About

I specialize in the confidential treatment of personal, relational and sexual issues affecting adult individuals and couples. I offer a warm and individualized approach to treatment and value my collaboration with other health professionals to ensure holistic & inclusive patient care. My goal is to help clients grow through gaining intrapersonal insight to promote sustained change and healthier relationship patters. I commonly treat issues such as anxiety, relationship dissatisfaction, desire discrepancy, infidelity, sexual compulsivity, ED and PE.
I have 29 years of clinical experience. I am an AASECT-Certified Sex Therapist, a credential that ensures the public I am uniquely qualified to treat a broad variety of sexual & relational issues. AASECT certification protects patients by distinguishing those therapists who have achieved rigorous standards and demonstrate depth in clinical competence.
Licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in both Kentucky and Michigan; AAMFT Clinical Member; American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors & Therapists - Certified Sex Therapist; Florida Post-Graduate Sex Therapy Training Institute; Cincinnati Psychoanalytic Institute - Advanced Psychotherapy Program (Currently enrolled).
