My Ideal Client

I love working with anyone who is ready to do the work. My strongest areas of interest and expertise include ethical non-monogamy, adult attachment, adoption, grief, and healing from trauma. Supporting folks to find more fulfilling relationships is a lifelong passion, whether you are solo and dating, in long term partnership(s), figuring things out with family members, or seeking a deeper connection to self.

My Approach to Helping

I believe every individual is the expert of their lived experience and is equipped with the resources they need to grow, change, and thrive, and I also believe we all need a little help to get there sometimes. I am here to walk alongside you in your journey, offering empathy, challenging harmful beliefs, and providing tools for personal growth. I view relationships through an attachment lens and explore emotions as a way to better understand ourselves and others. As a trauma survivor, I have a real understanding of how past experiences can shape our current realities, and the transformative power of processing old wounds. We will work together to create a safe and brave space where you can practice noticing and disrupting patterns that aren't serving you, identifying your needs, setting boundaries, and improving communication. While most of our work is done in session, I also like to offer reading and practices on topics like mindfulness, self-compassion, and nervous system regulation.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am committed to equity and inclusion, both personally and professionally. I am LGBTQIA+, and gender affirming. I am sex/kink positive welcome all relationship configurations. I am an intersectional feminist and value all types of diversity including ethnicity, race, size, gender, sexual orientation, class, religion, and abilities. I offer some sliding scale spots with priority given to BIPOC, and can also try to help you find a therapist of color if you prefer - just ask!
