I provide individual psychotherapy to adults struggling with anxiety, depression, transitions, identity, loss, self-esteem, and relationships. I believe understanding, instead of hiding from fear and shame, provides self-acceptance and consequently relief. The ultimate goal is for you to feel empowered and free to create the life you want. My work is anti-racist, sex -positive, body-positive, poly/CNM affirming, gender affirming, feminist, and culturally responsive.

I believe that the systems we navigate directly impact our mental health and well-being, and that through recognition and critical consciousness of these influences, we can radically free ourselves. I began working in counseling as a sex and relationship peer counselor during my undergrad. From there, I worked as a crisis hotline worker, in Shanghai, and with the Trevor Project. I believe growing up biracial and queer positioned me well to see how uniquely multifaceted each person is. In my therapy sessions, we will nurture a nonjudgmental and explorative space that allows us to grow together.

I’m here to make your sense of sexuality more in depth and encourage you to explore, with yourself and others, what this means for you.
My focus is adults who are struggling with a sexual issue. I want to help people of all kinds; people of all genders, people of all races, people of all sexual orientations (heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual and asexual), people in all kinds of relationships (polyamorous, monogamous) and people with varied ability-levels. I consider myself to be honest, knowledgeable, wise and confident. Additionally, I identify as a deaf Black woman. It should be noted that I lost my hearing as an adult and I wear an implant, thus my communication skills are excellent, and I can hear quite well.

I have had a lifelong passion for sexual health and believe it can be an integral part of our well-being. I hope to help people surmount any obstacles to engaging in the sex they want to have, whether that be due to anxiety or depression, body image or self-esteem issues, challenges with relationships or desire, questions of identity, or sexual difficulties after trauma or STI diagnosis. My goal is to help clients overcome the taboo of talking about sex and sexuality , to free themselves from the sexual shame and stigma that is inherent in our society, and to aid people in finding pleasure in themselves, their bodies, and each other.

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.
