Meet Shani.

Individual, Couples, and Sex Therapist

Washington State

Telehealth only

Accepting Clients in July

Hi, I'm Shani (she/her)

Being a human in this world is hard. I believe it can be made easier when we find spaces that allow us to show up authentically, and to be fully witnessed in our identities, experiences, and life stories. I am invested in walking alongside you with compassion, non judgment, and curiosity as you explore your intra- and interpersonal worlds.

Moving within a sex-positive framework, I aim to support you in alleviating shame and increasing access to pleasure. I view joy, rest and pleasure as radical channels of self-love, healing and resistance. As a systemic thinker, I take a holistic and intersectional perspective grounded in Anti-Racism, Feminist and Queer Theories. I value consent and agency above all, trusting that you have the internal wisdom to know what is best for you and your body.

My approach varies depending on the needs of the individual, but is particularly influenced by Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Informed and Somatic Therapies, Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems (parts work) and Polyvagal Theory.

Fun Facts: I am a first generation U.S. citizen, with Scottish and Ashkenazi Jewish roots. I am also neurodivergent and have invisible chronic illnesses. My passions include hiking, traveling, singing, and working with horses using non-traditional techniques. My dream is to blend therapy practice with my knowledge and skills of natural horsemanship.
