Greetings! I am grateful that you have found your way to my bio. Whether it is your first time exploring therapy or you are looking for a new fit, it can be a daunting experience. It is vital that the therapist and client(s) feel a genuine connection. The models that I often use are attachment based, interpersonal neurobiology and family systems theory while also holding that it is vital to create a safer space in therapy that is anti-oppressive, affirming and trauma-informed to create an authentic connection. I believe the therapy process requires commitment from the client(s). In tandem with your commitment, I feel passionately about my ability to foster a space where we find the resources and strengths to meet each of the goals a client might seek during the therapeutic process.

I am dedicated to social justice and advocacy both in and out of the space of therapy. I hold various intersections of identity, which I will discuss below. I pride myself on being a trans-affirming, queer-affirming, sex-positive, and polyamorous-positive therapist. I also enjoy working with loved ones and caregivers of those who occupy those spaces as well. 

I am a white, non-binary, pansexual, non-disabled, polyamorous person living on occupied Kumeyaay land near the mountains of San Diego, California. I enjoy playing and watching soccer, reading, traveling, and spending time outdoors. As the eldest of a large family, I also spend a good amount of time enjoying being a big sibling and an auncle. 

All of my care is provided virtually and my fee structure is below. I do hold multiple spots for sliding scale and low cost sessions. 

  • Individual: $125 for a 50 minute session
  • Family/Couple/Relational: $150 for a 50 minute session

If you are interested in having a conversation to see if we would be a good fit please schedule a free 30 minute consultation using my Therapy Zen or emailing at
