As a sex therapist, I specialize in treating sexual issues. These often include relationship challenges and sexual problems such as lack of desire/low libido, difficulty with arousal, premature ejaculation and trouble reaching orgasm. Anxiety about sexual performance, lost intimacy, sexual abuse, infidelity, menopause, illness and aging can also interfere with sexual satisfaction. Sex therapy addresses problematic or illegal sexual behaviors, sexual compulsivity, paraphilias and fetishes. Clients benefit from exploring issues surrounding sexual orientation, gender identity, asexuality, polyamory and kink. I am passionate about helping clients overcome the issues that affect their sexuality so that they more fully enjoy life.

When I made the decision to become a therapist, it was because two things became clear to me: I love people and I love learning about their why. Now, as a pre-licensed clinician, I get the opportunity to sit with you and be wildly curious about who you are and who you want to become while acknowledging and processing the pain, challenges, and celebrations along the way. I am passionate about the process of unraveling that therapy gives each client, and I look forward to facilitating that process with you, regardless of where you are in your journey.

Making the step to begin the counseling process can be scary and overwhelming; but it can be the first step toward healing and change. I absolutely love working with individuals and couples. Walking along side clients as they journey their way through hurt, anger, grief, frustration, and other emotions, is my pleasure. Some of the clients with whom I have worked came to me when things seemed to be very grim and hopeless. It has been my pleasure to watch them put in the hard work and commitment to the therapeutic process and come out as stronger individuals and couples.

Perhaps you are feeling disconnected from others or frustrated by an unsatisfying sex life. Do you feel as if your sexual behavior is out of control?
