In addition to my traditional therapy services, I also offer LGBTQIA Clinical Consultation Services to colleagues seeking dialogue around either navigating the intersection of being a therapist in the LGBTQ+ Community and/or all other colleagues seeking to consult around challenging cases involving members of the community.
My goal is to create a safe space where everyone can feel heard and validated. I have experience treating depression, anxiety, relationship problems, grief, and transitional issues. I have a passion for working with adolescents, both individually and with their families. Adolescence can be a challenging times for families and I believe in creating an open environment for encouraging both communication and the acceptance of needed privacy. I have extensive training and experience in systemic family therapy. This means that I am able to treat not only the individual, but also the entire family of origin, where appropriate.

I have extensive experience with the LGBTQ community.
I believe that mental health issues arise when we are faced with overwhelming emotions in isolation. Without the necessary support, emotions get so big and daunting that we defend ourselves against them, leading to numbness, anxiety, and depression. My goal is to invite intense emotions into the room so that we can learn to regulate them together and they can be reincorporated into the psyche, leading to a fuller and healthier life.

My practice is composed equally of heterosexual and LGBTQ patients and I also supervise other therapists.
When it comes to sex and relationship problems, many of us lead lives of quiet desperation. Sometimes you can be lying in bed next to someone and feel a million miles apart. I am a licensed psychotherapist, specializing in couple therapy and sex therapy. I am the New York Times best-selling author of "She Comes First," and I regularly contribute to major publications such as The Atlantic, The Economist and CNN Health amongst others. Talking about sex and relationships is hard, but self-silencing is even harder. My approach is solutions-oriented, with an emphasis on honest communication, and I give homework in between sessions.

I have particular experience with LGBTQ+ communities, as well as with writers, designers, and artists in the performing and visual arts.
I’ve been in private practice since 2004, working with adults individually, in couples, and in groups. I’m currently practicing in Marfa, Texas, as well as remotely in New York City. My style is warm, empathic, and collaborative. I strive to create a non-judgmental space where you can be yourself and share freely. You’ll find me listening intently, asking questions, but also allowing for moments of quiet reflection. My approach is informed by my training in psychoanalysis as well as cognitive behavioral therapies, and I believe that a good therapeutic fit, where you feel truly seen and heard, can be transformative.

It is often difficult to identify why we are unhappy. It can feel like something has disconnected us from the sense of spontaneous creativity and joy which defines a good life. Instead of freedom and self-determination, we feel trapped and pressured by society's demands, unsatisfying relationships, or feelings that we don't know how to address. I would work with you in therapy to clarify what you're feeling and how you can achieve your goals, so that you can reconnect with your own place of authenticity, power, and creative engagement. I am also fully trained in clinical hypnosis, and can discuss this option based on your interest.

You should feel really good about embarking on your quest for therapy. It is hard to take the first step - especially during this time of profound loss, stress, heightened awareness, and change. Most people are feeling increasingly exhausted, anxious, activated, and sad. While it is vital that we center radical, mindful care of ourselves and our relationships, it is also the hardest, most exhausting time to do this work.

And, creating a life of extraordinary meaning in the midst of this suffering is possible. Having extensively trained in using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with one of the ACT co-creators, I locate problems people are experiencing as arising from their environment/context. This includes past experiences, social structures of power and oppression, relationships, and so on.
