A sexual problem, sometimes called a sexual dysfunction, is a problem during any phase of the sexual sexual act (such as desire, arousal or orgasm). Although many people experience trouble with sex at some point, it is a topic that many people are hesitant to discuss. There are a number of specific sexual disorders, including sexual desire disorders (low libido), sexual arousal disorders (inability to become aroused – erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness, for example), orgasm disorders (delay or non-appearance of orgasms) and sexual pain disorders (painful intercourse, most commonly affecting women). A sexual problem can occur suddenly or develop slowly, over an extended period of time. The reasons for sexual problems can widely vary but may include factors such as fluctuating hormones, aging, stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, diet, medications, illness or past sexual trauma. If you are dealing with sexual problems, a qualified professional therapist can help you identify the cause and help you develop ways to cope.

Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
Asking for help and letting someone in can be difficult and even intimidating. You may be looking for someone who can help you reach your mental health goals while also meeting you where you are in your life & mental health journey. I aim to create a space of comfort, safety, & trust in which clients can heal, progress, & develop self-compassion. I work with adults of all ages, across various cultures, ethnicities, religions, romantic/sexual relationship styles, and sexual & gender identities.
I work with individual adults and adolescents who desire deeper and more secure connection with themselves and others. I may be a particularly good fit for those who are navigating the impacts of complex trauma, domestic violence and partnership challenges, religious and spiritual trauma, attachment wounding, chronic illness and medical trauma, LGBTQ+ clients and those wanting to explore identity. I welcome clients whose needs and life experience exist outside of these particular areas, as well.
