About

**CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Has your partner become a roommate instead of a romantic partner? Do one or both of you lack physical desire for each other? Are you struggling with how to reconnect sexually and regain the intimacy you once shared? Or perhaps you want to work individually, feel empowered, and have more joy and pleasure in your life? Working from a strengths based & holistic perspective, I am skilled at creating a warm + open space to help individuals and couples increase intimacy, navigate changing roles, set boundaries, resolve conflicts, heal trauma, and create satisfying relationships.
Using my expertise in cognitive and narrative therapy, I will help you understand how the stories of your life have shaped your experience and worldview of your role in relationships. I will also help you change the thoughts and behaviors about sex and relationships that are getting in the way of your access to pleasure.
I am an LGBTQIA+ ally, and anti-racist. My work is culturally affirming and responsive, meaning that I center and support your cultural beliefs and strengths. I am supportive of all queer identities, and relationship structures, and am kink affirming. Sessions are available in English, French, and Hebrew.
