Practicing Since: 2020
I’m so glad you’re here- it takes courage to ask for help, and I’m honored to be considered. I enjoy working with a range of clients and specialize in assisting individuals and couples who are neurodivergent, LGBTQ+, and/or adult survivors of complex trauma and their partners navigate anxiety, depression, communication issues, and cultivate healthy sexuality. I am also kink/BDSM affirming and poly/ethical non-monogamy affirming.
I don’t know about you, but I didn’t grow up in a sex-positive household, nor did my family of origin equip me with the tools I needed to build a relationship with myself that was expansive enough to outweigh the messages of shame I inherited from society about my sexual identity. . As a Pleasure Activist, I love to help people move from shame-based to a pleasure-centered relationship to their sexuality and see this work as integral to collective liberation.
I’m passionate about supporting survivors of sexual abuse (and their partners in a couples therapy context). My goal is to help you heal, find a sense of relief from the way trauma impacts you, build up compassion and confidence in yourself, find pleasurable ways to connect with your body & sexuality, and integrate your trauma into a fulfilling and empowered life.
