Our physical, mental, and sexual health are integrally connected. When one aspect suffers, the others will undoubtedly be affected. By examining how these various parts of yourself are integrated, we can work to bring  balance and confidence into your life and relationships.

I will take a collaborative approach to assist you in achieving your goals. I aim to create a safe and supportive environment where you can discuss concerns that may be causing you anxiety, shame, frustration, or sadness.

Whether you are looking to develop coping skills, strengthen your relationships, or gain a deeper understanding of yourself, I can help. My practice is LGBTQIA+, kink-, and poly-affirming.  

I am licensed in Virginia, Maryland, and DC. I am currently accepting new patients for video or in-person appointments.


I provide psychotherapy and sexual health therapy to adult individuals and couples. I use a combination of engagement styles from psychodynamic to cognitive behavioral.

A 45-minute individual session with me is $195. For a 50-minute couples session, the fee is $245.

A few questions that are important to ask your insurance provider about your mental health coverage:

Please note that the session fee is due at the beginning of our sessions. I accept payment through Venmo.
