Are you having relationship problems or sexual difficulties? I specialize in working with individuals and couples seeking sex therapy and couples counseling to improve intimacy and communication and to deal with desire discrepancy, and conflict. I work with women's sexual health issues: vaginismus, sexual trauma, past abuse, pelvic pain, low desire. There is help, don't suffer! Call me. I offer a client centered approach and trauma informed care to help you as the unique individual or couple that you are. I am honored to work with you. Together we can also address anxiety, grief and loss, depression, PTSD and more! (EMDR trained)
I offer sex positive, LGBTQ affirming, Kink and Poly/CNM informed therapy. Sexuality is both a social justice and a quality of life issue. Are you suffering from trying to "fit in a box" society or "others" dictate? Let's work on this so you can break free to be who you are! Your sexuality and joy do not have an expiration date! It's never too late to heal!
Therapy is a gift you give yourself! Do you want to live the wild, juicy, joyful life you were born to live? What's holding you back? Are you ready to be free? ...to grow into your full potential? I am a AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. I also teach a graduate level Human Sexuality class to Social Work students at WSU. Contact me today for an appointment.
