Are you struggling postpartum? I offer specialized postpartum support so that you can find relief.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Portland, OR
You are one step closer to relief and fulfillment in your sexual life. Maybe you’re here because you're feeling anxious about sex, disconnected from your desire, want to feel more sexually empowered, or need support processing sexual trauma. Whatever brings you to sex therapy, I'm here to offer a compassionate and supportive space to feel more at ease with your sexuality.
During pregnancy, I can support you with preparing for birth and postpartum, processing your childhood experiences that are coming up as you prepare to become a parent, addressing anxiety or fear about what comes next, and navigating sexual changes. Postpartum support may include processing the identity shift you're experiencing, processing your birth or birth trauma, navigating feeding challenges, or addressing postpartum anxiety or depression.
Using attachment theory, I help you develop awareness of how the relationships in your life have impacted you and how this may be showing up with your current struggles. I aim to provide a secure and supportive therapeutic relationship, as this can be a powerful tool for experiencing the change you crave.
Using psychodynamic therapy, my goal is to help you build insight into why you're struggling. I will work with you to identify your patterns and how these patterns impact you. I also hold space for the knowledge that these patterns have allowed you to get to the where you are, and may have served you in the past. With this knowledge, I’ll help you form new patterns for yourself which align more closely with your values.
