You were not born inherently flawed, and you were not born to suffer, but maybe somehow, somewhere along the way, your brain received this information and it has shaped the way you live your life. Feelings of isolation, guilt, shame, anger, and sadness have begun to feel inescapable, making it difficult to ask for/ accept help from others. You may feel trapped in a cycle of harmful and problematic behaviors , thoughts, relationships- you know something isn’t working, but can’t seem to figure out why or where to begin to start feeling better . Give yourself credit- you’ve already taken a big step forward, which brought you here.

I am excited to accept clients of all ages with competency in areas including anxiety, depression, LGBTQ + issues, and trauma.
Hello and welcome, I’m glad you’re here. As individuals, we weave our own beautiful and unique tapestries of life. However, every once in a great while, we hit a snag and become unsure of the texture, color, and direction of which to continue to weave. As a therapist, I believe that each one of us has the capability and capacity to continue weaving, you might just need help with a few knots along the way. That’s where I come in.

The climate of our country has caused an increased number of people feeling overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, anxious and feelings of uncertainty. Battling those feelings can make you feel exhausted, irritable, and even want to give up. Instead of giving in to the very thing that is weighing you down, choose to focus on yourself and reestablish happiness.

I specialize in facilitating individuals who identify as LGBTQIA + as well as addiction treatment.
Have you always known you were different? Like, so different most people just... don't get it? It may feel like there is just no corner of the planet where you can be yourself. You have spent your whole life trying to be what everyone else wanted you to be. When you think about who you are, you can't really put a finger on what that is exactly. Maybe you believe that if you just play along with everyone else you will be safe, successful, and better off. Maybe you have reached a point where you realize that, that is no longer working for you. I am here to listen and give a voice to who you are and would like to be.

I'm a sex therapist and psychotherapist, specializing in trauma, polyamory, consensual non monogamy and open relationships, with a particular focus on the LGBTQ + community.
I am currently taking new telehealth clients for sex therapy, couples therapy and trauma therapy. My ideal client wants to heal. With all the trauma from the past few years, self-work has never been more necessary and normalized. Coming out of a global pandemic, with relationships and sex lives suffering, we all need to be intentional about rebuilding emotional, mental and sexual health. Whether you’re trying to heal from trauma, improve communication and intimacy in your relationship(s), explore polyamory or consensual non monogamy, or explore sexual and/or gender identity, I believe I can help you to achieve your personal goals.

What type of Cincinnati 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Cincinnati?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
