If you have concerns about your sex or sexuality (orientation, desire discrepancies, performance anxiety, sex/porn "addiction," interest in kink /BDSM, or being in an open/non-monogamous/poly relationship), the search for help can feel overwhelming at times. No matter how big or small your sexual and relationship concerns might seem, you are not alone. Just like you, many people find it difficult to navigate the complexities of sex, arousal, and relationships. However, those who get the right support for their mental and sexual health are often calmer, more confident, experience more pleasure, and feel more fulfilled in life overall.

I am also kink and ethical non-monogamy knowledgable and offer support with issues pertaining to intimacy and alternative lifestyles.
Do you feel disconnected from yourself and others around you? Do you feel unsure how to express your true self or live the life you want? As a Gender, Sex, and Relationship Diversity knowledgable therapist, I offer a supportive environment to address issues in life that may be holding you back. Sometimes it is your own beliefs about yourself or your true potential that is your greatest barrier. Therapy can help uncover the barriers that are in the way and learn skills and techniques for how to work with yourself and collaborate with life so that you feel like you are living as opposed to just surviving.
