"Owning your story is the bravest thing you'll ever do."

What can I expect from therapy?
With a warm but direct approach I encourage a client in their personal growth and development. I utilize an integrative mix of therapeutic modalities, with a strong basis in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution focused and strengths based theories. This means I tailor sessions to the individual needs of the clients.
My practice interests include:
Individual & Couples Therapy
I am interested in providing assistance to couples/individuals that are seeking sexual and gender identity growth. Areas of interest under this umbrella include working with LGBTQ people, consensually non-monogamous relationships, and I am a kink competent therapist.
Deciding to seek out relationship therapy can be big decision for any dynamic. I hope to make that journey easier to navigate by helping clients to improve communication, connection, and their sex lives.
I look forward to assisting you in development of goals for your personal and relationship growth.
