I provide counseling services in a compassionate, non-judgmental manner.  i believe that a trusting relationship between client and therapist is crucial to the therapeutic process.  I treat both individuals and couples.  My philosophy in working with the BDSM community is as follows:

I continue to read and learn about BDSM 

•   I am comfortable in talking about BDSM

•   I'm comfortable asking questions about BDSM

•   I strive to help clients overcome any associated shame and stigma (if that is an issue with the client)

•   I have an attitude of open-mindedness and acceptance

•   I do not expect clients to provide all the education for me

•   I understand ‘safe, sane and consensual’ BDSM

•   I understand the distinction between abuse and BDSM

   I strive to appreciate the complexity of BDSM play

   I understand that some clients may need help to explore and establish if ?they are using BDSM in a positive way

   I understand that some clients may be exploring their identity in the BDSM community and I am committed to not attempting in any way to influence anyone's decision in that regard
