The goal of my practice is to provide a safe place for people to explore their lives and learn skills to help them cope. Instead of using one therapeutic style for every client, I will work with you to choose what type of therapy will work well for you. I have experience using cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic and mindfulness approaches. One of the first things that you will notice is that I will not judge you and I will not think you are "crazy". I will help you figure out what issues you want to work on and how we can best address them. Together we can change behaviors, resolve issues, improve sexual functioning and help reduce anxiety, depression, pain and suffering.
I have worked in the field for 10 years and I provide individual and couples therapy. I am certified to treat co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders and have extensive experience working with depressive and anxious symptoms. I have a special interest in supporting individuals through issues related to sexual exploration, sexual functioning, sexual identity and gender identity. Clients who are in polyamorous, swinger and/or kink relationships are welcome. I am in the process of getting certified as a sex therapist and appreciate the opportunity to address issues such as lack of sexual desire, difficulty with orgasm, and sexual functioning problems.
I am also offering clinical supervision for clinicians working towards their license in clinical social work or counseling.
