About

The point of therapy is to talk about your feelings. Is it really that simple? Well… yes and no. Emotion plays an important role in how the nervous system (brain, nerves, and spinal cord) works. Unfortunately, we often learn to push away or ignore our emotions, which prevents the nervous system from self-regulating. On a neurological level, processing emotion helps us to adapt to stress and heal from trauma. That’s why bottling up our emotions is tied to depression, anxiety, and behavioral problems. So…the point of therapy is to talk about your feelings.
I’m trained in neuroscience, but I will talk to you as a human being. I work with individuals and couples, and I specialize in human sexuality. Every day, I talk with people about things they've never discussed with another person. When people are brave enough to talk about the things they keep inside, it can be a life-changing experience.
I'm not a "forever" therapist. Most of the work in therapy is done in the first 16 weeks, so I'm ready to get going if you are. Starting therapy can be hard, especially for those you have had bad experiences with therapy in the past. It's okay if you're uncertain! Please reach out if you would like more information about me or my practice.
