I work with individuals and couples 18 years and older experiencing challenges around sexuality, gender identity or gender roles, and within their relationships. I counsel from a framework of anti-oppression and intersectional feminism and I support people of all genders and sexual orientations. I am also happy to work with people in non-conforming relationships such as open relationships, swinging, and who are polyamorous. In addition, I work with people experiencing anxiety, depression, and who are working through trauma. I hold a Master of Science in Counseling Psychology and I am a registered nurse.

I use a range of modalities including non-violent communication and mindfulness, motivational interviewing, somatic therapy, reality therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy while counseling from a person-centered approach. I apply concepts from John and Julie Gottman and Esther Perel in my work with couples.

I strive to facilitate self-understanding, reduce client shame, and promote self-acceptance. People I've worked with have expressed that I provide a non-judgmental space for self-reflection, which has allowed them to feel fully accepted when working through difficult themes. I enjoy supporting people as they learn to better understand themselves.
