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.

I believe the goal of therapy is for clients to gain personal insight and understanding of themselves. When individuals understand themselves they are able to change the way they respond to situations and grow into their fullest potential. I use emotion focus techniques to guide clients to gain insight through experience. As a counselor I work as a teacher to help clients practice and experience mindfulness and other techniques for self regulation. We don't have to be victims of our emotions or our past experiences. Through counseling my aim is to walk with clients as they integrate past experiences with personal meaning and purpose

Sex therapy isn’t about positions and toys (though it can be)—rather it’s about self-examination, vulnerability, transparent communication, and ongoing empathy.
I help people understand and communicate about sexuality , emotional needs, and relational skills—specializing in couples work, polyamory & consensual non-monogamy, BDSM & kink, LGBTQ+, and other marginalized communities. Visit my website for helpful resources & education about intimacy communication, alternative relationships, trauma re-empowerment, self-care & toys, and more. My approach to coaching stems from my background and education as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, looking beyond the therapy room and the DSM-5, to examine the whole context of your life.

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.

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.
