My Approach to Therapy

I am passionate in understanding the dynamics that show up when we are in relationship with others. It's what drew me to the fields of both therapy and sexuality. My goal is to help find your authentic voice in your relationships. As a compassionate and attuned therapist and sex educator, I enjoy working with couples and individuals who are exploring the challenges of desire differences, sexual and gender identity issues, relationship struggles, addiction, parenting, anxiety and early attachment experiences, as well as those seeking existential meaning in life and love. I am extremely comfortable working with clients in the LGBTQI, sex work, kink and non-monogamy communities.

I have a passion for listening and I am driven to help you come to your own conclusions and solutions about what are the best ways for you to continue to move and grow. My goal is to provide you with a safe space to better understand and accept yourself.


I am guided by attachment theory and what is going on in the room. I tend to look at relationships through the lens of early attachment. I use a psychodynamic approach to treatment. I am comfortable talking about sexuality and sexual dysfunction, and believe it is an integral part of getting to the heart of communication issues, anxiety and depression.
