Relationships are a complicated endeavor. Whether you feel alone, the supports you have are not satisfactory, or you feel to blame, I am here to help. Mental health is strongly influenced by one's ability to get their needs met in relationships. Psychotherapy is a process whereby we can look at your needs, including the thoughts and feelings you have when you are stuck. Ultimately, by identifying and fleshing out your reactions, we gain a deeper understanding of you, helping you to find freedom of choice and fulfillment.

Sexuality and relationships are complex, and sex therapy is not just about sex. Great sex is more about your relationship with yourself and others than it is about technique. In sex therapy, we identify and work through the emotional issues that contribute to sexual problems by using cognitive therapy to change problematic thoughts and attitudes and incorporate behavioral techniques to change physical symptoms and behavior. I use a sexual health model and work with individuals and couples of any sexual orientation & lifestyle. Interventions include psychoeducation about sex, mindfulness exercises, and repairing relationship issues.
