Chrysalis Counseling, LLC

I’m so glad you’re here!

Welcome to Chrysalis Counseling, LLC,  specializing in providing support for individuals navigating the intricate realms of gender, sexuality, and identity exploration. This includes those exploring alternative lifestyles, encompassing a wide spectrum such as kink and BDSM, non-monogamous relationships, and assisting those who have faced trauma or abuse related to their sexuality – among so much more.

No matter the complexities you grapple with, I am dedicated to crafting a journey that respects and celebrates your individuality. Within the curated and informed space, I take great pride and care to ensure a validating and empowering atmosphere where you can explore freely and feel confident in your vulnerability.

We firmly advocate for the right of every person to express themselves authentically, challenging societal norms and binaries along the way. Within our safe and accepting space, judgment finds no footing, and you are free to explore without constraints.

Our ultimate goal? To accompany you as you embrace your whole self, shattering stigmas, and normalizing the beautifully diverse tapestry of human experience. Together, let’s embark on a transformative journey toward self-acceptance and empowerment. Reach out today, and let’s navigate this path of discovery and growth hand in hand.

Authenticity is the ultimate activism. By bravely embracing who you are, you challenge societal norms and inspire others to do the same. Your commitment to authenticity ignites a ripple effect of empowerment and acceptance, creating a world where everyone feels free to live as their true selves.
