Announcement icon I'm seeing clients via Zoom during the COVID-19 shelter-at-home order, so if you want therapy during this time, let me know!
ACCEPTING NEW COUPLES/FAMILIES/POLYCULES - PLEASE EMAIL RATHER THAN CALLING! ++ In couples therapy with me, I help by teaching you communication strategies to help lessen defensiveness and increase empathy and warmth in your relationship. I intervene to stop or change interactions that are keeping you from getting the connection you want. I provide mediation and structure for difficult conversations. And by teaching in-the-moment self-regulation and co-regulation techniques, I help you and your partner to speak from and listen with your best selves.
I help couples/polycules achieve the nonmonogamous experiences they want, navigate kinky dynamics, negotiate different levels of desire, minimize friction around different sexual orientations between partners, cope with the ways othering and social stigma can affect intimacy, and become aware of the gender dynamics that can arise in queer and trans couples.
I welcome neurodivergent clients! If you have or suspect you have autism or ADHD and you’re wanting a couples counselor with experience and expertise in that, let’s talk. I use clear and direct communication myself, and I’m able to accommodate clients who are nonverbal.
