CA Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC #50718), human sexuality professor, past president of the Western Region 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, and mental health concerns for individuals, couples, & families of LGBTQQIA+, BDSM, kink, fetish, sex work, adult industry, alternative sexual expression, poly, people of unique gender identities, orientations, erotic communities and allies.
My work with sex therapy/sexual concern clients focuses on anxiety reduction, mindfulness, challenging sexual discomfort, sensate focus exercises, & experiential and pleasure education using insight-oriented psychotherapy methods for erection difficulties, early/premature ejaculation, performance anxiety, inhibited/delayed ejaculation, pre-orgasmia, low sexual desire, intimacy difficulties, communication problems, & partner relational concerns.
