I am an AASECT certified sex therapist and I have interest in working with sexual functioning issues, sexual identity and gender identity issues.
The goal of my practice is to provide a safe place for people to explore their lives and learn skills to help them cope in a safe and nonjudgmental environment. We will work together to help you figure out what issues you want to work on and how we can best address them.

I have experience working with clients who have been through trauma, are exploring their sexuality and/or gender identity, navigating substance abuse, experiencing grief or loss, and working through relationship challenges.
I believe that my role as a therapist is to create a space where you feel supported, safe, and validated as we navigate challenges together. I will be there beside you as you gain the skills to shape your life the way you envision and work towards your goals. I think that everyone can benefit from therapy, whether it’s short-term to help you through a life transition or longer-term support, I will be here to help and accept you as you are. Many people who are members of the LGBTQ+, kink, or poly communities can feel stigmatized during therapy and I aim to provide a non-judgmental atmosphere for all my clients.

Additional training in the areas of sex and couples therapy helps with the extensive work that I do with clients in the areas of intimacy and vulnerability.
My practice is based on the belief that healing and emotional growth take place in an environment of safety, empathy and reflection. Active listening, validation, and mirroring encourage a client to slip past old barriers and reach new levels of self-awareness and self-acceptance. Together, we explore the experiences and expectations that have driven maladaptive patterns, as well as the ways in which emotional wounds power the repetition of unsatisfying behaviors, relationships, and self-defeating life narratives. The joy I've take in my work for 25 years facilitates the bonds that form between me and my clients.

I also enjoy exploring sexuality , gender, and identity and specialize in working with bisexual, pansexual, sexually-fluid, bi-curious, and label-free multisexual adults.
Wanting to be loved and accepted doesn’t make you needy, or extra, or selfish, or weak. It makes you human. In our work together my focus is building a relationship where you feel comfortable exploring what you think and feel, want and need. My style as a therapist is warm, relaxed, and conversational. I use playfulness, curiosity, creativity, and laughter to support the therapy process and I prioritize taking time to get to know you and what's important to you.

While I enjoy practicing with a wide variety of issues and types of people, I specialize in relationships (straight and gay), young adults, LGBT concerns, couples, anxiety and depression, and life transitions and losses.

My ideal client is someone who is really ready to do some at times difficult, yet transformative work. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, ADHD and the common co-occurance of these disorders - although I tend to treat symptoms more than I focus on diagnosis. I use the most up-to-date and most-effective scientific methods for treatment. However, I am by no means a dry and robotic person as this last sentence might suggest! In addition to skill-building, I further help my clients dig deep and learn more about themselves through investigative conversations with the hope of minimizing or even eliminating symptoms.

So many of us have trouble making decisions or deepening relationships, because we learned to connect with others needs above our own. While this was highly adaptive, and even necessary in the past, it can lead to a sense of disconnection and restlessness. Relationally this may manifest as disappointment or unexpressed conflict, due to an engrained pattern of avoidance. In this state, it is difficult to know what actions to take towards change. Reaching out for help, though imperative, can be just as challenging as continuing in the pain. This is what causes most of my clients to reach out.

Sex Therapy
Sex therapists in Downtown, Washington offer help with sexual concerns by educating, using talk therapy, offering homework exercises and resources for further exploration to either individuals or couples. Sex therapy helps couples talk about sex with each other. A sex therapist feels comfortable talking about sex and is aware of how anxious you might feel talking about this intimate subject with each other and with a near-stranger. They will help set you at ease and guide you into talking about sex. While sex therapists can help with many problems, low sexual desire and frequency disagreements between partners are two of the most frequent concerns they address.
