My Approach to Helping

As a clinician I strive to provide a therapeutic space where women can have safe, informed, and authentic conversations about issues related to their sexual and reproductive health. I am passionate about helping women build trust in their bodies and understand the complex factors that have influenced their sexual or reproductive experiences.

I understand that healing looks different to each person coming into my office. I work hard to create a space where you can deepen your understanding of your own experiences and feel empowered to work towards your therapeutic goals. My hope is that you leave my office with a greater understanding of who you are and feel more comfortable engaging in your sexual and reproductive experiences.

More Info About My Practice

Embodied Empowerment Counseling Services specializes in providing support to women, including non-binary and trans women, who are seeking to address concerns related to their sexual and reproductive experiences. As a clinician I provide culturally affirming and inclusive therapy that supports all bodies, relationships, and identities. I am sensitive to the complexities that impact sexual and reproductive experiences of the LGBTQIA+ community, single parents by choice, and those who are a part of expansive family structures or relationships.

My practice may be a good fit for you if you notice that you are
-Considering decisions about if, or how, you want to become a parent
-Coping with difficult feelings related to abortion, infertility, or surrogacy
-Experiencing sexual difficulties that are impacting your relationship or ability to conceive
-Noticing that your sexual experiences have been impacted by physical discomfort or decreased desire
-Wanting to understand how to more authentically express or participate in your sexuality
-Finding your relationships, sexuality, or self-confidence are impacted by the way you feel about your body

The relationship between myself and my clients is one of the most important parts of the therapeutic process. If you’re curious about whether or not this practice is a good fit for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you might have.
