Talking about sex and intimate relationships can be challenging, and being in the Deep South adds an additional element of complexity. However, I believe that you are the expert on yourself and that my role is to facilitate a deeper exploration of your values, goals, and relationships. Sometimes in life we can feel silenced and invalidated, struggling to set boundaries and to find our voice. Through working with me, you can expect to cultivate a relationship built on respect, authenticity, and honesty. In the words of Brene Brown, “You’re imperfect, and you’re wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.”
Mutually, we will navigate obstacles and celebrate progress. I am experienced working with LGBTQ+ individuals, couples, and health care professionals to provide an integrated approach to wellness. Common topics in sex therapy include: painful intercourse, erectile dysfunction, changes in libido, navigating polyamory, BDSM/kink, and enhancing communication.
I began facilitating discussions on healthy sexuality as an undergraduate in 2002. From there, I continued my education in public health with an emphasis on human sexuality. In 2008 I moved to Athens and served as the Sexual Health Coordinator at UGA until 2018. My return to school in 2018 was prompted by the desire to hone my clinical skills in sex therapy.
