About My Clients

Do you find yourself struggling with your sexual identity(ies), what you are attracted to, the amount of time and energy you are spending on your sexual behaviors, and/or finding they are negatively impacting various areas of your life? Out of control sexual behaviors (OCSB, aka "sex addiction") is a very common concern and you're definitely not alone! Finding your true, healthy sexual self is the goal and purpose of our work together.

My Background and Approach

I work from a non-judgmental, strength-based and client-centered approaches (fair warning: bad jokes, analogies and metaphors get weaved into my work!) with a focus on helping you understand more of the "whys" behind the behaviors and struggles you're experiencing. I then work to help you understand how to use your own strengths and skills (or learn a couple of new ones) to redefine, and make reality, your version of sexual health. This can often come from a place of changing personal thoughts, ideas and increasing accepting yourself for who you are. All of our work together coming with the intent and goal of helping you build more confidence and enjoyment from your sexual self. Being "controlled" by your sexual behaviors, attractions or thoughts does not have to be your forever-reality.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I truly believe that every person, regardless of their sexual attractions, orientation, their behavior (past and present), and how long they have been struggling with accepting themselves (or what they have done/do), deserves to have fulfillment and satisfaction within their sexual lives. Everyone has the right to have a safe, private space to process and work on their personal sexuality and learn how to bring it to a place that helps them feel safe, connected and healthy. I never pretend to have all the answers, nor can I guarantee a person's personal definition will come 100% true, but I can promise to be that safe, non-judgmental and professional space to help you process, and work toward, that personal definition of sexual health.
