Therapy With Me

Between enduring a pandemic, human rights violations, and job/financial strains added onto what is ongoing in our personal lives, this has been a time of high stress. Therapy is a wonderful tool for dealing with stressors we face regularly. I support to people dealing with depression, anxiety, relational distress, chronic illness and sexual concerns. We can work together to explore the issues you are facing and how we can best approach them together. Healthy relationships with our family, friends, and support systems throughout our lives inform our ability to cope, process, and can help us grow. Therapy can be an essential part of your support network. I will work to create a safe space by listening with empathy and working with you on issues without judgment. Our cultural identities and socio-economic systems have a great impact on our lives and play a significant role in our mental health. I am enthusiastic about working with people in all kinds of relationship structures, sex workers, people of all sizes, and people of all races, genders, and sexual identities. My therapeutic style is person-centered, social justice oriented, and integrative. 

Specialities include, but are not limited to:

- Intersections of Disability + Sexuality 

- Sexual dysfunction and/or intimacy issues 

- Accommodating behavior or "people pleasing"

- Family of Origin Trauma

- Exploration of sexuality and/or gender

About Me

I am white, fat, queer, kinky, agnostic, disabled (chronic illness) and neurodivergent. In my free time I love crafting, dancing, reading spicy books, playing games, cooking, watching reality TV, picnicking in parks, and hanging out with my partner and two cats.
