My focus and passion is sexual health and I work with people of all ages. Sexuality is an important source of identity, connection and pleasure, but I also recognize the ways in which shame, trauma, and limited/unhelpful learning about sex contributes to a lot of common sexual problems and conflict in relationships. I support clients with a variety of goals including improving your sex life, dealing with sexual pain, working through sexual “dysfunctions,” exploring sexual preferences, and dealing with out-of-control sexual behavior. I also work with parents, teens and families on issues related to sexuality.

I believe that we are all made for relationship with one another. Relationships are where we learn about love, comfort, hope, courage, joy, and empathy. They are also where we unfortunately learn about betrayal, fear, rejection, abandonment, abuse, and pain. These experiences and connections with others shape us into who we are. They are also the place where real change and healing can happen. I hope to come alongside you as an empathetic and trustworthy listener to help you make sense of unhealthy patterns that have kept you stuck and to provide real hope, growth, and change in the context of healthy relationship.

Outwardly you look like you have it all together; but on the inside, you are riddled with self-doubt, fear or overwhelming sadness. This companion of stress/anxiety/sadness has been affecting many parts of life. You wonder, "Is there a light at the end of the tunnel?" Nothing you have done to calm your mind is working and you’re barely holding it together. You can’t continue the way you are now. You want to find a way out of the anxiety and depression that steals your joy and interferes with your ability to be the best version of yourself.

"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself, just as I am, then I can change." Carl Rogers. I believe change happens when we fully accept all of who we are , our strengths as well as our vulnerabilities. Getting to that place of self-acceptance is the work of therapy. I approach therapy believing in the basic goodness of people. Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that holds us back from who we can be. Releasing emotional pain from past trauma, limiting beliefs about ourselves and others, and unrelenting critical thoughts allows our innate goodness and wisdom to emerge.

Most conflict involves relationship: a relationship with ourselves, our parents, our children, our lovers, our bosses, our co-workers. This is the one area where education fails us. We inhabit an adult body with a child's knowledge of how to interact with the world and ourselves and that is where a therapist's knowledge can be beneficial. "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it" (Rumi). I can help a client find and diminish those barriers.
