My Approach to Helping
I work with issues related to Sex and Intimacy. I am LGBTQIA affirmative and alternative lifestyles (Kink and Poly) friendly. Other areas of speciality include Substance Abuse, Anxiety, Trauma, & Mood disorders. I believe that change, growth, and fulfilling relationships are possible for everyone. I help individuals and couples learn to communicate more effectively, as well as address their underlying needs, attachment injuries and trauma, which can make connection and trust difficult. My style is warm and down-to-earth. If you're looking for a therapist who is non-judgmental and affirming, I'd be a good fit for you.
I have experience with Addiction, Depression & Mood Disorders, Borderline Personality Disorder and Self-Harm (e.g. cutting). I am in the process of gaining additional education and supervision to become an AASECT certified Sex Therapist. Sexuality can carry a lot of stigma, and I provide a safe place to talk about it, reduce anxiety, and overcome shame.
Reaching out for help can be overwhelming, I get that. But I know from experience, it CAN get better. Healing, connection and fulfilling relationships are possible! Call me for a consultation and let's talk about it. You don't have to go through this alone.
