What makes me qualified to be a coach? I have identified as polyamorous for 13 years and think about relationships and how to do them well all the time. Through my lived experiences and informal education, I consider myself an ever-evolving expert in matters of nonmonogamy and relationships and someone whose open mind and curiosity is helpful to people exploring themselves as relational beings. In terms of more formal education/experience, at this current moment I’m 1 class away from getting my Masters in Social Work (I graduate in May!) and have spent the past 7 years working in the nonprofit world doing racial equity and family support work.
I have a passion for talking about and helping folks process their challenges in relationships, sex, pleasure, intimacy, queerness, race, disability, gender, boundaries, romance, trauma, passion, kink. I want nothing more than to see people thrive in their joy and I want to help create a world where anyone can thrive, unbound by oppression and -isms that put up so many unnecessary and inhumane barriers. I have, do, and will fight like hell to make that world possible both in my coaching practice and in my daily personal life.
I'm currently living alone and practicing solo polyamory/relationship anarchy. I co-parent a wild and wonderful pup named Rhonda and cat named Howie. I love spending time with all my relations, playing games (especially word games), and mushroom foraging.
