Do you struggle to feel arousal or pleasure during sex ? Have you lost the sexual spark and excitement in your relationship? Do you struggle with desires, thoughts, and behaviors that you feel as though you can’t share with others for fear of shame, stigma, ignorance, or violence? Have you struggled to understand yourself as a sexual being due to stigmatizing beliefs and messages? Navigating the nuances of relationships, sex , sexual health, sexual identity, and gender identity can be difficult and exhausting on its own. Through open-minded, compassionate, and culturally competent care, I am committed to help you meet your goals.

I provide individual sessions, family sessions, couples sessions, sex therapy , group therapy, Christian therapy, and sports therapy.
My approach to therapy is very client focused. I am a systemic therapist and will try and look at the whole picture of your life to help figure out how to help. Working with couples to save, restore, or provide maintenance is my passion. There’s nothing in the world quite like trauma and the way it impacts us as individuals on many different levels. I can help you deal with and navigate these painful memories and intrusive thoughts to live a healthier life. If you are a parent struggling with a child or family problems, I believe I can connect with and help teach both parent and child to help you be a more successful family unit.

I choose to practice sex therapy because sexuality and gender are central to our lives, yet often difficult to discuss.
Sexuality & gender are woven into every aspect of our lives. Whether it is going through puberty, questioning gender or sexual orientation, figuring out dating, relating to a partner, exploring desire or alternative relationship models, or adapting to the changes of aging, sex therapy can help people navigate these challenges and build skills for improved health, pleasure, and connection. Sex therapy is very similar to other forms of mental health counseling, often focused on talking through your concerns, thoughts, and emotions. I see individuals, couples, constellations, and family groups.

I also enjoy exploring sexuality , gender, and identity and specialize in working with bisexual, pansexual, sexually-fluid, bi-curious, and label-free multisexual adults.
Wanting to be loved and accepted doesn’t make you needy, or extra, or selfish, or weak. It makes you human. In our work together my focus is building a relationship where you feel comfortable exploring what you think and feel, want and need. My style as a therapist is warm, relaxed, and conversational. I use playfulness, curiosity, creativity, and laughter to support the therapy process and I prioritize taking time to get to know you and what's important to you.

My overall approach is collaborative and client-centered, with a commitment to anti-oppression in every facet of my work. I believe, with warm, respectful, authentic support, every person has the ability to identify inner resources and acquire skills that will empower them to find healing and fulfilling relationships to self and others. My style is compassionate and appropriately direct. While I find exploration of the past useful, I prefer to use the 'here-and-now' to realize and effect change.

It is a gift to witness and collaborate as my clients experiment, test-run, practice, and play. My style is warm and I occasionally attempt humor. It takes bravery to enter into conversation about change, much less try on new behaviors. Common topics I work with include: cultivating satisfying relationships, life transitions, anti-oppression, stress, anger, grief, sexual and gender identity, polyamory, wealth and identity, shame, and integrity. I also counsel and consult on recovery from experiences of undue influence, coercion and exploitation, such as those common with con-artists and groups with cult-like features.

I work with clients who are ready for transformative work. My focus is to guide each client/s towards building a sense of competency, resourcefulness and helping them recognize that they hold the key to their own healing. I will explore current behaviors and life situations with clients and help them figure out which ones are inhibiting progress, which ones are serving them, and which are ready to be evolved into something else. I also like to look at the past, and family of origin to find what the patterns are that are ready to be broken and how to move forward in an empowered way. I help clients bring to life their next self.

I am genuinely interested in guiding my clients to cultivate a greater degree of resilience to life's inevitable challenges. Among other things, I teach clients to utilize mindfulness practices to calibrate their moods, alter their attitudes, develop greater mental flexibility, and improve overall happiness and well being. This approach works as a positive foundation for most issues that bring clients to my counseling office: counteracting depression or anxiety, accepting grief and loss, parenting, improving significant relationships, addressing post-partum mood disorders, and dealing with the challenges of life in general.

Sex Therapy

Who is sex therapy for?

Sex problems are common in relationships. Many people want a better sex life and want to feel loved and desired by their partner. It is difficult for couples to resolve sexual problems on their own because people often feel ashamed to talk about their sexual desires fearing they are not normal, when in fact a very broad range of preferences and behaviors are normal. A sex therapist can help clarify this and other matters.

Why do people need sex therapy?

Many people do not know how to talk about their erotic needs or their emotional needs, both of which are addressed in sex therapy. Couples often live with sexual difficulties for years before seeking help, and in that time, partners may experience so much disappointment and alienation that they may fear their problems mean they are incompatible. Once people experience disappointment, it is difficult to find resolution without help.

What happens in sex therapy?

People have many misconceptions about what takes place in sex therapy. First, it is a form of talk therapy in which partners discuss their sexual concerns; it does not involve touching or physical exploration of any kind. Sex therapy typically helps couples get comfortable talking to each other about sex so that, in the privacy of their home life, they can openly discuss their sexual desires and make decisions about what they want to do. Couples are typically assigned activities to do at home that build intimacy skills.

What kinds of problems do sex therapists treat?

Very often, partners differ in their degree of sexual desire and struggle over how often to have sex. Or they may have fights about porn use or have difficulty connecting sexually after one partner is unfaithful. Men may have problems with premature ejaculation. Women may find themselves struggling to become aroused or to achieve an orgasm. Sometimes partners feel like they have lost the sense of attraction to their partner. These are all common issues dealt with in sex therapy.
