About My Clients

Are you seeking ways in understanding sex, relationships, love, and intimacy? Are you seeking help with various sexual dysfunctions such as erectile dysfunction, premature or delayed ejaculation, performance anxiety, low libido, and relationship issues? Are you looking at opening up your relationship or finding ways to better your polyamorous relationship? These questions around sex and sexuality can be overwhelming, and my holistic practices in therapy can help you explore and heal.

My Background and Approach

I am here to walk with you towards finding healing through stress, anxiety, depression, and life transitions, as well as difficulty around sex and sexuality. I am happy to be a present and focused ally during these moments of doubt, frustration, and uncertainty. I present an approach that is part Solution Focused and part Depth Therapy. I am more process oriented in my style than directive. We all have to face numerous challenges that life throws at us. Whether it is difficulty with a loved one, challenges around life transitions or upsetting life circumstances, difficulty around intimacy, sexuality, and feeling “othered” due to these circumstances and identities, or difficulty with our own emotions, we all only have three options: resisting the change, just getting through it, or learning from the challenge and growing a bigger life as a result. My goal is to help you uncover your true potential, listen to your own wisdom, and start leading a life that is more of your own making.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe therapy is one of your most critical choices in your journey, and one that could be specialized in your growth and healing. The work that I focus on allows for a greater capacity to explore: *Learning to navigate life transitions, especially around sex and sexuality *Developing the freedom to express your authentic self within intimacy and sexuality *Recognizing barriers to romantic love and removing them *Finding your voice and becoming freer to speak your mind *Connecting and/or reconnecting to your creative self *Having more access to pleasure *Building self-esteem *Feeling less isolated *Replacing depression with a wider range of feelings and experiences *Developing skills to cope with anxiety I am a part of various sex positive/kink-aware communities and educational projects, and my goal is to help decrease the stigma of guilt/shame that comes from how various cultures and/or spiritualities see sex and sexuality.
