Welcome! I'm a relationship & sex therapist committed to helping you explore and create a safe, fulfilling, and passionate relational life.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Austin, TX
The stories we are told about our lives, whether by society, others, or ourselves, dramatically impact the trajectories of our lives.
The heart of my work is to help you make sense of your challenges, clarify your values, and craft an intimate, joyful, and meaningful life aligned with them.
"If nothing we do matters, all that matters is what we do." Meaning arises from the actions we take and the relationships we form with ourselves and others.
Finding a therapist who is comfortable with the notion of non-monogamous relationships can be a difficult task. Those currently in or seeking to explore any form of consensual non-monogamous relationship often find their ability to commit, mental health, and sexual interests questioned and pathologized by family, friends, and greater society. In my practice, I provide therapy from a trained and affirmative perspective on consensual non-monogamy.
I have built my career on serving individuals, couples, and groups around their relational lives. I firmly believe that our intimate relational lives, both with ourselves and with those around us, ultimately shape the way in which we move through the world. Together, we can create a space for your relationship, one where difficult emotional experiences like fear and shame can be a source of intimacy and connection rather than a source of pain.
An all-too-often neglected part of the relationship cycle, breakups and divorce are a natural and important part of a relational and intimate life. They have the power to transform us in meaningful ways that intact relationships often cannot, to completely shift our perspective of success, intimacy, love, compassion, and certainty. Simultaneously, they can also melt away the images we have of our lives, our futures, and our very characters.
