  • "Understand. Heal. Grow. We Can Do This Together"


    Are you living right on the edge?

    Does it feel like you just cannot figure out who you are or which direction to go in?
    Are you struggling to figure out how to exist within a society that doesn’t understand you?
    Maybe you have tried to figure yourself on your own, or even with the help of someone else, and it just has not clicked yet?

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you have made the right choice by being here. And, I know this is hard, and frightening.  When you have lived a life where you have been told or thought that you do not deserve help, the phone can feel like a million pounds.  I have been there before and it is not easy, but it can be profoundly helpful.

    I’m confident that together we can work to help equip you with the necessary tools to help you face and overcome these challenges. Whether you’re struggling with questions about sexuality, gender, how you fit into all of it or you are having anxiety or depression, it is important that you know you don’t have to be alone in this journey. I have the experience to help you answer these questions, to find connection when it seems impossible, and live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

    I understand no two individuals are the same, and I use current, evidence-based practices and tailor our sessions to your needs so that we can address challenges unique to you. We will work together to understand the root cause of your struggles and address those issues with long-lasting strategies, helping you get closer to the life you’ve always wanted.

    If you’re ready to work towards the life you’ve always wanted, I’m ready when you are. Contact me today and let’s get to work.

    I have always been oriented as a helper – I found that it came easily to me to sit and listen to people, and to offer them comfort at a very young age.  At some point it dawned on me that I should take what I am already good at and formalize this as a career path, which is how I found myself to be a therapist.  I find that this career is an excellent platform to advocate for the communities and issues that matter most to me, namely the intersection of LGBTQIA2S+ individuals to various other marginalized identities such as race, dis/ability status, neuroatypicality, ethical non-monogamy, and “non-normative” sexual practices.  As someone who knows and sees these struggles I find it incredibly rewarding to be able to work within these life experiences by using current, evidence-based practices to be able to alleviate suffering.  My graduate training at Seattle University enabled me to look through a variety of lenses, from the individual therapeutic relationship as a mechanism for healing, to being able to sit within (and hopefully find answers to) some of the largest existential questions of belonging, meaning, disaster, despair, and identity.   This is all to say that I find great joy in discovering what it means to find meaning, to move through life’s biggest issues, to exist as a human in relation with other humans, and what it means to struggle.

    Folks see me both virtually and soon in-person in the Seattle area.  I have a deep passion for both animals and plants, and if you’re seeing me via video you will notice my expanding collection of tropical houseplants and may even have a cat or two, or my dog, make a guest appearance.  When I am not working you’ll probably find me cooking, convincing myself to exercise, reading, or maybe even in a TikTok hole.
