My Approach to Helping

I offer an integrated approach to psychotherapy focusing on the unique interests and vitality of each person. I am dedicated to helping individuals discover new solutions and perspectives to difficult life challenges and their true potential. I also enjoy assisting couples develop more effective ways of developing and enriching communication and intimacy. Through a transpersonal lens of focus that explores both traditional talk therapy and experiential exercises. Whether you're looking for short-term guidance during a difficult time or exploring a new direction, I look forward to helping you clarify and manifest important goals and dreams. As a sex therapist it is a specialized area of psychotherapy exploring sexuality. Much like traditional talk therapy, treatment consists of talking to a therapist about difficulties and concerns, with an emphasis on sexuality and gender. Concerns can range from pornography and sexual addiction, sexual identity, sexual relationships, BDSM and kink exploration. My goal as a therapist is to serve as a compassionate witness, creating a safe space for clients to explore their whole selves - body, mind, and spirit. Together, we can map the territory of your lived experience and find the road that leads to a place of knowing confidence. Specialist in Holotropic Breathwork, Yoga based trauma therapy and other experiential guided imagery. I work on intgrating talk therapy with experiential transpersonal therapy.

More Info About My Practice

At Healing Souls, we understand that throughout life we face many new challenges. How you approach and respond to life's uncertainties will have a direct outcome on your job, family, friends, and your own identity. We look at life as an opportunity to learn and teach one other. If you are currently facing a new challenge, you may benefit from counseling services. We can assist you in discovering a new awareness of your identity and strengthen your ability to turn the challenges you face into opportunities for growth. Healing Souls will focus on the things that you can presently control and change to further your long-term growth. You can expect the counsel you receive to be clear, honest, and compassionate. During our time together, you will learn to become more intentional, focused, and equipped in living out life. Through a mindful direction choices can be made to further our journey. We look forward to joining alongside you in your opportunities for growth. Allow us to share with you why many of our clients choose to pay for their counseling apart from insurance companies. To have therapy services covered under insurance, you must have a mental health diagnosis. Private paying clients often desire to have their permanent health record void of their mental health diagnosis, and prevent insurance companies from having legal access to their diagnosis, treatment plan and case notes containing a great deal of personal information.

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

Sex therapy is simply a specialized area of psychotherapy that deals directly with sexuality. Much like traditional talk therapy, treatment consists of talking to a therapist about difficulties and concerns, but with an emphasis on sexuality.

As a specialist working to help support and understand pornography addiction. It is imprinted and I am able to help reclaim back your life.

Since sexual issues most often arise in the context of relationships, our therapists are skilled marital and relationship experts who have undergone additional training to treat sexual concerns. Depending on the concern, treatment often includes practical, at-home behavioral exercises, which we like to call home-play (instead of homework!).

Sessions are often educational and include exercises, techniques, and tools you can begin using after the first meeting. We do not have any sexual contact with our clients, and sessions do not include nudity or sexual behavior.

Is your relationship lacking intimacy? Recent life changes? Has sex become a chore? Does sex scare you? We can help.
Sex issues are much more common than you might think, and there is hope. Our therapists are knowledgeable and sensitive to a variety of concerns. Listed below are some of the common problems we treat.
Hypoactive desire, Erectile Disfunction, Porn Addiction, Kink play, loss of sex drive, gender identification, polyamory, swinging, bisexuality. Coaching healthy sexual communication with regards to sexuality and spirituality.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Psychotherapy, also called "talk therapy" or counseling, is the process of self-awareness and personal growth that occurs through the therapeutic relationship. Through this relationship we can help you to resolve emotional "blocks", to gain insight into your emotions, to change troubling behaviors, to resolve problems, and to develop skills that allow you to feel better, make healthy life choices, and experience more fulfilling relationships. Healing Souls look at sessions in different formats, such as individual, couple, family and group.
