About My Clients

Many clients come to me to help them unpack what has happened to them in the past, and how it affects them today. My specialization is in working with folks who are non-monogamous/polyamorous/monogamish, or want to explore this space more. I love helping people to unpack the stigma and beliefs in our society that keep you from fully relaxing into this space. I can also help with attachment issues and trauma (including jealousy) that get triggered in relationships.

My Approach to Helping

As a therapist for over a decade, I continue to take trainings on the latest and greatest therapeutic practices to be the most effective therapist for you. My approach is guided by the goals you set for yourself, and I will share my knowledge to help you decide how you want to get there. I will gently and consistently nudge you towards the work you want to do without pushing you into places you’re not ready to go. If starting therapy makes you nervous, rest assured that my style uses a lot of humor and genuine validation to make you feel comfortable and never judged for what’s inside of you. Working together in therapy, we can help you to develop a better relationship with yourself. We can look at the past and see how it informs the way you operate today. Once we see where those unconscious patterns are coming from, we can update the parts of you that are stuck in the past so you can live the life you desire.

My Values as a Therapist

As a bisexual and non-monogamous human, I am an advocate for Gender, Sexuality, and Relationship Diversity (GSRD). I love working with the LGBTQIA+ community, and provide a validating space for you to explore your relationships with others and yourself, so you can live into whatever identities you truly are, even if there’s not a great roadmap in society for how that looks. Besides being a therapist, I enjoy spending my off time reading, listening to podcasts, thrift shopping, and connecting with my friends and community. I love sharing resources that I find (podcasts, books, people to follow on instagram) with my clients, so if you like to have stuff to do between sessions, I’ll always have something you can look into (but it’s definitely not required!) I’m also passionate about helping people to find the right therapist for them. Book a consultation, and we’ll see if we’re a match! If we’re not, I’m happy to connect you with the right therapist for you using all the resources I have.
