AASECT Certified Sex Therapist available to help you experience relationships and sexuality in self-defined, healthy ways. Are you looking for more satisfaction in life? Or maybe struggling with out-of-control sexual behaviors? I believe it's important that you find a therapist that is the right fit for you. I offer counseling services to Couples, Individuals, and Families. After spending 23 years in high tech, my passion for helping others develop their careers and seek personal growth led to a natural transition to working as a psychotherapist.
I work with straight and gay and lesbian clients, and those who are in non-traditional families, including multiple partners (polyamory). I've also received specialized training in Sex Therapy, Trauma (PTSD / EMDR), and in working with Out-of-Control Sexual Behaviors (OCSB).
My practice also includes weekly psychotherapy groups for women and men dealing with sexual and relationship health. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, an EMDR Approved Consultant, and a Certified Group Psychotherapist. Call and see if we're a good fit to work together.
