My approach to therapy involves working from a sex positive focus, which helps individuals explore healthy sexuality as opposed to pathologizing or shaming their sexual behaviors. I help clients explore the underlying meaning of their behaviors and find ways to heal wounded relationships. While I have specific training in helping individuals who have struggled with compulsive sexual behaviors, I am more generally an intimacy therapist.
As an intimacy therapist I help clients explore their barriers to experiencing and sustaining intimate relationships.. Often times those difficulties are a product of multiple influences across a person’s life. From early social interactions, to cultural and societal beliefs, experiences with abuse or neglect, and our earliest relationships (our caregivers/parents). I help clients look at how these influences have impacted their relationships and potentially created insecurities.
