Business Description

Are you a kinky California/Nevada resident in search of counseling?

Having difficulty finding a licensed therapist who "gets" the kink community?

Wouldn't it be a relief to have a therapist who understood?

Often times, professionals outside of the community do not understand the intricacies within certain BDSM dynamics. People hesitate to disclose relationship details to their therapists, due to the fear of being reported for "abuse," when in fact, the play was consensual. Additionally, many professional counselors are not trained in fetish work.

As part of the poly/kink/LGBTQ+ communities I have a unique approach in working with kinky individuals. Along with life experience, I have had specialized training from Yale University as well as, The Bueller Institute in working with individuals in the kink and LGBTQ+ communities. I am a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), and National Association for Social Workers (NASW).

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Nevada/California. Pronouns: She/Her/Hers.

I use a conversational style approach with eclectic techniques. Treatment is tailored to fit your needs. I am well versed in treating such conditions such as: depression, anxiety, isolation, grief, stress, PTSD.

Additionally, I offer treatment in the following areas: life transitions, art therapy, self-harm, low self-esteem, sex therapy, communication skills, music therapy, and more. I am currently accepting individuals, couples, and polyamorous relationships. I am also accepting youth ages 13+

Most people go through times in their lives when they need some guidance. You don't have to go through this hardship alone. Reach out and let's get through this together.
