About Me

WHO I HELP

As a therapist: primarily trauma survivors, LGBQ+ and TGNC folks, polyamorous and non-monogamous people, BDSM and kink-involved folks, and sex workers.

As a coach, consultant, and trainer: Professionals who would like to work with the aforementioned clients in respectful, competent, and affirming ways. Individuals looking for growth and transformation for whom weekly therapy is not a good fit.

MY BACKGROUND

I am a therapist, social worker, and educator with more than 12 years in non-profit work for justice, mental health, and education. I am passionate about intersectional justice across race, gender, sexuality, class, ability, body sizes, and age.

 

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, among many others.

 

My experience ranges from psychotherapy, case management, crisis intervention, suicide prevention, workshop facilitation, classroom education, and grassroots organizing.
