Founding member of Open Minds, I have been a private practice psychologist for 4 years. With over 6 years of experience as a counselor, I also have 6 years prior experience as a coach and trainer. My clinical expertise and personal identification with consensual non-monogamy, kink/BDSM, pansexuality and gender fluidity can help bridge the gap between these worlds and the venue of therapy, where inhabiting a shared reality can allow you, as the client, to feel validated and more deeply understood. In addition to working with gender and sexual minorities, I work extensively with women of color in tech. I utilize a mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral approach (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) combined with Somatic Experiencing™ and transpersonal interventions (Dr Stephen Gilligan's Generative Trancework). Please see my website for more info.
