Our Ideal Client

You are in a relationship with your partner(s) or a part of a family unit. You have gotten to a place you never thought you could get to with your loved one(s), you feel unheard, unloved, undervalued but you love them and that is why you are here seeking me, a couple, polycule, and family therapist. I have been where you are now and it is overwhelming, painful, and discouraging. But I am here to tell you this happens for so many people and that there is hope and a path to where you want to be.

What I Specialize In

I work with many LGBTQIA2S+ folx and couples using an affirmative approach with empathy, curiosity, and compassion. I employ Emotionally Focused Couple therapy that has been proven to work for couples and has empirical evidence to back it, along with other modalities such as The Gottman Method, EFT for individuals, and Internal Family Systems.

My Approach to Helping

As a therapist, I will challenge you, push you, hold you, and show up for you the way others may not have. We will foster change, create growth, find empowerment, and learn true acceptance. Come as you are and let me be your catalyst.

Issues I Treat


  • LGBTQ Issues External link

    I work with many LGBTQIA2S+ around a variety of concerns. My approach is affirming and I create a safe place for you to be or learn who your authentic self is in a nonjudgmental environment. Our work is always going to be centered around empathy and safety, but also be challenging and rewarding.
