Psychologist, PhD, LP

I have particular expertise addressing LGBT topics, men's issues, topics of identity and oppression, as well as supporting clients with relationship and interpersonal style concerns.
My PhD training as a counseling psychologist affords me flexibility to support multiple life concerns, and at the root of my work is the belief that relationships are capable of healing. I build strong alliances with those whom I serve in order to best meet client directed goals and foster sustained change. I adhere to evidence-based practices in psychology, and research evidence strongly supports the importance of building a strong therapeutic alliance. Everyone has a unique lens through which they see the world and I strive to see the world as my clients do to provide the best care.

Beginning where you are, I can help you address: desire discrepancies, orgasm concerns, painful sex, ED/premature ejaculation/delayed ejaculation, problematic sexual behavior, LGBTQ issues (orientation/concerns, transitioning MTF/FTM), intimacy concerns, infidelity, sexuality in a conservative culture, trauma, resolving conflicts between spirituality & sexuality, polyamory, "sexless" marriages, pornography concerns, etc.
We all have a sexual story. Some aspects of our story may continue to cause pain, cause embarrassment, induce shame or guilt, keep us from fulfilling our sexual potential, block us from feeling whole or cause ongoing problems in our most intimate relationships. As a trained sex therapist, I have experience to help you address challenging aspects of sexuality integrating all aspects of sexuality including the physical, the emotional, the mental and spiritual aspects.

Every person is unique and valuable, and each offers the world something important. Sometimes the busyness of life, both internal and external, clouds our vision and makes remembering this difficult. As we try to see our way forward we often develop patterns of thinking and behaving that prevent us from fully showing up in our lives. My work is to assist you in challenging your current paradigm, to support you in identifying your true goals and desires, and to affirm you in your process of discovery. I approach mental health work from a person-centered, strength-based, feminist, and multi-cultural perspective. I am LGBTQ + affirming.

Faith transitions/journeys, religious trauma, sex therapy, and sexuality. I can (and do) talk about these topics all day. Any one of these issues can seem overwhelming and impossible to deal with. As a therapist who has dealt with these issues myself, I bring both professional and personal experience to help you move forward. I know every person's story and life is unique and I won't project my experiences on you. However, you won't have to explain the "Mormon lingo" or worry that I won't understand the unique issues queer individuals face in a heteronormative world.

I have a heartfelt connection to helping people heal from trauma and am passionate about working with the unique set of challenges facing the LGBTQIA + population.
My work with clients begins at the heart using a strength-based, person-centered approach. Navigating life's uncertainties and learning how to grow through difficult times can be challenging. Past events in our lives are part of our story, but they are not the entire story and they do not define our whole life. I embrace people and their stories with an open heart and innate sensitivity. Creating a safe and nonjudgmental environment to explore relationship and life patterns that are no longer serving you is of utmost importance to me. Therapy is a journey that we can take together, navigating the challenges in a collaborative way.
