Beginning therapy can be scary and intimidating, but also hopeful. Discussing your wishes and uncertainties in session can promote clarity and lead to positive changes in thinking and behavior that are necessary to improve circumstances and relationships. Action is required for positive life changes to occur. It isn't always easy figuring out what action to take or what changes to make. Therapy is a safe place to explore these thoughts and feelings. Small shifts can lead to large improvements in mood and relationships. Please reach out with questions or to schedule an initial consultation.

Often the desire to start therapy begins when you realize that you are not in control of your feelings, goals, wishes, your own life. Those are the moments that you realize that maybe something needs to change. The change you seek may be specific around a certain event, or more diffuse, based on larger transformations, a desire for deeper insight or better self-awareness. Whatever it is, you do not have to deal with it alone and finding the right therapist is an important first step. As your therapist, I'll meet you with curiosity, warmth, and respect, creating a safe space where you can re-connect with your best self.

Our sexuality is at the core of who we are as humans, and where we came from – it is our life force. It’s also at the core of our own identity. So many of us are searching for who we truly are. We’re so encapsulated in who we should be being for others, that we end up losing ourselves. This shows up most frequently in intimate relationships. Our desire for unconditional love from another supersedes our need for physical connection. Emotion trumps sexuality. And what goes on within our mind shuts down the abilities of our body. Are you feeling lost in your relationship? Do you desire more sexually?
