About My Clients

I specialize in working with couples where one or both partners are Neurodivergent (Autism, ADHD); couples exploring non-monogamy, polyamory, or other alternative relationship models; relationships between 3+ people (polycules, friend groups, etc), and queer couples experiencing recurring conflict.

My Background and Approach

I believe that you are the expert of you. You will never be forced to talk about a tough topic before you're ready. I welcome every emotion, judgement, or fear you bring into the room—even the ones that feel most sensitive or shameful. I'll hold you accountable and draw your attention to patterns and unhelpful behaviors that go unnoticed, and together we'll explore them with curiosity and non-judgement. With couples, I work to identify their problem areas and patterns, and then develop new skills and tools to lead to less explosive fights, more productive conversations and increased connection. I specialize in helping neurodivergent folks learn to better manage their energy and focus while also addressing common concerns of people with ADHD and/or Autistic folks: feelings of low self-esteem, anxiety, burnout, frustration and isolation. As a neurodivergent person myself, I feel passionately about providing neurodivergent-affirming care.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a Health At Every Size (HAES) practitioner, trauma-informed, sex positive, kink positive, and sex worker friendly. I believe that all bodies are good bodies and hold wisdom about our emotional healing that can be helpful to the therapy journey. I am anti-racist and anti-fascist and I oppose power structures that violate human rights. Although healing and improving your mental health is certainly challenging, it can also be creative, inspiring, thrilling, and at times, kind of funny or fun. I will hold space for you to experience and express the full range of feelings that arise in our work; nothing is too shameful or scary for us to face together.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
