My Approach to Helping
I help clients pinpoint various dimensions of the problem and practice creative alternatives.
My specialty is sex therapy. About 70% of my clients seek help understanding their sexual desires, behavior, and development as it relates to their mental health. I provide comprehensive individual & systemic assessment. Many of my clients seek help with persistent low desire or out-of-control sexual behavior ("sexual addiction"). I have specialized knowledge in the healthy diversity of sexual behavior. For example, I frequently treat individual and relational erotic conflicts, arousal and orgasm problems, genital pain, stressors related to sexual orientation, kink / paraphilia, and healing from sexual abuse. I also conduct gender dysphoria assessments. I frequently connect with people experiencing relationship dissatisfaction, sensitivity, and grief. I have worked with survivors of abuse and violence for over ten years.
Together, we look for cognitive, behavioral, and emotional patterns. I offer transparent feedback and referrals.
