About My Clients

I work with individuals and couples who have difficulties adapting to the dynamics of an intimate relationship. This can be the result of traumatic experiences, the need for personal exploration, and/or sexual dysfunctions. The clients I typically work with are disappointed with their relationship and/or sex life, they may have experienced betrayal, they might avoid sex because it’s painful, stressful, or anxiety-producing, or want to expand their sex horizons (e.g., Kink, Vanilla, BDSM, etc.)

My Background and Approach

My clinical background comes from treating couples, families, and single individuals who struggle with sexual concerns and/or addictions. My approach to couple's and sex therapy goes beyond the idea of fixing the problem. It focuses instead on becoming a master communicator, feeling secure & authentic in your intimate relationships, and enjoying connected pleasure-filled intimacy and sex with your partner(s). I have extensive experience working with different populations and I can support a wide variety of individuals, from young adults to seniors. My goal is to have you at the center of the decision and help you navigate your way by providing feedback, sharing ideas, and creating a plan for your success. Through the therapy process, I expose clients to different aspects of their lives, especially how they attract/interact with others, and how this impacts and generates spikes of anxiety in their lives or in or outside the bedroom.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that everyone can change and grow at any time in their lives. I don't believe that there is a limit to human capacity. I think the main reason we develop mental health issues is because they are unhealthy learned behaviors that we have picked up along the way. For instance, sexual health is a crucial part in a romantic relationship, BUT often it gets overlooked because of the anxiety provoking topic, or because of the fear of being rejected. This line of thought causes many relationship to stumble and have neither partner needs met. It does not matter where you start but it is important to invest in yourself to become the person or couple you always wanted to be.
