Kink, Poly/CNM, & LGBTQ+ Affirming Psychologist & Certified Sexual Wellness Therapist Helping Individuals & Couples Embrace Sex & Eroticism.
Psychologist in San Diego, CA
Sex Therapy is a wonderful and safe way to learn how to enjoy better sex. You’ll become more aware of your beliefs, feelings, values, patterns, expectations, and preferences regarding sex. This means that you’ll also have the opportunity to discover and choose how sex can be more fulfilling and pleasurable for you. Whether you live with performance anxieties, desire discrepancies, or want more emotional intimacy in your sex life, I'd be happy to help you achieve your goals.
I provide stigma-free, affirming, high-quality individual therapy to those in the LGBTQ+ community. I am committed to helping you feel safe, valued, and deeply respected. Some feel confused about their sexual orientation or sexuality. Others simply want help from someone who understands the challenges, stigma, and discrimination they face. Whatever your reason is for seeking therapy, you'll be in good hands with a provider who can help you address your needs.
As a psychologist treating individuals of Gender, Sexuality, and Relationship Diversity (GSRD), my practice is inclusive of those of all genders, sexual orientations, identities, kinks, relationship structures, and behaviors between consenting adults.
Anxiety is a normal and adaptive emotion we all experience from time to time. However, problematic anxiety can affect your work and home life, prevent you from connecting with loved ones, and leave you ruminating on all the awful “what-ifs." Anxiety can also make you irritable, disrupt sleep, and even cause panic attacks. The good news is that it can be treated. So, what if you could be comfortable in your own skin? I’d argue that’s one “what if” scenario worth exploring.
Whether you're an experienced kinkster or you're newly interested in exploring kink/BDSM safely, I am passionate and knowledgable about helping folx whose sex includes some form of kink or BDSM. Issues related to the importance of enthusiastic consent, self-esteem, clear and assertive communication, as well as safely exploring your fantasies and understanding why you find certain forms of kink particularly erotic are common topics in treatment.
