I’m so glad you’re here!

Welcome to Chrysalis Counseling, LLC, a practice that encourages identity exploration and self-discovery. I understand that the process of discovering who you are, and who you want to be, can be a complex and challenging journey. That’s why I strive to provide a safe and supportive space to help you unravel who you are and navigate the challenges that may arise.
I specialize in providing support for those seeking guidance in their identity and sexual exploration, including kink and BDSM, non-monogamous relationships, and especially individuals who have experienced trauma or abuse related to their sexuality and sexual abuse/trauma,
No matter what you are questioning or seeking in order to better understand yourself, I work with you to build a personalized experience that meets your unique needs. I believe that everyone deserves the freedom to express themselves authentically and without judgment, and I am here to be your unconditional support in your journey to self actualization.
My goal is to help you emerge from your own chrysalis, stronger and more resilient, with a deeper understanding of who you are and what you want from life.
Contact me today to start your own metamorphosis and discover the beauty of your true self.
