I offer individual counseling for those 18 and older. I work with a variety of presenting concerns such as grief, anxiety, depression, career indecision, management of stress, college or early career adjustment, relationship conflict, transitions, attachment trauma, and divorce. I utilize a variety of mediums to help you meet your goals. Always a learner, I routinely seek out opportunities to deepen my understanding of the human experience and healing process and am committed to my own personal growth journey.
I enjoy working with couples at all stages of their relationships, from early in their coupling (including premarital counseling) to those seasoned by many years of togetherness. I help couples heal from infidelity, improve their communication patterns, design preferred styles of interaction, and build stronger bonds and sexual relationships. Aligned with professional code of ethics and my own belief system, I do not discriminate and proudly support all couples who desire to learn how to love each other better. I am LBGTQ-affirming, and all couples or multi-member relationships are welcome in my office.
Sex therapy is first and foremost talk therapy. Some of my clients focus on their sexual wellbeing in individual sessions, and some of my sex therapy occurs with relationships. Common topics explored in sex therapy include desire discrepancy, painful intercourse, communication around sex, concerns about desire, sexual functioning, out of control sexual behaviors, and helping individuals and couples expand their understanding of eroticism. I believe everyone deserves to be sexually whole and that most everyone could benefit from support around their sexual self and lives at some point in their life. While I often invite clients to engage in behavioral activities, these are assigned for outside of session. I do not engage in sexual touch with clients and ask that clients respect that professional boundary with me. I am sex positive and kink-allied.
