As a sex therapist, I specialize in treating sexual issues. These often include relationship challenges and sexual problems such as lack of desire/low libido, difficulty with arousal, premature ejaculation and trouble reaching orgasm. Anxiety about sexual performance, lost intimacy, sexual abuse, infidelity, menopause, illness and aging can also interfere with sexual satisfaction. Sex therapy addresses problematic or illegal sexual behaviors, sexual compulsivity, paraphilias and fetishes. Clients benefit from exploring issues surrounding sexual orientation, gender identity, asexuality, polyamory and kink. I am passionate about helping clients overcome the issues that affect their sexuality so that they more fully enjoy life.

Becoming a therapist has been one of the hardest endeavors and greatest joys of my life. But isn’t that how things often go? It is the fullest of human experiences to suffer and grieve and strive and love and celebrate and overcome. As a therapist, it is my goal to provide a safe space for my clients to be seen, to be heard, and to navigate all that life has in store.

Our private practice is unlike most others. I am a pre-licensed clinical fellow at The Briggs Institute,Inc. Therapists at the Institute are graduates of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Lipscomb University, which holds its graduates to a much higher standard of clinical experience than the state requires, one that's far greater than other high quality masters programs in Nashville. Because we practice under the supervision of core Lipscomb faculty, we remain connected to academia. This means our work is informed by state-of-the-art scientific research that most private practice therapists can't easily access.

Do you currently struggle with a painful or even traumatic past? I believe in active acceptance as the most effective path towards change. Through a focus on values, clients learn to accept a difficult past towards a vital life in the present. To their credit, most clients have already tried to "get rid of" difficulties before therapy. They typically make the decision when realizing that their well-worn coping tools don't work and they're overwhelmed. Ideal clients are ready to actively engage in a collaborative process challenging them to let go of control/avoidance strategies towards a committed life in the present.

Life is tragic. No one get's out clean. We use things like alcohol, drugs, sex, control, codependency, work, serial relationships, and many other coping skills to try and make it through our pain. Maybe you feel stuck or lost or unable to take another step and so you numb out or check out or run or hide or fight and attack. Whatever you are doing that isn't working, the truth is there is another way. There is a way to be comfortable in your own skin. There is a way to have stable relationships. There is a way to have hope. While there is breath, there is hope.

Together we will find the right path, and right set of practical tools, to help you overcome obstacles and become your best self. After over a decade-and-a-half working in mental health, I am skilled in the latest, evidence-based therapies available (e.g., Relational Mindfulness and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy). But no single approach works for all people at all times and, remaining flexible, we will create a safe therapeutic environment with the best combination of techniques that works for you. So many different psychotherapies exist today because there is no one approach that works at all times.

I want to help you find your center again. Anxious or depressive thoughts pop up and interrupt the life you are trying to lead. The story you thought was going to play out for your life, somehow just doesn't happen. I want to help you rewrite whatever parts of your narrative aren't working for you. You can find a way toward a better life, but you have to understand how your story impacts the way you show up in your own skin and the way you pursue relationship. If hope feels hard to find, I can help. The life you want can feel more in reach, as you find a better understanding of who you were meant to be.
