Alternative Lifestyles, Poly & Kink
Are you in an alternative relationship, polyamorous partnership, BDSM, kink, or sex worker?
Are you searching for a sex-positive, open-minded, inclusive, non-shaming, non-judgment therapist to support your sexual explorations and discovery?
Are you seeking support for a mutual, consensual non-monogamous relationship?
Are you feeling isolated, confused, judged, and alone in your poly relationship?
Are you a sex worker searching for a safe space to talk about your concerns?
Are you bored with vanilla sex and curious about exploring BDSM and kink in your relationship?
I provide a sex-positive, open-minded, inclusive, non-shaming, and non-judgmental approach to support your intimacy and sexuality in alternative relationships, polyamorous lifestyles, consensual non-monogamy, sex worker challenges, and exploration of BDSM and kink-friendly. I provide the foundation and guidance to support your sexual goals while offering acceptance, compassion, dignity, and respect regarding your non-normative lifestyle.
I want to empower you to increase your self-worth and self-confidence in finding your voice to express and navigate challenging conversations and dialogues to communicate your desires in your relationship with your partner. If you want to explore an open non-monogamous relationship, want excitement with BDSM, kink, fetishes, or respect being a sex worker.
As a sex therapist, I have completed the science-based AASECT Comprehensive Sexology Program, fulfilling the entire educational requirement for certification sex and relationship therapy. I utilize affirming sex-positive therapy, active listening, and comprehensive assessments to promote the understanding of human sexuality and relationship meaning and satisfaction.
