Overview

I create supportive and empowering spaces for individuals and couples to explore and redefine intimacy and pleasure. With a Masters in Social Work from San Francisco State University, I have experience in direct client care and macro social work in the Oregon State Public Health Department, specializing in LGBTQIA2S+ communities.

In therapy, I practice mindfulness and somatic approaches, allowing clients to lead while I support. I embrace sex and pleasure positivity, affirm polyamory and kink, and value courage and vulnerability in therapy.

My areas of specialty include LGBTQIA2S+ trauma, anxiety, depression, gender identity exploration, polyamory, kink, and non-traditional relationships.

Together, we can explore the messages your body sends and move towards the life you desire. I value courage and vulnerability in therapy and aim to foster trust within the therapeutic relationship.

I am a master's-level candidate holding a certificate to practice in Oregon as a social work associate. I practice under a board-approved clinical supervisor, pursuant to OAR 877-020-0012, at Mindful Therapy Group, P.C.
