About Me

mother

adventurer

food lover

therapist

witness

sex-positive

advocate 

 

I was born and raised in a small suburb of Pennsylvania, but always felt drawn to the northwest.  Now Missoula is where I call home. When I'm not in the office, you can find me out on the trail with my dogs, sipping on a local brew, or basically anywhere outdoors (except maybe in the winter months).

I have always felt passionate about helping others. Throughout my life, people have been sharing their stories with me. Varied types of jobs in my early years amplified my curiosity to know and understand people's stories. I have worked with mother's at risk for perinatal mood disorders, survivors of sexual trauma, LGBTQIA teens, and couples looking to rekindle their intimacy and sexual connection, just to name a few. Ultimately, there is nothing in the world I would rather do than to sit with people in the muck; the vulnerable, the exciting, the heart-breaking, the terrifying. It's all sacred space, and it's where I want to be. And I want to walk through that process with you.
