Marriage and relationships are challenging and it is even harder to ask for what you want. Often people believe they are broken or their desires are shameful and I work to create change and facilitate communication. As a licensed psychotherapist, specializing in sex therapy , I work to help individuals, partners, and couples to connect. It is my passion to heal shame, have the hard talks, and facilitate communication. Personally, I know the challenges of maintaining the passion in a long term relationship and I don't believe it is normal to give up on intimacy.

I am a sex positive therapist with a background in working with trauma and body image issues.
If I were to pick one theme that runs through my therapy work, it would have to be Empowerment. I believe completely in people's abilities to change their own lives. In whatever age, gender, sexuality , ethnicity, or culture we feel we belong to; we have the power to decide how to respond, perceive, define, believe, and present ourselves to others. I feel my role as a therapist is to ask questions, be curious and draw out the power of each person's own spiritual, emotional, and relational authority over their own lives.

Do you ever ask yourself, "Why do I keep doing the same things but expect different outcomes?" Or "Do I look at the world differently than all my family and friends?" Life can feel stressful, overwhelming, and out of control at times. I try to help life feel a little bit more manageable and work through issues at your own pace. Psychotherapy is about an exploration of self and the world around you. As a psychotherapist, I am here to provide guidance through this exploration in a safe place and to improve interaction with those you love.

I have over 40 years experience, 20 in the Monterey Peninsula. I believe that the key to most emotional and psychological problems lies in relationships, those in the past and in the present. Learned conscious and unconscious behavior patterns can cause difficulties in life, and these behavior problems can be changed or modified. My approach is eclectic, utilizing Gestalt Therapy, psychodrama, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Therapy, and other modalities within a psychodynamic framework. I work with adults, adolescents, couples, and families. I see people who are depressed, stressed, anxious, or who are having relationship or sexual problems.

I warmly welcome you as you are, and hold a safe space to support your intention for growth as your guide, witness, and companion. I enjoy working with clients who want more than traditional “talk” therapy. I offer experiential therapy, so you can go beyond cognitive understanding to having a transformative experience. I have an active style that is more than simply listening. I would describe the way I work as collaborative, curious, and challenging when it needs to be. I identify as a highly sensitive person (HSP) of gifted intelligence, both of which inform my work. My approach is mindfulness-based and somatic.

Sex Therapy
Sex therapists in Monterey offer help with sexual concerns by educating, using talk therapy, offering homework exercises and resources for further exploration to either individuals or couples. Sex therapy helps couples talk about sex with each other. A sex therapist feels comfortable talking about sex and is aware of how anxious you might feel talking about this intimate subject with each other and with a near-stranger. They will help set you at ease and guide you into talking about sex. While sex therapists can help with many problems, low sexual desire and frequency disagreements between partners are two of the most frequent concerns they address.
