AASECT Certified Sex Therapist at Calm N' Healing Counseling. Sex therapy for individuals, couples, and all relationship lifestyles.
Counselor in Austin, TX
I work with couples to increase communication skills and trust building. As individuals in relationship with another person, we may lose our identity and it is important for couples to be fulfilled individually in order to fulfill their partners. I empower couples to explore their intimate desires and increase their love, connection, and sex life with one another.
I provide a judgement-free zone for couples who identify as non-monogamous. Like any relationship, it is important to maintain effective communication with your partners. Are you exploring what you want your relationship to look like? Do you need help establishing boundaries? Is there a transition in your life that has caused distress? I can empower and guide you towards living the life you want.
I work with individuals and couples who experience erection and/or orgasm difficulties, sexual pain, anxiety towards human connection and touch, desire discrepancies, and sexual identity. What are your goals for your sex life?
Mindfulness-based therapy allows you to practice living in the present moment without judgement. It helps train yourself to look at a situation more logically, but also being aware of emotions that come up and accepting these emotions, coping with these emotions, and letting the emotions go. This will help with decreasing stress.
EFT is based on bonding the relationship. Relationships can get stuck in emotional patterns that can be negative to the relationship. EFT assists with shifting the patterns to create more positive emotional bond. Increase intimate satisfaction and trust.
DBT has four categories: mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills. DBT provides skills that can help you cope with feelings and stressful situations individually and communication skills with others.
Imago Therapy provides you with skills to mirror, validate, and empathize with your partner and building effective communication.
