CA Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC #50718), Pepperdine Malibu MFT human sexuality professor, Western Region past president and past board of directors member for the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS) with a Doctor of Human Sexuality degree (D.H.S.) from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality (IASHS). My philosophy is centered on empathetic, sex-positive support with a special emphasis on pleasure enhancement. People deserve erotic fulfillment within their relationships & a place to explore ways to live a more authentic & enjoyable sexual lifestyle free of guilt, shame, & self-judgment.
My work with erotic communities focuses on lifestyle introduction, exploration, self-acceptance, processing interpersonal relationships & experiences related to identity formation, coming out, internalized anxieties, & mental health concerns for individuals, couples, & families of LGBTQQIA+, BDSM, kink, fetish, sex work, non-monogamy, & alt communities.
My work with sex therapy/sexual concerns focuses on anxiety reduction, mindfulness, challenging sexual discomfort, sensate focus exercises, & experiential & pleasure education for erection difficulties, early & delayed ejaculation, performance anxiety, orgasm difficulties, low sexual desire, intimacy and communication challenges, & relationship concerns.
