Pronouns: She, Her, Hers
I am a feminist activist, psychotherapist and clinical researcher practicing in Virginia and Florida.
I help my clients see the ways their beliefs about themselves, their world, and their relationships hold them back from living their best lives.
As a trauma-informed therapist, I specialize in sexual assault recovery, and help clients move from victim to survivor through safety, story telling, and reconnecting with the world.
As a sex-positive therapist and abortion counselor, I work with clients to identify healthy relationships with themselves and others, and can help support during and after abortion.
With more than ten years of experience as a researcher, I am grounded in data and the science of women’s health, but stay rooted by honoring the deep wisdom of intuition and spirit.
I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Virginia and a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida, with more than six years of counseling experience.
By encouraging my clients to practice effective communication, vulnerability, authenticity, boundary setting and self-care, I help them transform ideas of power and what it means to be an empowered #bosslady in society today.
Counselling & Consulting, Leadership, Workshops & Retreats
For more than ten years, I have worked to provide sex-positive education and empowerment to women through feminist activism and counseling.
In addition to being a Founding Member of of the nonprofit St. Pete Women's Collective, I specialize in counseling, consulting, workshops, retreats, and leadership.
I am available for client sessions via video or phone (telehealth) in the states of Virginia and Florida.
If you are struggling with sexual assault recovery, anxiety, problems in relationships, communication, self-esteem or find that a set belief is holding you back from achieving your desired goals, I want to help.
Through empowerment, cognitive restructuring, and mindfulness that encourages deep self-reflection and growth, you can begin to dispute negative thought patterns, trace the origins of these thoughts, and challenge self-doubt.
I work with individuals and couples struggling with intimacy, pleasure, and sexual health. I support clients who are part of the LGBTQ+ and consensual non-monogamy communities.
