Finding a therapist who you feel comfortable with and who fits your needs can be a challenging task. My hope is that the information provided here will allow you to move closer to finding the therapist that is right for you, or continuing your search elsewhere. Therapy can be scary, vulnerable, difficult, exciting, unexpected, rewarding, and completely life changing. I’m here for all of that and whatever else our work brings us.
I love being a therapist. While I can serve and help many people with a variety of life’s challenges, I am currently working towards a certification in Sex Therapy. I want to specialize my training to work with LGBQAIP, Trans, GNC, Non-binary and 2 spirit communities. I work with individuals, couples, and 2-plus relationships. I am Kinky, BDSM, Poly friendly and hecka affirming. As I personally identify with many of the above-mentioned identities, I can provide therapy and expertise from a lived experience.

I have a shelter dog named Louie. It is not really a story, but he has absolutely no interest in leaving us. We accidentally left him outside one time for the whole night and he was patiently waiting for us at the front patch in the morning.
