My work is devoted to guiding/supporting people to learn, explore and ultimately love their sexual selves.

I love being a therapist. I have been doing the work for 10 years now, While I can serve and help many people with a variety of life’s challenges. I am currently working towards a certification in Sex Therapy. I am receiving supervision for my certification from ASSECT Certified Sex Therapy Supervisor, Wendy Haggerty. I work with LGBQQAIP+, Trans/GNC/Non-binary/2 spirit communities. I work with adult individuals, couples, and 2 plus relationships. I am Kinky/BDSM/poly friendly. As I personally identify with many of the above-mentioned identities, I can provide therapy and expertise from not only a trained clinical perspective, but also a lived experience too.
