Therapy is a place for you to name areas of pain, a place to feel without judgment, and a place to reclaim what is yours. Shame is the source of so much of this pain and judgment, convincing you that you are broken. Shame is often so intertwined with sexuality because of the societal silence around the topic. Perhaps sex is painful, perhaps you are more aware of others desires than your own, perhaps you feel empty from running on fumes and enjoyment is the last thing on your mind. Whatever the reason, engaging your sexual health can help overall wellness, and ultimately be the way back into relationship with yourself!

My focus is in working with clients who live in some way that is outside of a societal expectation or norm. My style is rooted in the idea of collective liberation, and my clients are queer folx, trans folx, changemakers and activists, those living with chronic illness, survivors of relational and systemic trauma; those with body types, cultural identities, family or relationship structures that differ from those represented frequently or positively in mainstream media.

My therapeutic philosophy is that it's not what is wrong with you but what happened to you. I believe that symptoms like anxiety and depression are not signs of weakness but messages to our mind and body telling us that something is not right and needs to be addressed. Maladaptive ways of coping may have once served us by dulling stress or pain but are not working any more, and so we have to learn new, healthier, more adaptive coping skills. I believe both the body and mind work together and are ultimately designed to survive, heal and thrive. Sometimes we just need understanding, validation and support to navigate the process.

I practice sex therapy, individual therapy, and couples therapy in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I enjoy helping clients ages 16-60 with issues in individual mental health, sex and sexuality, relationships, and family dynamics. Using a radically body- and sex-positive approach, I help people with sexual concerns including sexual pain, desire and arousal issues, out of control sexual behavior, difficulty with orgasm, recovering healthy sexuality after trauma, polyamory, swinging, kink, gender and orientation discovery, and concerns over porn usage. Cultural humility and racial justice are very important to me. Health at Every Size aligned.

It will not come as a surprise to anyone when I say, we all encounter life challenges that can leave us uncertain, preoccupied, or feeling like we are treading water. In moments like these, it can be helpful to meet one on one with a trained psychological professional.  These one on one sessions can offer us the space to be heard, discuss our experiences openly, and offer chances for us to see our challenges from more than one point of view. Often when we are able to see challenges from more than one point of view, we can learn from them in ways that can help us grow.

In my 10+ years of clinical practice I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families struggling with a variety of mental health illnesses. I have done this work both individually and in couples and family therapy sessions. I have given special focus to adolescents dealing with anxiety, depression, self-harming, self-esteem, and self-identity issues. I am also currently increasing my specialized focus on adoption issues and anxiety treatments. I enjoy working with the 10-25 year old age group but in my years of private practice have worked with children as young as 5 and adults as young as 65.

My goal in therapy is to offer a space for clients to feel understood and accepted and I believe the healing comes through connection. Building a collaborative, safe, and trusting therapeutic relationship is central to my approach as I help clients find meaning and purpose in their lives and develop healthier relationships with others and themselves. I recognize that each of us gets lots of messages in this world and many of them are negative. I work to help people identify and overcome these negative messages by embracing their strengths to live a satisfying life.

I believe that creating art serves as communication between our inner and outer worlds. It is a natural form of expression that can bring about healing and recovery. I am deeply committed to helping people find meaning and purpose in their lives. Through the creative process, I help clients discover their strengths and overcome feelings of emptiness and hopelessness. As the founder of Milwaukee Art Therapy Collective, I have worked to create an art studio that sparks creativity and to provide a nurturing therapeutic space for hope and healing.

A large part of my practice is inclusive of conducting (neuro)psychological evaluations. Typical presenting problems include concerns about attention/ADHD, learning, trauma/PTSD, depression, anxiety, memory, disruptive behavior, hyperactivity, social interactions/Autism, dementia, neurobehavioral disorders, traumatic brain injury, and cognitive impairments among others. Evaluations assist with diagnosing, offering treatment recommendations, noting progress and current level of functioning, assisting with getting school-related help, recommendations for guardianship, etc. I also offer therapeutic services. I believe that developing a deeper understanding of oneself is important so individuals can become free to embrace their inner strengths, solidify their belief systems, and reach their greatest potential.

Do you find yourself anxious and worried no matter what you do? Challenges connecting in relationships? Getting stuck in negative thoughts about yourself? Feeling like your grief and pain might consume you? You may be at your limit with how anxiety, relationships, self esteem or grief are negatively impacting your life and maybe you feel powerless to change it. You might not remember a time when things felt better. One thing is for sure: you are ready for some relief. You are ready to not feel anxious all the time, to have connected relationships, feel positive about yourself and honor your grief in healthy ways.

Attachment-based Therapists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
