The majority of people who come to see me are ready for change. Something in their life has stopped working. Something has become a barrier to happiness. Mostly, my clients are high achieving individuals who (to the outside world) look like they have it all together. Internally, they struggle with anxiety, depression, and low self esteem. Are you suffering silently? Do you often feel alone? Do you struggle with perfectionism? Maybe addictive behaviors have become your way of coping. Maybe your relationships are struggling. Do you have unhealed trauma? If you are ready to heal and need guidance, I am here to help.

Seeking out help takes courage. There is a level of vulnerability that is required when meeting someone new and sharing material that has possibly never been shared before. In fact, this can feel daunting. Perhaps you aren't where you'd like to be in life. There's a chance you aren't satisfied in your relationship(s). Or maybe you just need some help because what is being done simply is not working anymore. I believe the goal is to grow into our healthiest and most authentic selves.

We are meant to heal. The relationship of therapist and client takes place within a safe haven created by respect, acceptance, attuned connection and trust. The process of healing unfolds through making sense of one’s story ~ understanding how distortions and survival modes may have developed in response to real life experiences, and responding with compassion and without self-blame. Within this alliance, painful feelings and thoughts can be explored and expressed, as well as new ways of coping and new ways of relating. I have worked with individuals, couples and families as they experience the challenges of relationships, and the loss and transitions of life passages.

I work with all kinds of issues within the spectrum of sexuality, such as creating intimacy among couples, navigating specific fetishes, navigating open relationships, navigating decreased sex drive as a result of medications, anxiety surrounding sexuality and sexual experiences, finding pleasurable sexual experiences with a micropenis, and even things on the heavier side, such as attraction to children, sex addiction, and engagement in prostitution.
