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 interventions will work well for you. I have experience using cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, Imago and mindfulness approaches. One of the first things that you will notice is that I will not judge you or your relationships. 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, communicate better in relationships, resolve issues, improve sexual functioning and help reduce anxiety, depression, pain and suffering.
I have worked in the field for over 10 years and I provide both individual and relationship therapy. I am an AASECT certified sex therapist and I am also certified to treat co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders. I have extensive experience working with anxiety and depression as well as a variety of sexual and relationship issues. 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 consensually non- monogamous, swinger, polyamorous and/or kink relationships are welcome.
I offer clinical supervision for clinicians working towards their license in clinical social work or counseling and run a group for therapists specializing in working with kink identified and polyamorous clients. I do a variety of public speaking engagements including talks about ethics in working in small alternative sexuality communities, treating kink identified clients, working with consensually non- monogamous or polyamorous clients, ask the sex therapist, etc.
