Psychotherapy for Individuals and Partners/Couples
When it comes to sexuality and love, many of us are carrying around old stories, misinformation, and the pain of difficult experiences that we want to be free of. My approach to my work is grounded in collective wellness. I believe that our connection to others is what carries and sustains us through this life. It is my goal to help you create the rich and dynamic relationships that you want. Sex therapy can help with longstanding challenges and the complex dynamics that occur due to cultural/societal training, anxiety, depression, or PTSD/trauma. Through somatic, mind/body approaches, I teach my clients how to get back in touch with themselves, how to communicate more effectively, help them shed shame and misconceptions, increase intimacy and create sexy and sustainable relationships. I am proud to support people within the LGBTQ+, Kink/BDSM, Sex Worker, Ethical Non-monogamy communities.
Additionally, unlike many sex therapists, I’m also a sexuality educator. This means that I don’t focus solely on problems and sexual dysfunctions. I can provide short term coaching in which I answer specific questions about sexual pleasure and provide customized guidance on how to safely navigate new sexual activities and expand your sexual repertoire. Please contact me for more information.
