My Approach

Are you someone who's been having problems in your sex life or relationships? Have you struggled to find a therapist who speaks your language and understands your community and lifestyle? Are social justice and activism important to you? It can be hard sometimes to feel like we can be our full selves with our healthcare providers. We worry about judgment, so we leave parts of ourselves out. As a licensed psychologist specializing in non-traditional relationships, I can tell you that the more honest and real you are about who you are, the easier it is to learn and grown. My work with clients is playful, deep, challenging, systemically aware, strengths-focused, and action-oriented. In short, my goal is to help you feel seen, to help you to face what's holding you back, and to put your challenges in context. My practice is pretty full, but I do have a waitlist. I work in person in PDX/SF or on video chat. Book a free 30-minute phone consultation today -

My Background

My journey to this place in my career has been a winding one. While I've always had a passion for sexual and gender minorities, my 5 years as a therapist in the Army forced me to broaden my experiences and training. I've worked with concerns from sleep issues to first break schizophrenia and everything in between. Working with a wide variety of clients and problems has helped me approach every client from a space of empathy and understanding; no matter how "out there" or weird you may worry you are, I promise I won't judge you. I completed specialized training in sex therapy at the University of Guelph. I'm also trained in all 3 evidence-based treatments for PTSD and in DBT skills. My work has been featured in Playboy, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, CBC Radio,, AskMen, Marie Claire, Psych Central, and Dope Magazine, as well as on multiple podcasts and other web articles. I've presented at conferences and taught sexand relationship classes all over North America.
