Awaken, Embody, Integrate, and Transform . . . Where are you on your journey of authentic sexual expression? As a sex therapist and clinical sexologist, I offer guidance in moving through discomfort, anxiety, insecurity, and uncertainty so my clients are able to find clarity and confidence. I support clients in deepening the capacity for presence, emotional intimacy, and pleasure through mindfulness, self-compassion, and self-acceptance. I especially value helping women learn to cultivate sexual desire and couples to enhance their sexual experiences. I offer referrals for compulsive porn use, as this is beyond my scope of practice.

For over 15 years, I have worked as a licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, assisting children, adolescents, couples and families, in a variety of settings.
Everything changes, but the feeling of change. It can be hard to find the way on your own. Everyone can use a little extra support now and then. Especially if you have recently gone through a significant change in your life or you are anticipating one. By successfully working through these changes, you will not only find your way, but you will gain coping skills for future change.

I have experience in the mental health and substance use fields working with individuals, couples and families in all levels of care.
Throughout our lives we are strengthened, not defined, by our experiences. Some experiences are welcomed and enjoyed and others are challenging and even devastating at times. The work for all of us in this life is to learn how to cope with and grow from our experiences while empowering ourselves and others to create more positive ones. We can do this by staying mindful and connected to the strength and stability within us. I believe we have an innate need and ability to connect and feel a sense of unconditional acceptance and this is what therapy can offer.

I see children, adults, couples and families.
I find that a client is best served when they are listened to, validated, but also challenged to make positive change. That is why I take a cognitive behavioral approach to the counseling I do. Whether the client is a child or adult we all have the ability to learn from the past and make different choices for the future.

What type of Portsmouth mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Portsmouth?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
