NOW ACCEPTING CLIENTS VIA TELEHEATH. Are you experiencing relationship issues? Working together, I can help you resolve problems and feelings that may seem overwhelming. Whether you're seeking couples counseling or individual therapy, I'll listen deeply and will help you forge a path towards your goals. You'll find an affirming, supportive environment and strategies to enable you to live your life more fully and joyfully. Clients have told me that my warm, non-judgmental, and collaborative approach helps them feel comfortable working through difficult issues.
If you're a couple, I can help you create a healthier relationship, improve communication, strengthen sexual intimacy, heal from an affair, explore trust issues, and resolve other problems. I work with LGBTQ+ and heterosexual couples; monogamous and consensually non-monogamous relationships; and couples with a wide range of sexual practices.
If you're an individual experiencing relationship problems, anxiety, trauma, loss and grief, sexual problems, LGBTQ+ issues, or life transitions, you'll find a warm and accepting place to explore and resolve your issues. Conveniently located near the Dupont Circle Metro and downtown DC.
