Are you and your partner(s) at a place where you realize that your communication, sex life, and emotional safety are at a breaking point and you need more help? As a sex and couple therapist, I believe that all problems are relational- one of you is not "the problem"- your patterns of relating to one another that have become twisted with hurt and resentment over time are the problem. My style of conducting therapy is validating, structured, goal-oriented, observational and direct, with an element of coaching through in-session interventions and homework to complete outside of our meetings.
I am skilled in working with more than one person in the room. My goal is to get you and your partner(s) to speak to each other differently. I specialize in couples with sexual dysfunction, communication difficulties, trust issues, trauma history, anxiety, and socialized gender-based disagreements. I am LGBTQIA+, sex-worker, kink and polyamory affirming.
I recognize that taking the step to reach out to a therapist is a great leap towards change, and also one of the hardest things to do. I try to make this go as smoothly as possible by responding promptly, answering any questions you may have, and referring you to one of my colleagues ASAP. I look forward to hearing from you!

I am systemically trained, meaning that when I see couples I conceptualize their issues as relational- the person is not the problem, the interaction pattern is the problem. We will discuss your family and relationship histories, assess your sex life and beliefs, and discuss strategies for better communication and receiving the connection you want in life.
