"I work with issues related to Sex & Intimacy, Addictions, Trauma, Trust, and Communication. I am LGBTQIA+ friendly, I believe that change, growth, and fulfilling relationships are possible for everyone. We all have the human need for connection & intimacy, but sometimes as the result of painful experiences we build walls to keep others at a distance. I'm passionate about helping people tackle these walls and find new ways of relating, achieving a healthy balance of closeness, connection and personal anatomy."

"Being a woman in America in 2020 is not easy. A mentor of mine once said that she did not envy my experience as a woman today. She grew up in a different time, a time when she was expected to be a good mother for her children and a responsible homemaker for her husband. Today, beyond these roles, there is a subtle, quiet undercurrent of expectations including, but by no means limited to, being a “good” wife, sister, friend, and neighbor (what does “good” mean anyway?), a career woman, an impromptu party host with a meticulous home, and a selfless volunteer in the community, all while maintaining a size 2 figure."
