About My Clients

While I am able to work with a number of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, work stress, and more, my primary focus of practice is sexuality. Sexual expression, sexuality and gender identity are key factors in the well being of any individual. We are living in a world where we are not encouraged to explore our sexuality and inner most desires and I want to change that. Whether exploring Kink/BDSM, Swing Lifestyles, Consensual Non Monogamy and more, I am here to help.

My Background and Approach

I believe that the best relationships form from authenticity and understanding. I approach therapy from a perspective that we are all humans; flawed, misunderstood and fundamentally seeking connection and love. I consider myself a modern clinician, constantly evolving and adapting to meet the needs of my clients. My approach may be eclectic and I am not one to shy away from the occasional (or not so occasional) curse word but I am passionate about what I do and believe that quality, honest, and deep work can be life changing.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
