Psychotherapist
LGBTQIA+, Kink/BDSM/Poly, Trauma
LMSW

As a queer identifying practitioner implementing an intersectional feminist framework, providing inclusionary environments where one feels welcomed, celebrated and supported is a focal point in my practice. I place emphasis on cultivating meaningful connections with clients that are founded in mindfulness and trust. Using modalities such as somatic psychotherapy, CBT, and motivational interviewing, I prioritize a holistic approach to healing that embodies the mind, body and spirit.

I am particularly passionate about working within the LGBTQIA+ community, with individuals who have experienced gender-based violence and/or sexual trauma, and with couples while using Kink/BDSM/Poly affirming beliefs. As a survivor, I always bring in a trauma lens and center safety and the abolishment of shame in our work.

Taking the time to make space, explore, and reclaim one’s sexual and gender identities is one of the most liberating components of this work. You will always be honored as the expert in your experience, without judgement, and I look forward to being a part of this sacred journey with you.
