**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS- VIRTUAL SERVICES ONLY**  Looking for a therapist can be a complicated process- cue judgments of self, fear, avoidance. I am glad you're here- it's the first step! My hope is to build a collaborative relationship with you to create a safe space for you to explore your goals. I specialize in working with folx who are exploring their sexuality (LGBTQ+, Kink, consensual non-monogamy), as well as those folx who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and life transitions. Exploring parts of your identity can be complex, intertwined with current mood symptoms, and informed by many layers (ex. family, upbringing, culture, current life circumstances). My hope is help you identify these parts, increase comfort with them, and ultimately make a plan to live as your authentic self.  I am not a traditional therapist,  I integrate Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills with humor, pop culture and outside the box references. I want you to leave each session with an intentional focus of something to try or think about in between our meetings. I take a direct approach, and I view therapy as a two way relationship- I am not always the expert, my hope is that we can work together to get you closer to where you want to be, how you want to be. It can be a scary process, therapy sometimes gets harder before it gets easier! I also am a trained yoga instructor - I use simple yoga poses and mindfulness to strengthen the mind-body connection and to increase self-soothing relaxation as needed.  I look forward to connecting with you!
