My Ideal Client

I work with both individuals and relationships. I most enjoy working with people who hold curiosity about their relational and sexual selves, and are interested in deconstructing the embedded social, cultural and familial narratives that can impede our wholeness in these areas. I tend to work with creatives, those in the LGBTQIA+ community, folks in non-traditional and non-monogamous relational orientations, and people in helping or healing professions.

My Approach to Helping

I believe that therapy can reveal important insights into our adaptations to trauma and attachment patterns and can guide us to more open-hearted connection and empowerment in our relationships and lives. As a therapist, I utilize a body-centered lens that guides clients through mindful exploration of their experience to access the ways we hold thoughts, beliefs, and patterns. Through this work, we are able to move towards embodiment and choice to create lasting change. In my work as a therapist, I primarily utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and attachment models and practice through mindful-experiential and somatic-based approaches. I also believe in the power of clarifying needs and incorporate Non-Violent Communication (NVC) into my work. I am proficient but not fluent in Spanish, and welcome clients who would like to work with me at that level or to explore working in both English and Spanish.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My path toward relational and sex therapy began as a teenager teaching peer sex education in high school classrooms. I believe that access to empowerment in our bodies and in our sexuality has powerful and liberatory potential. Social justice has always been important to me, and in my work as a therapist I continue to humbly commit to work towards anti-racist healing. I also am a student of how our contexts and identities shape our embodied experiences, from experiences of oppression to our greatest strengths. It is important for me to locate myself as a white, cisgendered queer person currently living without a disability and from a middle class financial background.
