Hello! 

My name is Tori and I am very passionate about YOUR well-being. I have always felt personal fulfillment from supporting and encouraging others to seek a full & happy life. I have been working with individuals and couples for the last 10 years in a variety of settings.  I have a Master's in both Exercise Science and Clinical Social Work. I am a PhD student at the International Institute of Clinical Sexology. I enjoy helping couples and individuals create and grow intimacy. In a separate role, I work as a social worker with a variety of individuals battling neurological diagnoses and/or their care partners. Living with a chronic illness and having been a former caregiver, I am aware of how much additional strain and challenge these issues can bring to a relationship. My general philosophy revolves around creating positivity in seemingly negative spaces and encouraging others to be their true and authentic selves. I believe complete happiness stems from feeling comfortable enough to be that true self. As a queer identifying therapist, I am LGBTQ+ supportive. In my free time, I volunteer with a local non-profit facilitating support groups for caregivers. I enjoy being a devoted spouse & dog mom, and fostering animals when time allows. I also adore traveling and exploring new places, things, and concepts.
