Message to clients

I help people of diverse backgrounds find clarity and connection, improve relationships, and create positive change.
I believe that sexuality is an integral dimension of the human experience, one that many healthcare providers lack comfort and competency to address. I am committed to providing a respectful and supportive environment that is kink and poly-friendly, and accepting of all forms of sexual orientation and gender identity.
Together, we can explore your questions, identify patterns, and generate solutions. I look forward to working with you!
