My Approach to Helping

Finding the right therapist is really difficult, going through profile after profile, certification after certification. In the end, it's all about who is the right person for you. If you aren't seeking the "live laugh love" therapist, I may just be the right person for you. I integrate a "bottom-up and top-down" approach, meaning somatic methods ("bottom-up" part of development) so that we can get to the "top-down" part of brain development, which is the cognitive part. I approach treatment from a deeply trauma-informed lens. As well I passionately work with the LGBTQIA++, kinkbdsm, and ethically non-monogamous communities.
