Other issues she commonly treats are desire discrepancies between couples, exploration of fantasies, discovering and re-discovering desire, and working with the LGBTQ+ community in exploring identity and healing from trauma. In relationship work, she guides partners through strategies to improve communication, identify attachment issues, heal from infidelity, and build intimacy and security in the relationship.

She has worked with individuals and couples since 2017 and is trained in Sex Therapy interventions, the Gottman Method, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, attachment theory, and Existential Therapy.

Message to clients

I have worked with many individuals and couples experiencing difficulty and hardship in their sex and relationship lives and have witnessed their issues dramatically improve through our work together. I specifically chose sex and relationship therapy as my focus after seeing how lost people were even after seeking support from professionals. Sexual issues can often leave even those in the medical and helping fields unable to provide their patients with helpful resources. In our work together, I will offer techniques, strategies, and solutions that will improve your sex and relationship life getting you to a place of satisfaction and relationship enhancement.

In our sessions together you can expect collaboration, genuineness, and a judgement free zone. When dealing with the most sensitive and difficult issues, I believe that you deserve a therapist who can offer you tools for healing. For more information contact me today or schedule a free 15-minute consultation over the phone.
