“I have a strong belief that everyone possesses their own strengths to help guide them through life’s difficulties, and my goal is to help you find your own strengths. Therefore, my treatment strategy utilizes collaborative, solution-focused theories with clients, as well as psychoeducation, cognitive behavioral therapy, and feminist family therapy. It is important to me to create a safe, open, and non-judgmental atmosphere with my clients, as I believe all people are important and have their own unique life experiences and ideas. I specialize in working with couples and multi-partner relationships who have communication issues, rebuilding a relationship after infidelity, and reducing conflict in a relationship. I am a certified PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator for couples preparing for marriage or wanting to enrich their current relationship. I also have experience working with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, life transitions, self-esteem issues, communication difficulties, and parenting concerns.

I am an LGBTQ-affirmative, kink-friendly, and polyamory-knowledgeable therapist familiar with hierarchical and non-hierarchical polyamory, solo polyamory, swinging, relationship anarchy, and more. I have experience supporting clients related to the identity process, dealing with discrimination, and navigating the coming out process and other relational issues for LGBTQ/polyamorous individuals, families, and couples. Regardless of the situation, each individual can feel empowered in their journey towards change, and I am committed to working with my clients to find their strengths and achieve their goals.

I am also an educator and speaker to provide information about polyamory and other forms of consensual non-monogamy to the general public and other mental health professionals. Call for more information or if you would like me to do a training at your location.”
