About

I am a somatic trauma therapist, educator, coach, and consultant with more than 12 years in non-profit work for justice, mental health, and education. I specialize in serving sexual and gender outsiders - LGBQ+ and TGNC people, polyamorous and non-monogamous folks, BDSM/kink-involved clients, and sex workers. I also offer training and consulting on serving these groups in safe, competent, and affirming ways. I am passionate about intersectional justice across race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, body sizes, and age groups. I am trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy a body-based therapy modality for trauma and attachment healing. 

 

While my clients now are adults in private practice, I have worked with young people of all ages, substance users, sexual assault survivors, patients seeking abortions, the LGBTQ+ community, low-income people facing chronic physical illness & severe and persistent mental illness, people affected by HIV/AIDS, among many others. My experience ranges from psychotherapy, case management, crisis intervention, suicide prevention, workshop facilitation, classroom education, and grassroots organizing.
