If you live an erotically alternative lifestyle, you are no stranger to prejudice. There is a lot of misunderstanding out there about kink, even among therapists. Finding a kink aware and knowledgeable professional can seem like a chore. You're probably great at research because you've had to do a lot of it!
What sets me apart is my open, non-judgmental, empathic approach to a lifestyle you choose for yourself and your partner(s). Maybe kink-related issues are the reason you are going to therapy or maybe you just want someone who won't gasp or act like there is something wrong with you for being kinky. Either way, I welcome you into my practice.
Together, we can work on healing emotional injuries, re-creating connection, cultivating personal growth, and much more. My approach is trauma-informed and attachment-based. With relationships, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and the Gottman Method. For individuals, I use a combination of Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and EMDR.
In addition to kink, my specialties include consensual non-monogamy/couples, trauma, and bipolar disorder.
