Let’s face it: relationships can be hard work. They require continued trust, communication, and wise awareness of each other’s needs. I work with couples, including polyamory and non-monogamy, to build connection and intimacy in their relationships. I particularly love helping partners find ways to communicate about difficult and sensitive issues. This is especially important when partners struggle to connect around sexual wants and needs. These conversations need an atmosphere of trust, acceptance, and nonjudgment, as partners learn to validate and respond to each other's sexual feelings.
As a sex therapist, I specialize in all things sexual that interact with people's wellness. I work with individuals and couples navigating any issues related to sexuality. I help individuals ground themselves in the present and connect with values. I help couples using the Gottman method, a data-driven approach, to improve connection and conflict management.
When I work with clients around sexuality, I create an atmosphere of warmth, welcome, and nonjudgment. I also have a unique style that is active and engaging. I am not your "Minnesota Nice" therapist. I am somewhat irreverent and comfortable with profanity, finding that laughter in the face of suffering can be a powerful source of healing and connection.
