About

Therapy is a collaboration where we discover creative solutions to your problems, find strong clarity, and discover your truth and powerful, inner voice. I believe in the resiliency of the human spirit and the ability we all have to rise above adversity and intentionally craft our lives. My approach is eclectic and I use solution-focused, evidence-based methods in addition to traditional modalities such as mindfulness and mind/body techniques. Therapy isn't about finding out what is "wrong" with you. At the heart of it, it is about learning, understanding, and discovering the beauty and courage that has been inside all along.
I am a nationally certified sex therapist. This means I have undergone many hours of post-doc training and supervision in sexuality as required by AASECT (American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists). Since I love learning, I will always continue my education in this fascinating field.
I also coach and mentor creative professionals for optimal performance. If you are interested in this service, I would love to speak with you!
