I am sex positive and I respect all sexual orientations, relationships and behaviors that are consensual and non-exploitative.
I am a sex therapist and couples counselor. I provide expert care for couples’ issues, intimacy struggles, sexual struggles, infidelity, sexual compulsivity, sexual addiction and trauma. My goal is to create an intimate space where both partners can share their experience and feelings. I also work with individuals on their relationship issues. My intention is to share a journey that will allow you to unlock the whatever it is that is keeping you from having a happy, fulfilling life. The work that you do now can positively impact you and your partner for a life time. If you are serious about change deep transformation is possible.

Kink / Poly knowledgeable/friendly.
Seeking out therapy is a very heroic action in and of itself, perhaps your first proactive step into redefining your sense of self, creating a new life story, and taking a leap into the direction of self-care. If you are reading this, you may be in a state of uncertainty, or perhaps connected more deeply than you would like to be to the effects of depression, anxiety, or your daily life situations. Maybe, you are wrestling in a relationship with someone you love; perhaps, finding the words to communicate who you are and how you feel may seem unattainable and challenging at best.

I provide a safe and welcoming space to discuss anything from sexual/relationship issues postpartum, to gender dysphoria, making good sex great, erectile problems, pain during sex, kink , or disturbing sexual interests.
Let’s talk about sex and relationships! I am here to help you feel comfortable working through the hard stuff, and sex and relationship issues can be some of the hardest stuff for people to talk about. Together, we’ll create a comfortable, judgment-free space to explore your wants and needs, improve communication with others in your life, and promote intimate, meaningful, and healthy (sexual) relationships. My aim is to help you, and any potentially involved partner(s), to reach your full personal, relationship, and sexual potential in order to lead your happiest and most fulfilling life.

Are you avoiding life by scrolling through social media, gaming or binging Netflix? Do you feel unfulfilled and desire a deeper connection with yourself and others? Are you overwhelmed with overworking yourself, saying yes when it benefits others and causes you more stress? Are you beating yourself up because you’re struggling with life and searching for answers as to why life often feels so hard? Do you want to learn how to move with the ups and downs of life instead of getting tossed around as you try to resist them? I can help you do more than just merely exist in this life of yours.

Therapy is an amazing placebo. You do not NEED a therapist to learn, transform, and grow your awareness of yourself. I firmly believe whatever it is you are seeking to learn, change, or make peace with, you can do it. The benefit of working with a trained therapist who sees you, gives your sense of agency and innate wisdom the respect it deserves, and offers an outside perspective on your experience informed by evidenced-based theory and practice, is that the pace of growth is greatly accelerated.

I am a psychotherapist seeing adults and teens for individual therapy. Various needs and issues bring clients in, including feelings of loneliness or stuckness, sadness, relationship distress, anxiety, or challenges in the way they see and relate to themselves. They seek more meaning in their life, in their relationships, and in their actions. They are looking for a change in their life that they may not be able to articulate just yet. Though perhaps unclear to start, they are looking for an evolution of the heart, mind, and soul.

The world is fast-paced and busy, but therapy is where I can journey with clients through their experiences. I approach therapy collaboratively because all clients bring something to the table, and the client is the expert on their lived experience. I enjoy working with all ages and groupings and have experience with children, adolescents, young adults, adults, families, and couples. As someone who has personally been through many transitions in life, I am excited to assist others in transition; I am particularly humbled when I have the opportunity to work with others who have experienced trauma.

Are you finding it difficult to express your needs with someone in your life? Are you concerned that you and your loved one keep misunderstanding each other due to differences in cultural or gendered communication styles? Maybe you're going through a life transition that's adding to your stress levels, and leaving you both feeling in the dark about how to give and receive support? Or perhaps you are happy in your partnership, but are eager to grow together and deepen your bond even further? I can shine a light on those areas of difficulty for you both that remain obscured from view, and illuminate a new way forward.

I use both time tested and cutting edge methods to break the cycle of addiction and/or bad behaviors. I never suggest to a client to do something that I have not done. I assist the client to stay abstinent for the long-term, and I assist the client to restore relationships. I love being able to guide a client through the changes they want to make on their life journey. I witness extraordinary miracles daily.

It takes courage to reach out for support. Often people reach out when their usual strategies to manage their life fail, and they feel stuck. Are you feeling like you can't think or talk your way out of your unhappiness? The role of the therapist is as a facilitator or guide to help you identify the patterns that are no longer working for you, and develop strategies to heal and change. I will work with you to develop a plan in therapy that meets your individual needs and goals. My style is to give a combination of compassion, honest feedback, non-judgment, humor, and warmth.

My therapeutic approach is designed for each person's individual internal world. I design each session using a variety of active and engaged interventions, like EMDR, IFS, and Process. We work to uncover the hurt parts that have taken over your life. The “stuck-ness” seems to dissipate. In an atmosphere of love and total acceptance, I use proven interventions to bring awareness and internal movement.

Deciding to seek help for yourself or a loved one takes courage and strength. I believe that each individual has the capacity to grow and change throughout the life span. My training and experience can assist you in recognizing patterns that may no longer be serving you, and in clarifying your values. As you learn what values are important to you, these values can serve as a compass no matter how difficult life becomes. I am interested in working with people who are open to deep inquiry, and understanding more about themselves and the way that they are navigating life.
