“You cannot find peace by avoiding life.”

-Michael Cunningham

I support those struggling with intimacy, trauma, stress, relationships, and sex to heal and build the lives and relationships they long for.

If you have experienced difficult life circumstances, you may wonder if the impact of events from the past will ever fade. You may have all the right pieces in place but still feel unhappy, worthless, lonely, lost, angry, or constantly stressed. Boundaries, feeling connected to others, or getting needs met in relationships or work may feel hopeless. I'm here to journey alongside you as we work together to determine what healing, wellness, and growth look like for you and how to reach them.

I offer a range of tools and therapies including EMDR, DBT, somatic tools, depth and relational psychotherapy to address the past hurts, harm, and personal challenges that bring people to therapy, nurture resilience, and access experiences of pleasure, joy, and healthy, right relationship. I center an understanding of trauma and oppression to guide my work, and I prioritize being a sex worker-friendly and queer and trans-affirming practice. I offer a sliding scale for private pay, as well as accepting CalVCB, as payment for therapy.
