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 believe that the ability to consciously engage in sexual and reproductive experiences is a fundamental part of women’s empowerment and wellbeing. 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 the importance of providing a personalized treatment approach and work with my clients to build awareness of the unique factors that impact their sexual and reproductive health. I support an embodied approach to therapy and work with my clients to build a deeper connection with the emotions, sensations, and perceptions that are present in their bodies. I am passionate about working with my clients to build awareness of ways that their sexual and reproductive health are a part of their overall physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.

More Info About My Practice

Embodied Empowerment is a therapy practice that specializes in sexual and reproductive empowerment, treating women’s sexual and reproductive health concerns that occur throughout their lifespan. This practice is built on the idea that the ability to consciously engage in sexual and reproductive experiences is a fundamental part of women’s empowerment and wellbeing. Embodied Empowerment is devoted to helping you build the confidence to authentically express your sexuality, feel comfortable in your own body, and make embodied choices about your sexual and reproductive health.

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

Reproductive Health: I help my clients build confidence and clarity in their reproductive choices while navigating the complex emotions that have accompanied their reproductive experiences. I enjoy working with women who want to address concerns related to abortion, infertility, involuntary childlessness, living childfree by choice, navigating parenthood indecision, and pathways to building a family.

Sexual Health: I work with my clients to increase their sexual satisfaction and create authentic, fulfilling sexual experiences. I help my clients address concerns related to sexual shame, sexual self-confidence, sexual dissatisfaction or dysfunction, and pelvic pain.

Body Dissatisfaction: My therapeutic approach creates space for my clients to reconnect with their bodies and build confidence in their appearance. I work collaboratively with my clients to address concerns related to body image concerns, building body confidence, and taking care of their bodies.

Self-Empowerment: I empower my clients to create lasting change and transformation by breaking cycles that leave them feeling stuck and unfulfilled. We will work together to address concerns relating to perfectionism, shame, stress or burnout, decision making, and adjusting to change or transitions.
