Taking the steps to reach out and start therapy takes courage, which has the potential to transform your life. I believe therapy is a profoundly unique space where you have the opportunity to connect, feel deeply listened to and understood, challenged, and have another human show up for you emotionally and empathically.
I am a licensed psychotherapist and sex therapist and work with individuals, couples, and multiple-partner relationships. As a therapist (and well, person!), I am affirming, warm, caring, and empathic. I believe safe, interactive, collaborative, and attuned explorations of your inner world, fears, shame, strengths, and desires is crucial in our work together.
In our work together, you can expect curiosity, compassion, and connection-making. We will aim to deepen your understanding of yourself and your strengths, learn to listen and trust your intuition, and connect to and listen to all parts of yourself. We will work to identify, unpack and unlearn belief systems and narratives that thrive in your life, increase self-compassion, and move towards self-actualizing and sustaining your goals. The aim of my practice is to increase self-love, self-knowledge, acceptance, and compassion towards yourself.
I have specialized training and expertise in working with: trans, non-binary and queer identities, gender, sexuality, poly/non-monogamy, kink, BDSM, fetishes, sexual functioning, sexual anxiety, compulsive sexual behaviors, relationship conflict, infidelity, desire differences in relationships, parents with LGBTQ or gender/sexuality questioning children, conflicts of faith and/or spirituality with gender and sexuality, depression, anxiety, and HIV/AIDS.
