I primarily provide two services: relationship counseling and sex therapy. For partners interested in counseling, I might be a good fit for you if you're interested in strengthening your connection, uncovering how your prior relationships (romantic and otherwise) are influencing your relationship with your partner(s), and learning to identify and express emotions in healthy ways. For individual clients, I work with people hoping to explore their sexual and reproductive life, and gain insight about their values and how they influence their sexuality.

My heart as a counselor is to meet my clients where they are. I believe that we are all on a journey of growth with a desire to improve our emotional health. Every once in a while we get to a place where we feel stuck and sometimes being stuck is painful. That is where a qualified therapist can come into the picture and help you identify goals and process past hurts. I strive to provide a safe place where my clients can work through these issues free of judgement.

I will help facilitate and provide guidance through this client-led process.

I feel every individual is unique; therefore every therapeutic relationship is unique. For therapy to be successful it is essential that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and understood. I respect the difficulty of undertaking the therapeutic journey, and therefore consider myself challenging yet empathetic. I consider myself and active therapist, yet the session is not about me...this is your time. I work with adolescents and adults on an individual basis. I also work with couples, families and groups.

The idea that sustainable happiness is an unattainable goal, is a tricky one. It's that thing we say to ourselves: "if I just ____ then I will be happy ...or if they just ____ then I will be happy." I prefer the idea of moving toward being more content. Isn't content what we feel when we are comfortable, calm, validated and without anxious or depressive thoughts that mess with our days? Often, if not almost always, we have traumas (big or small) and mean/sad/negative inner voices and thoughts that, if we process them, we can get to our contentedness.

We all need to be seen and understood, and it’s my goal to make therapy a space where that happens. I approach therapy from a place of getting that it's important to make sense of your experiences, know & feel that you are valid, & have a way to move forward feeling grounded in your authentic truth. I often work with people who have experienced trauma in relationships, a lack of emotional support in childhood, religious trauma, and marginalization. I can help with if you've been struggling to make changes you want in your life and relationships, have been overwhelmed by emotions, or don't ever know what you're even feeling.

Sex Therapy

Who is sex therapy for?

Sex problems are common in relationships. Many people want a better sex life and want to feel loved and desired by their partner. It is difficult for couples to resolve sexual problems on their own because people often feel ashamed to talk about their sexual desires fearing they are not normal, when in fact a very broad range of preferences and behaviors are normal. A sex therapist can help clarify this and other matters.

Why do people need sex therapy?

Many people do not know how to talk about their erotic needs or their emotional needs, both of which are addressed in sex therapy. Couples often live with sexual difficulties for years before seeking help, and in that time, partners may experience so much disappointment and alienation that they may fear their problems mean they are incompatible. Once people experience disappointment, it is difficult to find resolution without help.

What happens in sex therapy?

People have many misconceptions about what takes place in sex therapy. First, it is a form of talk therapy in which partners discuss their sexual concerns; it does not involve touching or physical exploration of any kind. Sex therapy typically helps couples get comfortable talking to each other about sex so that, in the privacy of their home life, they can openly discuss their sexual desires and make decisions about what they want to do. Couples are typically assigned activities to do at home that build intimacy skills.

What kinds of problems do sex therapists treat?

Very often, partners differ in their degree of sexual desire and struggle over how often to have sex. Or they may have fights about porn use or have difficulty connecting sexually after one partner is unfaithful. Men may have problems with premature ejaculation. Women may find themselves struggling to become aroused or to achieve an orgasm. Sometimes partners feel like they have lost the sense of attraction to their partner. These are all common issues dealt with in sex therapy.
