I support individuals and couples with relationship conflict, sexual concerns, and adjustment to life transitions. Clients come to therapy with some common relationship issues: feeling disconnected, noticing the "same argument" on repeat, discomfort or awkwardness talking about sex, a sexless marriage, mismatched desire, painful intercourse, questions about sexual functioning, and more. With advanced clinical training in relationship and sex therapy, I’ll help you to better understand your needs and goals, build empathy and emotional intimacy, and cultivate more connection, pleasure, and trust in your relationships.

Challenges arise throughout life. At times you may feel stuck, lost, misunderstood, or disconnected. This can lead to anxiety, sadness, and frustration. I work with young adults and teens in various transitions in their lives who are struggling, and believe relief from such negative places is possible. Maybe you're trying to navigate relationships with family, friends, or co-workers; or trying to establish a healthy personal or professional relationship. Maybe you're trying to manage different personalities at work. Or, maybe you're a new parent trying to manage your changed relationship with your partner , and raise a child.

We all deserve to be happy and fulfilled in our relationships. However, healthy and meaningful relationships do not come without work. Whether it is with your intimate partner , friends, family or coworkers, the quality of our relationships has a direct impact on our mental health. I help individuals understand how their past experiences, sometimes traumatic, impact their present struggles related to anxiety, stress or depression, and often interfere with their ability to cultivate and maintain relationship satisfaction.

I help adult individuals and couples through major life transitions for themselves, their relationships and their work. In therapy I help you understand what you are feeling, so you can come up with ways to better cope and problem-solve during challenging times, develop a stronger sense of identity, develop and exercise self-compassion, and develop insight into unhelpful patterns. In doing so, you can improve your psychological well-being, achieve your goals, and live a more fulfilling life. I believe you are the only expert in your own life, so my role is to help you discover the best way for you to navigate this transition.

You deserve pleasure, regardless of what you’ve experienced. I can help you develop confidence in communicating your desires, feelings, and boundaries. You’ll learn to not just survive but thrive after trauma. We’ll work on addressing anxiety and avoidance. Sex therapy can help if you want to work on something and your partner doesn’t. In sex therapy, all partners are welcome. You also can attend regular individual therapy if you want to work on sexual shame, trying to date, or exploring gender or sexuality. Together, we’ll explore your mental health challenges – I will join you in this experience as you navigate troubled waters.

While my passion is working with couples and families, my previous experience includes working with individuals and adolescents and facilitating substance use and trauma groups in an Intensive Outpatient setting.
I approach my clinical work with an emphasis on relationships, attachment and the importance of multi-cultural and relational approaches. I understand the value of knowing where a client comes from and where they have been in order to collaboratively develop interventions and approaches that are safe, effective and familiar. I believe that in order to truly help clients they, and I, must understand the context in which they live and learn and that the work we do in the clinical room must be transferable to their everyday life. Many of my clients are seeking guidance on how to engage in and maintain healthy relationships.

The crux of my approach is simple, but versatile: I use anything and everything available to make breakthroughs possible. We all do better with an expansive toolkit. EMDR for "stuckness" / trauma and Gottman methods for couples to repair & connect. (Well worth YouTubing either for a sense of them.) Once we understand each other and you are insight-equipped, we'll put insight into action. But in ways that feel authentic to your personal experience of things. Clients often report that my approachable, humorous, "very human" style makes therapy a much more effective experience even when exploring difficult content.
