My Approach to Helping
My therapeutic approach is individualized to each patient and couple, integrating various individual and systemic theoretical perspectives and sexological models. Sexual concerns often coincide with emotional, psychological, and relational issues; thus, I take a biopsychosocial approach to therapy.
I integrate sex therapy and psychotherapy interventions through talk therapy and mindfulness and experiential methods in an effort to promote insight and awareness. It can be challenging to seek help from a therapist for relational and sexual issues; therefore, I meet patients where they are and at their comfort level discussing emotional and sexual concerns. Creating a safe space for patients and practicing non-judgment are my priorities.
