My Approach to Helping

I am accepting and affirming of ALL relationship models including monogamy, polyamory, open relationships, power exchange dynamics, LGBT+ families and others. My goal is to help your relationship, however you define it, to thrive and grow. I do this by working with individuals, couples, and families to address the issues that may be preventing them from achieving personal, sexual, and relational health. I have over 15 years in working with sexual trauma, troublesome sexual behaviors, nontraditional relationships, and kink-aware practice. Of course I also see patients with traditional mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression. All are welcome!

More Info About My Practice

As a Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, I offer direct, supportive, and solution-focused feedback, tools for growth, and emotional support. As a Sex Therapist, I work to normalize your feelings and your desires, and offer compassionate guidance in order to create richer, joyful, more meaningful relationships with your body, your partner(s), and yourself.
When we meet, you will find a cheerful and affirming ally who will help you to uncover and express your authentic self. I let you set the pace as we explore, individually or with your partner, what is holding you back and identify tangible ways to bring you closer to the life and relationship you desire. Call me today to schedule a time to chat.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

I believe that sex and intimacy are natural and necessary parts of adulthood. I'm here to help you differentiate between behaviors that help and behaviors that harm- in lots of different ways across our lives. I approach my work from a person-centered, sex positive perspective and do not typically pathologize my clients desires.
