Ultimately, however, it’s the relationship between you and me that makes the difference.
Usually, when we're facing challenges that feel overwhelming, we crave understanding and acceptance...someone who will listen, provide support and stand side by side with us as we navigate our way through murky waters. We also long for relief from whatever is causing us pain - from harmful behaviors or confusing situations to emotions or thoughts that feel out of control. We want to feel better and to be free - free to take pleasure in the joys and triumphs of our lives and free to live our lives with the confidence that we have the tools and resources to cope with whatever pain may appear.

Sexual orientation, alternative interests (kink), gender identity & fluidity exploration affirmed; alternative relationship dynamics welcome.
Over the course of my career I have become increasingly aware of a demand in the community for Sex Therapy, and have decided to recalibrate my practice accordingly. I am engaged in a comprehensive training program facilitated by the Sexual Health Alliance on my path to becoming an AASECT-certified Sex Therapist. My background in substance abuse and trauma has largely informed this decision. I continue to serve individuals seeking to manage compulsive behaviors, AD(H)D, anxiety disorders, and mood symptoms through this transition to a sex-centered practice.

I utilize an array of approaches and offer tools that can help address current concerns. Additionally, this allows for us to explore the roots of life's challenges. I see our relationship as a dyad of mutual trust that serves as the vessel for our work. Using an attachment framework, informed by my fellowship at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy + Psychoanalysis (ICP+P), I hope to bring a sense of safety, connection, compassion, and acceptance. At your pace, we can direct our focus to integrate mind-body techniques. This is to offer relief and learn more about yourself.

First, we create a safe and trusting relationship .
In today’s world, feeling chronically stressed, anxious, worried, and afraid of catastrophe seem to be a normal way of life for many of us; it may seem as if we have no choice or power to be any other way. But my years of training and experience tells me this is not the case. There is a way to create a sense of inner calm; to increase focus, attention, and concentration; to reduce stress; better regulate strong emotions; to cultivate greater self-compassion toward yourself and others; and to decrease or even eliminate unhealthy levels of anxiety and depression.

I genuinely enjoy building a trusting and friendly relationship with my clients.

The power of taking time for yourself and feeling heard by another person is often underestimated.

In addition to individual therapy, I frequently work with couples on relationship issues.
Normal life events can be stressful when they exceed your ability to cope. Losses like the death of a loved one, separation/divorce, relocation or retirement, or an "empty nest" may threaten your emotional and physical health. Even positive events like marriage or the birth of a child require substantial adjustment. While small amounts of stress can be a positive motivator, prolonged exposure to stress may lead to anxiety, depression, and physical health problems. If you are feeling overwhelmed or unsure of how to cope with the demands placed on you, it is probably time to see a therapist.

With over 25 years of experience working with adults, adolescents, couples and families, I practice an insight oriented and holistic approach, attending to physical, emotional and spiritual healing and wellness.
In today's culture, we are often so focused on dealing with the many stressors of everyday life and on taking care of others, we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious and depleted. Making an appointment for therapy with me is the first step towards taking care of yourself and feeling better. In my experience, lasting change can begin to take place as you share with a therapist who will listen compassionately, join with you to understand your experience, and guide you to find and use the tools to make postive changes and create the life you want.

Couples Counseling Therapists

Does couples counseling work?

Research shows that couples counseling is effective; it can reduce relationship distress and improve emotional awareness, communication, empathy, intimacy, and overall relationship satisfaction. For example, emotionally focused therapy was found to be effective for about 75 percent of couples, and those benefits lasted at least two years.

When should a couple seek counseling?

Couples can benefit from counseling if they consistently struggle in their relationship. They may have lost the ability to communicate effectively, become entrenched in harmful patterns, begun to fight more than usual, broken the other’s trust, suffered from a mental or physical illness, or faced any number of other challenges. Many therapists offer free consultations, so if a couple isn’t sure whether therapy is necessary, asking directly can provide clarity.

How can I get my partner to go to couples therapy?

The decision to seek couples therapy is often driven by one partner, who then convinces the other to participate. When discussing the idea, the initiator should be direct and assertive. They can state the problems they see and explain how the relationship would benefit from therapy. In more serious cases, they can also explain how their relationship may suffer without making any changes or seeking professional help.

How does a couple prepare for couples counseling?

The anticipation of beginning couples counseling can be difficult—sometimes more difficult than the first session itself. Taking a few moments to reflect can allay those concerns: What are the current challenges? When and how did they begin? What do they want the relationship to look like in the future? Reflecting on these questions can help individuals or couples articulate their goals. Of course, the therapist will also ask questions and guide couples through the process.
