  • Choosing the right counselor is important. My approach is open and collaborative; working with you to explore reactions, emotional patterns, and thought processes. I encourage honest exchange at your own pace while providing you with tangible techniques to take into your life. Using a combination of empirically based modalities, while also being guided by a strong sense of intuition, I draw from various therapeutic theories and practices. From my background as a trained yoga teacher, I integrate mindfulness and body-centered approaches when appropriate. I have helped individuals with depression, anxiety, frustration and anger, sadness, confusion, loss of job, sexual desires, relationship violence, pregnancy, parenting, and much more. One of my specialities is work-related stress or concerns in all kinds of environments including tech, academic, and the sex industry. I work with people who identify in various ways including straight, LGBTQ, kinky, and transgender.
