Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression or OCD, or to develop healthy sexuality , you don't have to be alone in this journey.
We are living in unprecedented times. It seems that every day, we learn of some new crisis unfolding. Feeling anxious or depressed is a reasonable response to living in an uncertain world. For many of us, recent years have brought loss and trauma. It may feel like you will never heal. Learning to cope and adapt may feel overwhelming. You want to be your "old self again," but it feels impossible. You may have tried to heal yourself, only to realize you need help. You may hesitate to seek help for fear of being judged. You may feel that you are alone in your struggles, but I want you to know that you are not alone. There is hope.

I am an LGBTQ+ Affirming, sex – positive, kink aware therapist.
I believe in the importance of a person’s story and meeting each person where they are in the present moment, while honoring experiences from the past. There are often events or themes within a person’s childhood that can lead them to experience difficulties later in their lives if left unresolved. These difficulties often appear in the form of unhealthy traits or toxic cycles within romantic relationships or friendships. Other times, there are negative thoughts such as “I should have known better” or “I always do something wrong” that constantly circle in a person’s mind.

Are you or a family member struggling with depression, anxiety, attention/concentration, managing anger, or anything that consumes one's thoughts/feelings on a daily basis? I may be able to help with that! I will not present to be an expert in your life, but I do understand how unwanted feelings/thoughts can be so consuming that it interferes with daily activities. Early in my experience, I learned that it is important to utilize an integrative approach and draw from various therapeutic methodologies including emotion-focused therapy, solution-focused therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy.

I also enjoy working with couples on relationship issues, including sex .
We do the best we can with the tools we have. But maybe you don't have the right tools for the issues in your life. Or maybe you have the tools, but you've forgotten how to use them. That is where therapy comes in. Together, we can find resources, within yourself and in the community, develop a plan to get you where you want to be, and you can begin taking steps towards achieving your personal goals. My job is like a football coach. I work to help you see the potential you don't see in yourself; and give you the tools and encouragement to work on the hurdles you have in life. Cheering you on the whole time!

I address topics such as anxiety about health, sleep, depression, illness/chronic pain, relationships and sex , weight management, trauma, and addiction.
Are you feeling stuck or struggling to make changes in your life but can’t quite figure out how to get there? I offer tools to help people learn to decode their emotions so that they no longer need a therapist guiding them, but rather they can address life's challenges with greater confidence. My treatment focuses on helping people accept the past, and make concrete changes in their lives that lead to a greater sense of peace and satisfaction. My aim is to create a warm, collaborative, and accepting environment where you can feel comfortable expressing your emotions.

I am sex positive and work with traditional and non-traditional couples on a variety of relationship struggles.
Arguing? Struggling to communicate effectively with your partner? Starting to feel resentment and questioning if you're with the right person? Perhaps you've endured abandonment or trauma and these experiences are making it difficult for you to be open or intimate. A strong connection with a loved one is the best source of resilience and comfort. Strengthening your connection with your loved one(s) is my overarching goal. We will sit together and work through structured and empirically-validated processes of couples counseling to help you open up to each other and build (or, re-build) your bond.

Emotions are an important part of life, and help us to connect with others.

I work with communication, emotional intimacy, shame, self-worth, transitions, trauma, grief and loss, perfectionism, sex , experiences from childhood, anxiety, and depression.
I believe we are wired to seek connection and security. Emotion is the language of connection so I work with individuals and couples to understand how their emotional world shapes their life. You may have learned to withdraw/numb feelings, deny or feel shame about them, or that your emotions are “too much”. Your feelings are valid, important, and resourceful, and designed to shine a light on what you are needing. Whether I am working with individuals or couples, I can support you to organize your emotions, understand their origins and functions, and utilize them to create secure, emotionally intimate, and responsive relationships.

Sex Therapy
Sex therapists in Suffolk offer help with sexual concerns by educating, using talk therapy, offering homework exercises and resources for further exploration to either individuals or couples. Sex therapy helps couples talk about sex with each other. A sex therapist feels comfortable talking about sex and is aware of how anxious you might feel talking about this intimate subject with each other and with a near-stranger. They will help set you at ease and guide you into talking about sex. While sex therapists can help with many problems, low sexual desire and frequency disagreements between partners are two of the most frequent concerns they address.
