My Ideal Client

If you're motivated towards change and ready to put in the hard work (and homework!) it may take to create true and lasting change, this is the therapy office for you. If the idea of having someone who is laid back, knowledgable and in your corner elates you, we're probably a good fit. I'm LGBTQ+ friendly, kink friendly, culturally sensitive and gender affirming.

My Approach to Helping

Full disclosure: I’m not a typical therapist. I don’t want you to sit on the couch (so to speak) for years. My goal will ultimately be to help you change your patterns, tame your relationship issues and/or anxieties, and find your inner spiritual gangster so you can spread your wings and fly like the renegade you are. I’m strength-focused, goal-oriented, empathetic, accepting (yet not afraid to challenge), a little witchy, a little funky, informative, and creative. I strive to blend our narratives and journeys as existential beings together in session (think metaphors, profound imagery and symbolism; dreamwork, mind/body/spirit based exploration) with coping skills from behavioral models. As a Yoga Teacher and Reiki Master, I may also offer to blend energetic healing, breathwork, yoga, herbal wisdom, meditation and even tarot into our work—but ultimately the choice is yours. Where you are at is meaningful; I will meet you there and honor your unique unfolding internal process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Diversity and authenticity are essential to becoming who we truly are, thus I aim to hold safe and inclusive spaces during our journey together. I welcome you here with an open mind & heart.

Techniques I Use


  • Mindfulness-based External link

    Mindfulness can help you slow down and make conscious choices that are in line with your life path; living in a way that is less reactive to the world around you.

  • Holistic External link

    Exploration of non-ordinary states of consciousness and use of mindfulness practices can be an effective way step outside of the ego and gain a wider perspective on one's problems. I often infuse Transpersonal Therapy and Jungian based work into my practice.

  • Narrative  External link

    Using Narrative Therapy, I help you get to know these stories you have and begin to identify what you really believe and value.

  • Gottman Method External link

    When starting with most couples, I offer them a Gottman Relationship Check-up assessment to help me understand, which areas in the relationship are the most pressing.

Issues I Treat


  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I specialize in working with couples who struggle with communication, intimacy, and attachment issues. I work with all relationship types and flavors: LGBTQ, ENM, kink etc.

  • Abuse External link

    Many people are dealing with the aftermath of emotional, psychological, verbal, physical, or spiritual abuse which can stem from many different experiences. Together, we can heal from the trauma of past abuse, and learn coping strategies, identify patterns and red flags, and learn how create healthy boundaries, so that you can stop the cycle of abuse moving forward.

  • Panic External link

    While anxiety and panic attacks are very common and treatable--it doesn't make it any easier to live with. We will work to help you get unstuck from the cycles of anxiety and panic by addressing your own unique experience.

  • Spirituality External link

    I offer transpersonal-influenced therapy work to explore spirituality as well as to help clients heal from spiritual trauma.

  • Gambling Addiction External link

    I have all thee hours required to be a certified gambling counselor and worked with this addiction and many others.
