I specialize in working with men, women, and couples on various sexual issues, and also have a specialization in working with borderline personality disorder. Many of my clients suffer from anxiety, depression and trauma to some extent, so the focus is on how psychological issues lead to or underlie various unwanted behaviors, impulsivity, arguing, addiction, and/or intimacy, among other things.
I am trained in dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), a specialized form of treatment that teaches mindfulness and various other 'skills' in conjunction with very tangible, goal-oriented therapy.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I work with individuals and couples grappling with intimacy issues, communication struggles, affairs, and sexually compulsive behaviors. I also work with sexual dysfunction, for both men and women.
People are often unsure how talking about sex can improve sexual functioning, and I can say that sexual problems are often rooted in anxiety, as well as in repressed emotion, or things that we're avoiding. Gaining insight into these issues can be super helpful. Of course, insight alone is not a cure - there will be homework! But it's oftentimes fun and enjoyable homework...
My Role as a Therapist
My role is to assess the areas of life that are causing you the most amount of distress, to assess your own strengths for coping with those areas, to point them out to you, and to brainstorm on how to improve. I spend a lot of time working with, reading about and learning about various psychological issues, so my role is also sometimes as an educator, to let you know the ways our bodies and brains deal with anxiety, depression, anger, sex, etc. Finally, my role is to create a safe space to talk about all of these things.
