Growing up in Arizona and spending time working as both a former educator and as a sex worker, I have seen first hand how neglected sexual education and advocacy for sex workers is in this state. As a former sex worker, I have personally and passively seen the damaging effects of measures such as Project ROSE as well as unfair labor practices and prejudice.

For these reasons, I have chosen to direct my social work practice towards sex therapy and education and advocacy for sex workers.

The best outcome for the client is to focus on her own needs and not get deeply involved in a relationship.
