I enjoy working with children (9+), teens and adults. I see couples and families helping them live happier, more relaxed, and fulfilling lives. I am respectful of my client's time. I frequently check in to make sure that the sessions are helpful, and that we are focusing on what the client wishes to. If one approach is not working, we try another! When people are feeling anxious, depressed, or angry, often the problem is their stress level and lack of a support system.

I am dedicated to helping children, adolescents, and families begin to heal and get "unstuck" by freeing themselves of distressing and sometimes debilitating feelings such as depression, anxiety, and feeling out of control. I believe awareness and insight into your child's feelings and behaviors and your feelings and behaviors, is the great gift of psychotherapy.

Sexuality and relationships are complex, and sex therapy is not just about sex. Great sex is more about your relationship with yourself and others than it is about technique. In sex therapy, we identify and work through the emotional issues that contribute to sexual problems by using cognitive therapy to change problematic thoughts and attitudes and incorporate behavioral techniques to change physical symptoms and behavior. I use a sexual health model and work with individuals and couples of any sexual orientation & lifestyle. Interventions include psychoeducation about sex, mindfulness exercises, and repairing relationship issues.
