About

Arriving at the moment when you have finally decided you deserve to feel better is vulnerable. I want to meet you there, in that vulnerability. I have experience working with individuals or couples who are struggling with shame and trauma responses showing up in their romantic relationships or sexual experiences. I help you catch your own patterns that left you feeling stuck and together we identify the origins of these wounds to move you to a place of having options. By then helping match these options to core values, you are able to make decisions that feel empowering and authentic.
I utilize Gestalt, Attachment, and Parts theories with a trauma focused perspective to identify attachment styles and defense mechanisms showing up individually or within couples. I continue to help clients experiencing ED, arousal differences, sexual compulsivity, and sexual phobias. I'm EMDR trained and in progress towards Sex Therapy AASECT certification.
I invite you to give yourself the chance to look in the mirror differently and start a journey towards that moment of "finally." I have openings virtual and in person, please call for a complementary phone consultation.
