  • Do you need help with relational issues and have you found therapists to lack understanding or to have judgement about your lifestyle? I welcome artists, Burning Man attendees, people in the BDSM and Open Relationship communities, LGBTQI individuals, couples, and other relationship groupings. I am BDSM and open relationship knowledgeable. I also enjoy working with therapists-in-training who are doing their own work to become better therapists and with new parents struggling to figure how their lives have changed. I have completed Level 1 Gottman Method training as well as Level 1 Internal Family Systems training.

    I offer expertise in communication, polyamory, and open relationships. I am interested in exploring new archetypes for masculinity and femininity. I support people creating rites of passage in their own lives: emerging from the family as a differentiated individual, the transition into parenthood, the beginning or ending of relationships.

    I work with a network of therapists who seek to serve the above communities each with their own unique perspective and experience. Coming from a Jungian background having attended Pacifica Graduate Institute, I enjoy working with archetypes, dream material, play therapy for adults, and exploring past experiences for present benefit.
