About My Clients

My clients often come from backgrounds where a parent or caregiver was either absent, distracted, or using drugs or alcohol. They were deemed "the responsible one" who often in some form had to manage their parents or their siblings in either a practical or emotional capacity. They are usually incredibly capable, responsible and tuned into their surroundings. They can often be more aware of the feelings and needs of others than they are of their own.

My Background and Approach

I am certified in Perinatal Mental Health and have a Bacherlor of Arts in Biology and a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology. I am currently earning a Doctor of Philosophy in Clinical Sexology. I view sexual and reproductive wellness holistically and understand how personal or relational issues can have deeper roots in the past. I ask questions about the details and look at the whole picture so we can truly understand what is going on and then change it for the better.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone deserves joy and pleasure to live a fulfilling life. I tend to be direct, forward and lighthearted in my approach. I believe therapy is a place to laugh as well as cry. I am an LGBTQ ally and pro-choice.
