Business Excerpt
Private telehealth therapy practice serving neurodivergent, non-monagamous, and kinky folx in NC and SC
Business Description

I’m an experienced psychotherapist (LCSW) with over 10 years of practice, specializing in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Schema Therapy, and Mindful Self-Compassion. I hold a DBT-Linehan Board of Certification (DBT-LBC) certification, demonstrating my commitment to providing high-quality, evidence-based therapy. Basically, I’m a super geek about all things DBT 🙂

My practice is uniquely tailored to the needs of diverse individuals, and I find great fulfillment in working with non-monogamous, queer, kinky, and neurodivergent folx. I believe that every person deserves a safe and affirming space to explore their unique identities, experiences, and challenges with a strong therapeutic alliance at the foundation of treatment. I’m different than many therapists in that I am attuned to therapy interfering behaviors that show up in sessions on both therapist and client parts, and I have well-refined and practiced strategies to help the relationship stay healthy so therapy can be more successful.

My commitment to serving the LGBTQIA+ community, Non-monogamous, Kink/BDSM community, and other marginalized groups are at the core of my practice. As an ally, I understand the unique challenges and discrimination that individuals in these communities face, and I’m dedicated to providing a supportive environment where you can explore your experiences without fear of judgment.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy board games, video games, educational events, time with other “neuro-spicy” (neurodivergent) friends, nature, and all things water related. I’m a single parent to teen boys, one with ADHD and Autism. I’m warm, nurturing, playful, and goal directed.
