My Approach to Helping

Stuck? There are lots of reasons people get stuck. You're busy! Maybe you've tried to figure things out on your own and keep hitting a wall. Maybe there are family or generational patterns you're working against. Perhaps you and your partner love each other but keep having the same fights over and over again. Maybe there are some intimacy issues that you can't quite fix. I know that unresolved personal or relationship issues create heartache for everyone involved, and being stuck in them is frustrating and overwhelming. It doesn't have to stay that way, though.

Therapy helps! Fortunately, therapy can help tremendously in bringing peace, connection, and satisfaction back to your life. My approach to therapy is pragmatic and provides a) support and understanding, b) honest feedback about patterns in your life and relationships that aren't serving you, and c) concrete tools and strategies for change.

Take the next step: Many people live way too long in painful situations even though help is available, but you don't have to do that. Contact me to schedule a consultation about working together.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I am trained to help you specifically with relationship and sexual concerns. Over the past decade I've worked with lots of folks in therapy, and have done research focusing on sex and pleasure in relationships, and have completed additional training in couples and sex therapy through AASECT, the Sexual Health Alliance, and the Gottman Institute.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

You probably know someone who has been helped by psychotherapy -- many people find it extremely useful in understanding and improving their concerns. In couples therapy I facilitate a dialogue between you and your partner to uncover the roots of the conflict you're having, help you understand each others' feelings, and negotiate changing behavior to better meet each others' needs. Sex therapy is a blend of talking about sexual problems to understand them better, and taking active steps to improve them (but never includes sexual contact in session).
