Marriage and Family Therapy Associate

Kink & non-monogamy, trauma, sex & gender, queer, systemic lens, individual and couples therapy

As a therapy practitioner, I find it helpful to disclose my own social identities in order to aid clients in choosing a therapist who fits them best. I am non-binary, white, non-monogamous, pansexual, nerdy, and queer, and navigating chronic illness. I recognize that I often pass as cis-hetero and able-bodied, and recognize the impact this has on the way I navigate the world. I aim to do my best to understand you from an intersectional and queer perspective, knowing that your experience is unique and different from my own.


My therapeutic practice centers around sex and sexuality, trauma, gender exploration and identity, romantic relationships, ethical non-monogamy, kink, emotional and somatic experience, asexuality and ace spectrum experiences, religious/spiritual trauma, geekiness/nerdiness, and body acceptance. My work draws on therapeutic models of attachment, mindfulness, emotionally focused, somatic, and narrative therapies. I am also trained as a Therapeutic Game Master by Geek Therapeutics, which is a certification in facilitating group therapy using tabletop roleplaying games for therapeutic purposes. In July 2022, I graduated with a Masters in Marriage, Couple, and Family therapy from Lewis & Clark College. I received my Bachelor of Science in Clinical & Counseling Psychology from Colorado State University in 2018.


Understanding how our bodies and minds work at a biological level is an important factor of therapy. Emotions are another integral part of the human experience that we will explore in our work together. I believe that our mind and our bodies are deeply connected, and the work we do will incorporate both thoughts and embodied experiences. I aim to bring my authentic self to the room and therapeutic relationship. My goal is to offer a space where you can also be your authentic self and explore the possibilities of healing and growth that you are reaching for. I view therapy as driven by the client, so I am here to work with you towards your personal goals. In my free time, I enjoy playing video games, D&D, reading, hanging out with my cat and dog, and spending time outdoors.
