I am a therapist, educator and activist with twelve years of experience serving as a clinician, organizer and advocate with LGBTQ individuals and survivors of trauma. I provide supportive psychotherapy to individuals and partners, 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.
My approach to therapy is collaborative, and I utilize a variety of treatment modalities, tailored to your 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.
