Are you looking to explore your sexuality or improve sexual satisfaction? Do you experience pain with sex or sexual dysfunction? Struggling to develop or maintain intimacy? Find yourself questioning your gender and/or sexual identity? These questions and so many more are common and can be explored in sex therapy! I am a sex positive therapist who believes addressing our sexual health is an integral part of treating the whole person. I help adult individuals and couples in monogamous and non-monogamous relationships navigate the sexual health challenges and difficulties that occur in our lives.
It's rare to find a provider in ND and northern MN who has specialized training and expertise in sexual health, as a certified sex therapist through AASECT, I can offer this. I recognize there is a need in our community and I want to provide safe, professional and compassionate access for those with concerns regarding gender, sex, and sexuality.
It takes courage to look for a provider, to call for an appointment, and to show up for session. It's hard to talk about our struggles, but you've already made a great first step by looking for a therapist! I'd love the opportunity to work with you and/or your partner(s) and improve your sexual wellness.
