Evening/weekend appointments. Finding yourself in deep distress or feeling dissatisfied with life may signal you are ready for change. Therapy can help you understand the roots of distress and help you make desired changes. My therapeutic approach focuses on deepening your understanding of and compassion for yourself by exploring aspects of your identity, examining your values and beliefs, reflecting on relationships that have shaped you, and identifying patterns that may no longer serve you. From this place of understanding and compassion, those sources of distress can shift, creating profound changes in the areas of life most important to you.

My primary focus is on helping couples and individuals with sexual issues. In working with couples, I find dissatisfaction with partnered sex is often linked to deeper relationship difficulties and the two can be intertwined. In other instances, the therapeutic focus is primarily on enhancing technique and increasing desire rather than improving the relationship. I also work individually with women to eliminate barriers to sexual wellness and increase acceptance. I enjoy working with gay, lesbian, and heterosexual clients and have respect for sexual fluidity and variance in erotic interest.
