I primarily see clients who are struggling with issues related to sexuality. This is broadly defined but would include problems with intimacy (e.g., difficulty maintaining closeness), desire (e.g., not wanting to have sex), arousal (e.g., inability to achieve or maintain erections), and orgasm (e.g., not being able to, or having it happen too quickly). If you are in a committed relationship, I encourage the partner to be involved. I also see clients who are experiencing distress related to affairs, sexual compulsivity, sexual trauma, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Clients who identify as LGBTQ+ are welcome.

It’s not unusual to feel anxious or overwhelmed with the idea of not being where you want in life. You may be considering returning to school, or if you should leave a relationship or job. Maybe you just feel out of place in life. Making changes is not easy and can be intimidating, but luckily you do not have to do it by yourself. I believe that people have the ability to make changes they want with the right support systems in place. I can work with you to help make positive changes by increasing your support systems, self-esteem, and communication skills to help you face life changes or addiction, family and relationship issues.

Living a “life worth living” can seem like a path only others get to travel, while our journey feels unfair, exceedingly difficult, or at times impossible. At times we discover that our struggles are the result of the choices we made, or the choices others have made that affect us. At other times, we unknowingly hold onto faulty beliefs about ourselves or others, living as if they are true or accurate. To cope, we develop strategies to make the journey seem more doable. They can indeed be helpful and carry us toward our goals, or be the very obstacle that prevents us from achieving our potential.

Life can be painful. Therapy doesn't have to be. Many people see therapy as onesided, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience each other as real people. I can promise you I am as real as it gets! I want to help you find solutions and life changes you are looking for while enjoying the process as much as possible. Calling a therapist can be intimidating but I can relate. I've had my struggles with difficult times too, but I think that helps me help you. Life is just painful sometimes but it can get better! Strong people ask for help!
