My Approach to Helping

Sex-positive, LGBTQIA+ affirming, poly & ENM-friendly, BDSM & kink-knowledgeable therapy for anyone who is curious about themselves!

Are you looking for a therapist who is sex-positive, LGBTQIA+ affirming, poly-friendly, and kink-knowledgeable? If you are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, struggling with anxiety or depression, feeling stuck in patterns of people-pleasing or perfectionist thinking, healing from trauma, exploring your identity, or navigating a change in your life or relationships, you deserve a supportive, non-judgmental place to sort through it all.

I utilize art therapy, EMDR, somatic techniques, and mindfulness to help people manage stress and overwhelm, understand themselves better, improve their relationships, and change unhelpful patterns to find balance in their lives. I help people break free from old patterns of shame and anxiety, heal from negative past experiences, and find balance in their lives. My clients leave therapy feeling confident in themselves, stronger in their relationships and communication skills, skilled at managing anxiety, and excited to embrace the life and adventures that await them.

Fun fact about me: I have a background in visual arts, and previously worked in the film and television industry for a number of years before I decided to become a therapist. Now, I love that I get to work with clients in the industry or other creative professions - or people who are partnered with those in the industry, as I have been on both sides and know the stress that creative projects, freelance work, or long days on set can put on individuals and relationships!

My therapeutic style is client-centered, trauma-informed, and warm but direct. Laughter, tears, swearing, dark humor, movie references, and stories about your pets are all welcome in sessions with me! If you’d like to get started or you have any questions, I’d love to hear from you. Reach out to schedule a free 15 minute consultation!
