Announcement icon I respect people's freedom and autonomy when it comes to COVID-19 practices. And I've been offering teletherapy since before it was cool!

About

I love helping people to have a healthy and authentic sex & relationship life whatever that means for them. Topics I often explore with clients include: dating anxiety, attachment styles, sexual trauma, creating healthy boundaries in relationships, increasing emotional intimacy, communication skills, conflict resolution, family-of-origin issues, managing relationships with difficult people, difficulty orgasming, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, exploring kink, opening the relationship, exploring sexual orientation, exploring gender identity, etc.
I'm a Certified Sex Therapist and work with a diverse group of clients in terms of age, race, and sexual history. I am pro-sex worker and an ally for sexual and gender minorities. Nothing shocks me! If you have a sincere desire to have a sex & relationship life that truly aligns with who you are, I am here to help with that!
Don't hesitate to reach out--we respond pretty quickly and will get back to you even if we are full to help you find the right resources. I offer a free 20-minute consultation and online scheduling via my website which you can visit in the link above. I also have an amazing staff therapist and intern as part of my team if budget is a concern.
