What To Expect At Your Visit

Are you curious about who you can trust with your fears and worries, or with your hopes and dreams?  Have you tried quitting or reducing those negative coping skills but keep falling back into your old patterns? 

 

You might be wondering if there's someone out there who can celebrate you for being a little "outside the box".  Maybe you’re in a consensual non-monogamous relationship, or you identify as LBGTQIA2+, or you’re considering transitioning your gender or sexual orientation and you're wondering who you can trust to be affirming and knowledgeable.

You deserve to be truly seen and celebrated for everything you bring to this world.  I help my clients remember their authentic goodness, reconnect to their true passions, and experience the joy of life again.  With my support, folks rely less on destructive numbing substances and behaviors and instead turn toward what truly fuels and heals them.

Sessions are offered either in-person (SLO or Paso) or online, last 50 minutes, and are $150 paid via cash or credit card.  I can provide a monthly superbill for reimbursement if you would like to use insurance other than Anthem or CenCal (SLO County).  I am currently accepting a few new individual clients- please use the contact form below if you'd like to schedule a consultation.
