Living in a predominantly conservative and religious state, I am forthcoming about my progressive and secular values in my therapeutic work with clients.

I work with clients ages 15+ and will support you in exploring your identity, values, and/or relational patterns, as well as working to manage anxiety, depression, or navigating life changes. I specialize in working with members of the queer community, as well as those who practice "alternative" sexualities including ethical non-monogamy, kink, and BDSM relationships.

Using a mixture of Feminist Therapy, Queer Theory, and Sex Positivity, we will work together to process your past, identify your present values, and build a life you love. I have a graduate certificate in Gender and Women's Studies and a Sex Positive Professional Certification through the Center for Positive Sexuality.

Living as a queer and atheist individual in the state of Utah, I relate to experiences of marginalization while also recognizing the privilege I hold.
