Message to clients

Are you struggling with identifying and communicating your feelings in your relationship? Relationship therapy can help you develop better communication, feel more fulfilled and understood by your partner(s). I will help you to develop an understanding of yourself to transform the relationships in your lives by teaching you how to communicate with others in your life whether it be a partner, a familial relationship, communicating at work, or even in friendships.

I specialized in two things, relationships and Entrepreneurial mental health.

I work with women entrepreneurs to develop boundaries to create work-life balance.

I specialize in monogamy, polyamory, and ethical non-monogamy. I work with individuals that want to: explore boundaries in their relationships, explore non-monogamy and open relationships, and improve communication with their partner(s).

I provide a safe, supportive space for Black, Indigenous, & People Of Color. I have an LGBTQIA+ Affirmative practice and welcome all sexual orientations & gender identities and relationship styles. You deserve to be affirmed and respected.

Together, we’ll gain insight into each of you as individuals and the relationships and boundaries you are struggling with. Learn how to better navigate stress, communicate more effectively, and thrive in your life. Making that first call can be scary but I'm here to help, reach out today to start your journey to learn how to communicate more effectively in your everyday life!
