My Approach to Helping

My specialty is sex therapy. About 80-90% of my clients seek help understanding their sexual desires, behavior, and development as it relates to their mental health. I provide comprehensive individual & relational assessments. 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 and frequently treat erotic conflicts around sexual abuse; arousal and orgasm problems; genital pain; stressors related to sexual orientation; infidelity; kink; and sexual-spiritual concerns. I also conduct gender dysphoria assessments. I teach Theory and Methods of Sexual Counseling at a local graduate school.

In addition to sex therapy, I practiced general mental health counseling for the last 9+ years in private practice, with additional previous years of experience in a career counseling center; community mental health center; and domestic violence shelter.

I frequently connect with people experiencing relationship dissatisfaction, sensitivity, anxiety, and grief. I offer transparent interpersonal feedback and referrals to additional resources as needed.
