I have worked in the field of social services and sex education for over 20 years. As a therapist, I approach each person from a strengths-based and nonjudgmental place. I believe we are all "imperfect" humans working to create the most meaningful and healthiest life possible for ourselves, but sometimes we could use a little extra help. My style is warm and I value developing a trusting and effective working relationship. I work to create safe and affirming space to help clients share and explore areas of their lives which may feel vulnerable, stuck or uncertain. I believe that every single day we have an opportunity to start again, to practice gratitude and to also mindfully honor those places where we feel stuck or challenged. My approach to therapy integrates cognitive behavioral therapy while also using techniques from solution-focused therapy, psychodynamic therapies and mindfulness. When helpful, I’m also able to incorporate psycho-education around sexuality, sexual diversity and sexual health. I work with individuals, couples and families.

I have a Masters in Social Work and a PhD in Human Sexuality. I have a strong interest in working with adults, couples, parents and families. My main specializations include concerns, questions or challenges regarding sexuality, body image, family conflict, separation & divorce, dating and relationships, infertility, pregnancy loss, pregnancy and parenting, depression & anxiety and life transitions. I am a kink-aware professional, poly-friendly, and LGBTQ+ friendly. My office is a comfortable place for sexual minority-identified clients.

I look forward to hearing from you.
