My Ideal Client

My clients include a variety of cultures, sexualities, genders, and abilities. Much of my work is with adults in varying relational structures and I hold a keen interest in working with those who are exploring sex and intimacy within their relationships. I support individuals who are on their own journeys of healing past wounding, trauma, illness, and grief/loss. I am honored to accompany clients first stepping into the therapeutic space and those who are reconnecting with past work.

What I Specialize In

I was privileged to grow up in a culture of sex positivity, which has supported me in forming a secure relationship with exploring sex and sexuality. I view sexuality as something that is uniquely ours to define and honor the dynamic, fluid nature of our sexual identities and experiences. I strongly believe in the importance of a consent based approach, amplifying sexual autonomy, and encouraging curiosity and open mindedness in sexual exploration. I utilize models such as Sensate Focus and the Good Enough Sex, to support individuals and partners in creating unique and fulfilling connections with their sexual identities and in their sexual relationships. I especially enjoy working with partners who are new to parenthood or are experiencing chronic illness, and are looking to reconnect and rediscover sex and intimacy in their relationships.

My Values as a Therapist

At my core, I believe that we are all emotional beings who are influenced by our connections to the people and world around us. My own upbringing was shaped by valuing social justice, understanding the importance of my personal relationships, and creating meaningful connections to my community. Not only as a therapist but as a human being, I enjoy connecting to others through the power of storytelling. Whether our stories are similar or different, I believe sharing them furthers human connection and understanding. It is through the fabric of our relationships that we are able to make larger impacts on our communities and world.
