My Approach

I believe that you are the expert of your life, and my role is to hold space for your fears, pain, accomplishments and personal strengths. My goal is to create a collaborative relationship so we can explore your authentic self while working to resolve underlying trauma, unpack socially-constructed gender roles, and facilitate an understanding of sexual and relationship patterns. We will work to develop tangible skills to reclaim your sexual self and prioritize your pleasure. I will be able to provide Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) very soon, as I am completing the training by May 3rd, 2020. It is important to me that we find what works for you, so I truly value your feedback in the therapeutic process.

My Background

I'm an enthusiastic, affirming, ridiculously supportive Clinical Social Work Associate (CSWA) working toward becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I am currently completing my Sex Therapy Certification through the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Oregon. I'm trained and experienced to treat a variety of challenges including sexuality, grief/loss, life transitions, relationships (including BDSM, fetish/kink, non-monogamy), depression, anxiety, and complex trauma including sexual violence, stalking and sexual harassment. Trauma can impact your sexuality and relationships, this is a particular area of focus for me. Reconnecting to your sexual-self after experiencing trauma can seem overwhelming, and my goal is to heal your past wounds so that you can experience pleasure and secure relationships in the future.
