About

I am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. I work with low sexual desire, infidelity, mismatched desires and needs, emotional sexual pain, erectile dysfunction, delayed or impaired orgasms, ejaculation concerns, LGBTQIA health or curiosity, sexual trauma, embarrassment and anxiety in regard to sex and sexuality. Exploring types of sexual behaviors, relationship configurations and non heteronormative expressions. Singles and couples who may be exploring or approaching issues in alternative relationships and alternative family structures, including ethical non-monogamy, polyamory, kink, living single, co-parenting, and chosen family.
My focus is in sexuality and sexual health/functioning, self-esteem around sex and communicating needs in relationships, issues around sexual abuse, male sexuality and intimacy issues, Poly/Non Monogamy, and Open Relationship Issues, Kink, BDSM, and LGBTQAI ally, integration of experiences around spiritual and psychedelic explorations.
I build with you a space of safety, understanding, and curiosity. My goal is to help you uncover your true potential, listen to your own wisdom, and start leading a life that is more of your own making. Struggling with the unknowns around sex, sexuality, and relationship can be challenging, and I hope to offer a safe, confidential space to help. Let's talk!
