What I Offer

  • Individual Psychotherapy

  • Adjunct and single-session Brainspotting and EMDR

  • Relationship therapy for couples and multi-partnered relationships

  • Clinical Evaluations

I offer sessions using a variety of formats: Remotely using phone or video platforms, outdoors where we meet outside or stroll through the neighborhood, or in person. In sessions we can use a combination of talking, writing, typing and other means of communication that work best for us.

We may incorporate a variety of techniques in our work including EMDR, Brainspotting, creative arts, talking, and movement. I start with a foundation of talk therapy and holding space, and add in those outlets and potentially others as we explore the best ways for us to work together.

For ongoing therapy, we agree to meet and continue our sessions until we decide to take a break and/or end.


We can also meet to use EMDR or Brainspotting for a specific experience, or as an addition to your existing ongoing therapy. We can meet for 1-3 sessions, or work together to create a plan that incorporates your needs and situation.

Couples and Multi-partnered Relationships

Relationships of all styles and structures are welcome. Monogamous, Non-monogamous, polyamorous, hierarchical, anarchist, triads, polycules, D/s, Mommy/girl and Daddy/boy, Alpha/pup, emotional connections, intimate connections, and on and on. All relationships can have strengths and challenges, and we can use therapy to address the needs of your unique relationship.


In therapy with couples and relationships, I believe in supporting every person involved, as well as the relationship itself. I strive to assist you in acknowledging and addressing daily challenges, big decision making, ongoing hurts, resolving stresses that build up over time, and moving forward to expand communication, connection, intimacy, and partnership. Relationships shift and change over time, and in our work we can acknowledge how a relationship shows up and how everybody shows up in it. We will work towards accessing opportunities to move forward together, and bringing relationships to a close if and when that is what the relationship needs.

Clinical Evaluations

I offer assessments and documentation for a variety of situations:


Healing and growth are very individual processes, and I will work with you to identify and apply techniques with a flexible approach that best includes you and your history, communities, situation, style, and needs.


I draw from a variety of theories, including supportive, holistic, practical, anti-oppression, somatic processing, trauma-aware, relational, and liberatory practices. In therapy we can work together as you identify and embrace both your strengths and challenges and move towards getting to where you want to go in all aspects of life.

An Emotional Support Animal (ESA) is a companion animal that provides therapeutic benefit to people that have a diagnosable mental health condition. They do not require special training like service dogs, but are expected to be trained like any animal companion. To designate an animal as an ESA, you need a letter from a mental health professional. An ESA certification then offers specific specific legal rights, specifically including housing and transit.

Animals can be a wonderful addition to our lives. Sometimes, connection with an animal can directly impact and support mental health needs and a support animal can be a part of an active care plan. I have training and experience in the process of evaluation, documentation, and navigating the world with a companion animal. I can provide assessment and documentation to determine if you qualify for having an ESA.

What this involves:

I offer 1 hour, single session evaluations unless specific complexity arises that we choose to address further. We meet, I will write up any relevant information, and if I conclude that you meet the requirements for having an ESA I will provide you with documentation one month after our assessment. During this period we can follow up to provide updates and review experiences as needed..

The system for immigration in the United States can be complex, and challenging. I provide evaluations and documentation in a variety of contexts to support people working on immigration status (Asylum, VAWA, cancellation of removal,etc.) . I have been trained by HealthRight 360 and have provided numerous evaluations for more than a decade in a variety of contexts.

What this involves:

I typically schedule a 2  hour evaluation either all at once or over two meetings. We meet, I will write up any relevant information, and provide you or your legal team with documentation. I will coordinate with your legal team if you have one, and I am available for testimony for court proceedings if that is needed for your process. I am also happy to work with interpreters, and can sometimes provide one if we need one depending on our language needs.

Many systems (insurance, medical) require or request documentation from a psychologist as you embark on you gender journey. This documentation can involve letters assessing readiness, or completing insurance or program paperwork for a variety of affirming procedures. These requirements often include invasive or very detailed questions and reviews of many different life areas, and I aim to reduce as many barriers as possible while recognizing my position as a gate keeper. I embrace informed consent models for gender affirmation procedures, and can provide assessments and letters that adhere to WPATH guidelines and include any specific insurance or other system requirements.

What this involves:

I offer 1 hour, single session evaluations unless specific complexity arises that we choose to address further. We meet, I will write up any relevant information, and provide you with documentation. If you need addendums or date-updates in the future, those are included in the process.
