People come to me feeling disconnected from themselves and what matters most to them in life. For over a decade, I have helped people recover from upsetting experiences and toxic relationships that have shaken them to their core. Many of those I help also work in creative fields or are entrepreneurs, the work stresses of which can collide with traumatic pasts and lead to feeling unsettled and unsure of how to relate to people both personally and professionally.

Anxiety throws you into the future, and it is never a future you actually want, yet you spend so much time worrying, catastrophizing, and mentally preparing for atrocities that are not likely to occur. The same goes for depression, shame and guilt, you are pulled back in time by old negative beliefs that weren’t yours to begin with. Hyper vigilance, flashbacks, nightmares, dissociation, these too may keep you in the past. Kurt Vonnegut’s famous science fiction novel, “Slaughter House-five,” describes a soldier in the war zone becoming “unstuck in time.” This is what trauma feels like for many people.

I provide psychotherapy within the context of a therapeutic working alliance; by first building trust and safety in the therapeutic relationship, one can then work towards tackling larger life goals. I work from a core belief that our minds and bodies are deeply connected. Treating the whole person, including the impact of stress on their physical body, is an important component to treating trauma, grief, anxiety, depression, and more.

We often forget that our first experience of the world is a shared one; that by nature we are relational beings. Which is why therapy can be so powerful. My job is to help you move away from the things that no longer work (perhaps never did), and toward a preferred way of being. Our process together is one of discovery & transformation, and honors both what you are and what you are becoming. You and I will collaborate to create an environment that is safe and supportive (I don't do that alone -- only you know what is safe). Through compassion & curiosity, our therapy will find new narratives and make meaning of old ones.

In sex therapy, I help clients grappling with issues around functioning, sexual shame, sexual trauma, impulsive behaviors, sex and porn "addictions," low and hyper-arousal issues - all from a sex-positive, kink/poly/bdsm-friendly stance. I also help couples navigate challenges in their intimate relationships. With chronic pain and discomfort, I help people change their relationship to the symptoms, which leads to drastic reduction and often elimination of symptoms.

I've discovered that seeking therapy is a brave shift towards healing and self-awareness. No one is immune to the trials and tribulations of life. You have the power within you for change and growth...trust yourself. It's important to build trust and rapport between client (you) and therapist (me). I would like to know why and/or how you've come to therapy and what your expectations are (after all, this is your time, at your expense). I'm interested in your life story. I've found honesty and vulnerability lay the foundation to building a new freedom.
