A lot of my work centers around trauma, gender identity, sexuality, kink, and polyamory.
Sometimes there are parts of ourselves, our desires, or our pasts that are difficult to share with others. This could be because of a lack of acceptance or support in your social world, and could be related to feelings of fear, shame, or disgust. I work with clients to build a relationship in which it is safe enough for clients to bring disowned parts of themselves into compassionate awareness as they develop a sense of wholeness. Throughout this deep internal work, I ask curious questions about environmental factors in order to facilitate liberation from internalized oppression and self-blame.

I understand the complexities + unique challenges of polyamory (and their other forms).
**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** You have the right and potential to be happy and living the life you want to be. Growth comes when we are able to let go of the need to be certain and embrace self-exploration. We may find ourselves suffering silently or blatantly out loud to the stressors that co-exist with us in our day-to-day lives. Holistic therapy allows for that unique experience to gain and practice the ability to look at self, develop skills to be vulnerable, love + let love in. I offer online 1-on-1, as well as, online courses, workshops, and retreats to fit your needs + preferences.

I've also treated thousands of individuals with varied sexual lifestyles including LGBT, Polyamory and BDSM clients.
Everyone has a 'sexual story.' Our culture has a love-hate relationship with sex and sends many mixed messages. I help people explore the legacy of their sexual story and identify the biological, social and psychological barriers to sexual health and satisfaction. I am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine with 30 years of clinical and teaching experience. I developed my own model of talking to clients about sex ("Comfort-Inducing Sexuality Dialogue") that is both comforting and profoundly liberating.

People thrive when they feel a sense of purpose and connection to themselves and others. Most people come to see me when something is missing from their lives, be it purpose, connection, or both. Depression and/or anxiety may be at work. Anger or grief could consume more of their time and focus. Others feel stagnant, confused, expressing a lack of motivation and self-worth. What's common among those I see is that their relationships are impacted. Finding a safe place to explore your current struggles is possible in therapy. To achieve the meaningful changes you desire, seeking professional help is an effective option.

Generally, I use ideas firmly grounded in psychoanalytic theory and technique that are informed by my personal practice of Zen meditation of over ten years.

I believe that healing happens when you are able to share your inner world with another person and feel safe and supported doing so.
