I am a therapist, educator and activist with twelve years of experience serving as a clinician, organizer, educator and advocate with LGBTQ+ individuals and partners, survivors of trauma, and other members of marginalized communities, across a wide breadth of diagnoses. I specialize in culturally competent, sex-positive feminist psychotherapy with transgender, lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer & questioning individuals, trauma survivors, and partners in polyamorous, non-monogamous and other creative relationship structures. I am also experienced in providing non-judgmental support to individuals in the sex trade, and am a kink/BDSM-aware provider.
I am licensed in Indiana and Illinois, and provide therapy services in-office and virtually via telehealth. My approach to therapy is collaborative, and I utilize a variety of treatment modalities, tailored to each client's needs. I look forward to supporting you in healing, exploring & evolving into the most fulfilled version of yourself.
I am committed to social justice, and carry this value throughout my professional practice. In addition to providing therapy full-time, I am the founder of Project Fierce Chicago, a grassroots organization providing housing to LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness, and the Founder of Queering Indy, a resource for LGTBQ+ Hoosiers that provides programming and safe/celebratory spaces. Additionally, I was a long-time board member for the Sex Workers Outreach Project, and provide workshops on LGBTQ cultural competency. You can find past presentation and published work here.
Individual, Family, and Relationship Counseling
I provide identity-affirming psychotherapy services in a peaceful office in Broad Ripple, & virtually through a secure online platform, to clients across the U.S.
Training and Consultation
I provide comprehensive training and workshops for universities, social service organizations and community groups. Training topics include LGBTQ cultural competency, sexual health, harm reduction practices, trauma and sexuality, legislative advocacy, and effectively serving sexual and gender minorities in a wide variety of setting.

I provide individual and small groups of pre-licensed social workers with the necessary weekly clinical supervision toward LCSW licensure. Rates vary based on number of providers in the group. Please contact me for specific information.
