About

I work with individuals and partners from diverse backgrounds and life experiences. My areas of expertise are challenges with relationships and sexuality, communication, intimacy, desire discrepancy, infidelity, sexual orientation, gender, and romantic and sexual life styles as well as self-discovery and sexuality through the life span. As a sex therapist I am trained to assist you with sensitivity and competence to address these issues. My goal is to support people in their self-realization and growth as relational and sexual beings and to collaborate with you to strengthen your emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.
As a certified sex therapist with the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists I use a client-centered and empowering approach of talk therapy and psycho-education. I teach non-violent communication methods and use attachment and mindfulness based modalities, as well as psycho-dynamic and feminist approaches in my work.
Having lived and worked in various parts of the world has helped me to be attuned to issues of oppression and identity. I am trained and competent to work with people of different ethnicity and cultures, LGBTQIA communities and alternative lifestyles. I am non-judgmental and sex-positive, my style is open and direct and I feel honored to work my clients.
