Director of Operations & Co-Founder

I am a Licensed Marriage/Family Therapist and Director of Operations here at Feelings and Rainbows. I feel grateful to be doing meaningful work in a community that means a lot to me. 

At Feelings and Rainbows I get to do a little bit of everything. I'm especially excited about expanding access to mental health care and resources in our community. 


In my therapy practice I specialize in working with couples/dyads who want to make positive changes in their relationships--whether those relationships are romantic, familial, friendly, or professional. When working with couples, I support clients in creating a common love language uniquely tailored to their shared values. When working with individuals, I provide support to encourage alignment with core values as they navigate the dating world, family, friendships and the workplace.  My practice is LGBTQ+, poly/ENM and kink affirming.


Outside of the office I enjoy dancing, seeing live stand-up comedy, yoga, handcrafted beverages, spending time with friends/family and hanging out with my cats, Mojave and Floyd.
