My Approach

Your body has been through enough: overworked, cast aside, shamed and devalued. My counseling practice centers your body as the vehicle for emotional healing and your gateway to pleasure. I use body-based mindfulness practices to help you heal trauma, deepen relationships, and empower inner sovereignty with an enhanced understanding of your innermost truth. You will learn skills of inner awareness and the ability to meet your needs and the needs of others both physically and emotionally. Individual or couples sessions can look like typical talk therapy enhanced by body awareness skills including breath work, guided visualization, movement, or sensory processing depending on your desires. However, if you aren’t a talker, you’ve come to the right place. I will never ask you to force words on an experience that just can’t be described – there is no need to. Instead I will help you navigate what your body needs to heal and integrate these parts of you from the inside out.

My Background

No matter what kind of body you have, no matter the color, or age, or the size or your body’s parts and how they work, you were built to feel better than you do right now. All of you is welcome here, even the parts you’d rather hide. I have committed to a life of learning and growth in my personal identity to ensure that I am worthy of providing a container for all types of people to heal, grow, and ignite their passion. I am queer, gender fluid, as well as sex worker, poly and kink friendly, which informs my counseling practice by anchoring the principles of pleasure, body and sex positivity, gender awareness, trust, respect, consent and communication in relationships. While my identity is unique to me, these principles can be valued across all types of people, straight or gay, poly or monogamous, religious or spiritual, young or old. My promise to you is that I will hold space for you to find your truth and help you finally flourish. I wish you the stars, and I hope to hear from you.
