About My Clients

I love working with partners seeking more passion and intimacy in long-term relationships; those longing to rebuild trust and erotic connection after betrayal; non-monogamous partners or those curious about opening up; folks struggling with sexual challenges and partners who long to fight less and enjoy each other more. Additionally, I enjoy working with folks facing big life transitions, work stressors, relationship and/or erotic challenges and those wanting to shift unhealthy patterns.

My Background and Approach

In sessions together, you'll likely learn important relational and/or coping skills, increase insight, shift patterns that don't serve you and have new experiences of connection, self- and/or partner- discovery. I'll provide a welcoming, compassionate space for you to share what's on your heart and mind and support you in illuminating a way through the rough spots in your life and relationship(s). In addition to gaining an M.A. in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Expressive Arts Therapies, I've continued to deepen my knowledge and skill in Couples and Sex Therapy. I love working experientially-- using the "here-and-now" experience to increase mindfulness and to help folks learn new ways to inhabit their bodies, lives, and relationships. My style is warm, relational, direct and at times, playful. When working with partners, I act as a bridge, helping you and your partner(s) understand each other so that you can experience a connection rich in intimacy and aliveness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Healing happens in the context of safety and love. Through attuned listening, warmth and presence, we'll create a space to help you explore your inner world(s) with curiosity and kindness. Living a satisfying and rich life often entails examining places inside that can be scary or confusing to navigate alone. As your healing companion and ally, I'll both challenge you to grow and deeply meet you exactly where you are. We'll approach this work as a team-- engaging in a dynamic relationship that supports your increasing self-awareness and enables you to make meaningful changes in your life and relationship(s). As far as my own journey goes, I've been on a committed inner growth path for 15+ years and deeply believe in the power to heal and transform. I hold a feminist, sex-positive and social justice-oriented lens on the world and strive to support clients in living in ways that feel authentic and in integrity for them. I welcome diversity of all kinds in my practice.
