Get to Know Me

I'm a therapist and sex positive educator in Portland, Oregon. I have a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and I am trained as a Holistic Sex Therapist. I’m a rain loving, urban-dwelling Portlander. Prior to becoming a therapist, I worked in the trades as a DC power engineer and general contractor. In my spare time I enjoy building things, being snobbish about craft beer, B-grade shark movies, and doing outdoorsie things.


Life's too short to be unhappy, unsure, or unfulfilled. I am here to help my clients achieve a more positive outlook on life, and provide them with all the tools necessary to get them there. My goal as a counselor is to provide a safe and compassionate environment that supports my clients in enhancing their awareness, acceptance, and self-expression as they move towards a stronger sense of self, and more satisfying relationships with others. Let me help you learn and develop better ways to handle the issues that are standing in the way of your goals.
