My primary goal is to provide you a safe space to explore what is and what is not working for you. I don’t presume to know what is best for you, nor do I see any part of you–your gender identity, your sexual orientation, or how you interact with your intimate partner or partners–as something that needs to be fixed.

I am here to help you discover what the deepest part of you holds true while working through whatever troubles seem to be in the way.

I work within an affirming, strengths-based, social justice framework.

I believe in the healing power of laughter and lifelong learning.
