I work with older adolescents, individual adults, couples and families. I work with couples where there has been aggressiveness andor infidelity.

And I have a knack for helping those who work in the sex industry. I’m LGBTQ friendly. I understand and am comfortable working with the complexities of modern relationships.
I teach a highly effective Emotional Regulation program. (Couple’s & Family Therapy. Social Anxiety specialist.)
