Whether it's exploring sexuality, navigating faith deconstruction, or a deeper understanding of identity, my approach is warm, caring, & tailored to you.
Feeling weighed down by the burdens of life yet struggling to find anyone who understands? Is stress, anxiety, or depression starting to impact relationships, work, or your sex life? Do you feel disconnected, trapped in cycles you can’t change, or haunted by the past? Are you unsure about who you are, who you want to be, or how to love all the parts of yourself? Since men are often expected to be strong, stoic, & steadfast, we often hide behind a mask, unsure about the internal swirl of emotions, doubts, & fears. You're not alone & what you face isn’t insurmountable. The journey of exploration, healing, & transformation begins here.

I also do sex therapy work to help couples increase levels of intimacy and closeness in the relationship.
Have you had a recent transition or life events lately that feels like it has thrown you or your relationship off? In my work I strive to think about the best ways to support big transitions (whether that is a break up, divorce, trauma or having a baby) that can make you feel a loss of control. I can help you ground back into yourself, find your most authentic self and support you in building a skill set for future life challenges. Also, if you have just had a baby and are experiencing the transition to motherhood as different than what was expected or then is portrayed as on social media, I can help support you.

I work best with those who think outside the box. These are clients who would rather live authentically than fit into the societal mold, whether this pertains to one's career, relationship(s), sexuality or gender. Our societal norms aren't just unhelpful in certain situations; they can be downright harmful. Trying to adhere to monogamy is going to make a polyamorous person miserable, and trying to conform to neurotypical social cues can be terribly disheartening for someone with autism. And some norms, like how we're taught to perform masculinity, can be damaging for everyone, no matter our identity.

My specializations lie in treating those who are exploring their sex lives, whether it be individually or with a partner(s).
As a clinician, I work from a trauma-informed lens using EMDR and other therapies. I work with individuals, partners, couples, and polycules on a variety of issues related to love, sex and relationships. As a clinical sexologist, I find that an integrative model of drawing on all of the various types of therapies, uniquely mixed together to assist each of my clients in meeting them where they are, is how I am most effective in helping clients reach their therapeutic goals. I believe in the ethos of “helping others help themselves”; as a therapist, this is still my greatest strength and the cornerstone that has shaped my practice.

As a certified sex therapist, I specialize in issues of sexuality, intimacy, sexual function, expression, and addiction.
Is pornography, cybersex, or sexual addiction impacting your life? Are you feeling alone, sexually rejected, or struggling with low desire in your relationship? Do you want more sexual and emotion intimacy? Are you concerned about your sexual identity or sexual functioning? It is common for people to encounter sexual problems, at any age. What is uncommon is for people to do something about those problems before they irreparably damage their self-esteem and relationships. Left unmanaged, anger, shame, and fear increase. The sooner you come in for help the better chance you have of growing a happy, healthy sexual life.

I’ve worked in sexuality for over 15 years helping folks have better sex and more fulfilling relationships.
We all want a life filled with love and pleasure but getting there can seem impossible. Often searching for solutions on your own only makes things worse. While you may feel like a failure or even broken, you have only done your best with what you know. Luckily, there is hope, and that's where working with me comes in! Many of my clients felt lost and hopeless when we met, and were able to overcome hangups & barriers to find ease, joy and comfort in sex again. Without shame muddying the waters, we all have a fantasy of satisfying sex life and not only is it not selfish, but a human right to experience pleasure that we choose freely.

Sex Therapy

Who is sex therapy for?

Sex problems are common in relationships. Many people want a better sex life and want to feel loved and desired by their partner. It is difficult for couples to resolve sexual problems on their own because people often feel ashamed to talk about their sexual desires fearing they are not normal, when in fact a very broad range of preferences and behaviors are normal. A sex therapist can help clarify this and other matters.

Why do people need sex therapy?

Many people do not know how to talk about their erotic needs or their emotional needs, both of which are addressed in sex therapy. Couples often live with sexual difficulties for years before seeking help, and in that time, partners may experience so much disappointment and alienation that they may fear their problems mean they are incompatible. Once people experience disappointment, it is difficult to find resolution without help.

What happens in sex therapy?

People have many misconceptions about what takes place in sex therapy. First, it is a form of talk therapy in which partners discuss their sexual concerns; it does not involve touching or physical exploration of any kind. Sex therapy typically helps couples get comfortable talking to each other about sex so that, in the privacy of their home life, they can openly discuss their sexual desires and make decisions about what they want to do. Couples are typically assigned activities to do at home that build intimacy skills.

What kinds of problems do sex therapists treat?

Very often, partners differ in their degree of sexual desire and struggle over how often to have sex. Or they may have fights about porn use or have difficulty connecting sexually after one partner is unfaithful. Men may have problems with premature ejaculation. Women may find themselves struggling to become aroused or to achieve an orgasm. Sometimes partners feel like they have lost the sense of attraction to their partner. These are all common issues dealt with in sex therapy.
