Care Philosophy

I believe that sexuality is a vital part of our overall well-being and should be nurtured alongside and in collaboration with mental and physical health needs. Sexual and gender health is multi-dimensional and demands a holistic approach. I bring a systemic lens to complicated, intimate concerns and provide a non-judgmental space to engage and explore individual and relational needs.
