I offer affirming psychotherapy and sex therapy for individuals, couples, multiple-partner relationships, and poly and leather families. I welcome people of every ability, age, gender, national origin, race/ethnicity, religious affiliation, and sexual orientation. I am an expert in alternative sexualities, and I specialize in working with adults in the kink, poly, trans, GNC/NB, LGBQ, and sex work communities. I work with those who live openly and out; and those who have more conservative and private lifestyles. I also work with gender non-conforming and transitioning adolescents. My approach is holistic, person-centered, and collaborative.
People seek therapy with me for many reasons, including: a deeper understanding of identity or sexuality; difficulty adjusting to relationship difficulties or traumatic experiences; anxiety and/or depression; sexual functioning issues; compulsive thoughts or behavior; and/or changes in relationship structure or power dynamic. Most people decide to work with me because of my specialized training and experience, or because they feel more comfortable speaking to a therapist with first-hand knowledge of alternative identities and lifestyles.
I provide a safe, non-judgmental, and empowering space in which to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; identify patterns and potential barriers to progress that connect with current life experiences and/or to the past; recognize and build on personal strengths, resilience, and insight; and improve communication and decision-making skills. We'll work together to create concrete goals, and you'll take an active role in achieving them with my support and guidance. I look forward to meeting you.
