As a sex therapist, I specialize in treating sexual issues. These often include relationship challenges and sexual problems such as lack of desire/low libido, difficulty with arousal, premature ejaculation and trouble reaching orgasm. Anxiety about sexual performance, lost intimacy, sexual abuse, infidelity, menopause, illness and aging can also interfere with sexual satisfaction. Sex therapy addresses problematic or illegal sexual behaviors, sexual compulsivity, paraphilias and fetishes. Clients benefit from exploring issues surrounding sexual orientation, gender identity, asexuality, polyamory and kink. I am passionate about helping clients overcome the issues that affect their sexuality so that they more fully enjoy life.

Life is tragic. No one get's out clean. We use things like alcohol, drugs, sex, control, codependency, work, serial relationships, and many other coping skills to try and make it through our pain. Maybe you feel stuck or lost or unable to take another step and so you numb out or check out or run or hide or fight and attack. Whatever you are doing that isn't working, the truth is there is another way. There is a way to be comfortable in your own skin. There is a way to have stable relationships. There is a way to have hope. While there is breath, there is hope.

When I made the decision to become a therapist, it was because two things became clear to me: I love people and I love learning about their why. Now, as a pre-licensed clinician, I get the opportunity to sit with you and be wildly curious about who you are and who you want to become while acknowledging and processing the pain, challenges, and celebrations along the way. I am passionate about the process of unraveling that therapy gives each client, and I look forward to facilitating that process with you, regardless of where you are in your journey.

From 2012 to 2020, we established close working relationships with doctors that prescribe Suboxone medications and facilitated over 7 thousand counseling sessions. I authored the books “Clinician’s Guide for Medication Assisted Treatment and “A Counseling Plan for Medication Assisted Treatment.” In 2014 we expanded our service by developing the video counseling practice.

Making the step to begin the counseling process can be scary and overwhelming; but it can be the first step toward healing and change. I absolutely love working with individuals and couples. Walking along side clients as they journey their way through hurt, anger, grief, frustration, and other emotions, is my pleasure. Some of the clients with whom I have worked came to me when things seemed to be very grim and hopeless. It has been my pleasure to watch them put in the hard work and commitment to the therapeutic process and come out as stronger individuals and couples.

Perhaps you are feeling disconnected from others or frustrated by an unsatisfying sex life. Do you feel as if your sexual behavior is out of control?

Or, a parent who is helplessly watching your child or adolescent struggle educationally or in social relationships.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Downtown, Nashville using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit.
