About My Clients

Couples who want to improve their communication.Couples and individuals who have lost or never had intimacy, and want to experience pleasure in their sex lives. Women who have trouble saying “no” and setting boundaries. Women who have experienced physical and or sexual trauma either in childhood or as an adult. Women who think they have had too many sexual partners or too few, or generally feel anxious about sex and intimate sex and intimate relationships. Women who experience pain during sex.

My Background and Approach

I practice sex positive, LBGTQ affirming, Kink and Poly friendly therapy. I work with sexual orientation, coming out, and questions/concerns around gender identity. My post graduate training was through University of Michigan's Sexual Health Certificate Program. I hold a certificate from U of M with concentrations in sex therapy and sexuality education. I also have training in the Gottman Method for couples. Your sexuality does not have an expiration date! Addressing sexual issues can improve your quality of living now, increasing pleasure! Contact me today for an appointment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe you deserve to have your concerns, disappointments and pain heard, so you can begin to heal. That childhood relationships with caregivers may affect intimate relationships in adulthood, and that your intimate relationships may offer the opportunity for that healing. In the past I served on Board of Directors of Affirmations LGBT Community Center, having been first a volunteer there, and then an intern. I am also an adjunct professor at the Wayne State University School of Social Work, teaching a graduate level Human Sexuality class. I believe that Human Sexuality is a social justice issue! We have a right to know how our bodies work, a right to control them, a right to be who we are, a right to love who we love, and a right to experience sexual pleasure between consenting adults with out shame.
