My Specialities 

EMDR

EMDR is a trauma treatment that resolves the constant reliving of an event. It is a well researched treatment, shown to be effective.
And, I personally think it works
like magic! 

POLYAMORY

&

CONSENSUAL NON-MONO


I am out as poly, and providing good therapy for our community
is a passion of mine! 
I work in a collaborative manner with you individually or with you and your
relationship partner(s) to define 

the style that is a fit
for you.

GENDER 

AFFIRMATION

If you're seeking my services solely to access gender affirmation medical care, I offer sliding scale for these sessions.
Gender informed care is VERY important to me, and I make
a great advocate. 

 

SEX & KINK POSITIVE

Therapy should include all topics in 
your life. Discussing sex in therapy is welcome and encouraged here. 
I don't judge or shame. And, I am kink knowledgable and don't pathologize.
SEX WORKERS WELCOME!

PTSD/C-PTSD

&

TRAUMA RECOVERY 

Have you been struggling with symptoms of trauma for a long time? Does your trauma originate in your childhood? Is it parental neglect or abuse? Is it sexual abuse? I help heal from the wounds of this kind of
deep, layered
trauma.

ANXIETY DISORDERS

OCD

I help you address the underlying problem causing your anxiety, instead of focusing 
only on challenging your thinking.
While coping skills are
important, you are a person. And,
thought stopping alone doesn't
connect to your
human-ness.

 

LGBTQQIA

Some marginalized folks prefer a helping professional who is  a fellow member of your community. 
We haven't had the same experiences, but there are certain things
I will just get as a fellow.

MENSTRUAL CYCLE HEALING

As a trained Doula, and as a trauma informed therapist, I know that people with uteruses hold a lot of trauma in that part of their body. 
The surprising news might be that your period should NOT be debilitating.
I have developed a protocol to decrease
painful periods, intense PMS,
and sync up irregular
bleeds.

PSYCHADELIC 

INTEGRATION 

THERAPY

I do not provide medicine or facilitate sessions.
However, as part of a harm reduction model,
I am trained to support the integration of psychedelic medicine experiences.
I hold deep respect for the wisdom
of these
medicines.

 

TOXIC RELATIONSHIP 

&

ABUSE RECOVERY

I started my career working with survivors recovering from IPV/DV at a women's shelter and did my Master's Thesis on the most effective treatment for folks in a toxic
relationship.


 

SPIRITUAL 

EMERGENCY 

"many individuals experiencing episodes of nonordinary states of consciousness accompanied by various emotional, perceptual, and psychosomatic manifestations are undergoing an evolutionary crisis rather
than suffering from
a mental disease."
-S. Grof

FEMINIST FOCUSED &

HUMANISTIC

Therapy does not exist outside of our social and political context. 
So, I bring a feminist lens to therapy. 
The therapeutic relationship is important to me and shown to be an
agent of change.
