculturally-informed therapist, I specialize in creating affirming spaces for sexual and gender minorities (LGBTQ+), ethnic-racial minorities, and folks exploring consensual non-monogamy, kink, and alternative lifestyles. Whatever your background, identity, or relationship status, you’re welcome here with open arms and an open heart. So, whether you’re seeking support for intimacy issues, navigating life’s transitions, or simply craving a space to explore your true self, I’m here to cheer you on every step of the way.

Join me in rediscovering the joy of genuine connection and self-discovery!

Thriving with clients who seek understanding and welcome compassionate, straight-from-the-heart feedback, I want to empower you to break down barriers and rediscover intimacy with yourself and those around you. Whether you’re a novice setting out on a new path or a seasoned explorer with tales to tell, your unique journey shapes your authentic life. In therapy, we challenge the narratives that hold you back, empowering you to reclaim control and embrace the full power of your story once more.
