Do you ever feel like you have to monitor, pull back, and even hide yourself from others? From friends, family, acquaintances, even from yourself? Do you tend to put your needs and wants at the bottom of the list? Are you ready to commit to you? Together we will work side by side to help strengthen your confidence, awareness, insight, healing and make progress within yourself. As a Sex-positive, Kink-knowledgeable, Gender affirming, and Trauma therapist I understand that we are all different and provide a laid-back atmosphere. I focus on helping others build an understanding about not only themselves, their identity, their relationships, and the relationship they have with sex. Help others understand their trauma whether that be physical, mental, sexual, spiritual, etc. While utilizing evidence-based practices, I strive to support, encourage, and empower you. I view mental health as just as important as physical health. When an injury/illness occurs, seeking professional intervention, guidance, and support can improve overall wellness. Depending on your physical environment, social circle, culture, heredity, and experiences. Life can look limited. Let's continue to stay curious.
