About My Clients
I am an AASECT certified Sex Therapist, who works with individuals and couples who identify as LGBTQIA+, Kinky, Sex Workers, or practice Polyamory/Ethical Non-monogamy. I help any client interested in experiencing a more fulfilling and balanced relationship with sexuality or gender and is looking to heal from trauma.
My Background and Approach
We all have the human need for connection and intimacy, but sometimes as the result of painful experiences we build walls and develop parts of ourselves that keep others at a distance. I'm passionate about helping people tackle these walls and find news ways of relating creating a balance between connection, closeness and personal autonomy in relationships. I have extensive training working with issues related to sex and sexual expression including: performance anxiety, painful sex, erectile dysfunction, problems with orgasm, desire differences among couples, out of control behavior and shame related to sexuality. I also have training in Internal Family Systems and work with trauma using this modality.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am passionate about providing an inclusive space of all sexual and gender expressions. I strive to remain sensitive to social disparities and the impact they can have on mental health. Additionally, I value the connection between the body and the mind, which I integrate in my practice holistically through emotional and somatic awareness. I find our body carries a lot of wisdom, and by learning to listen to it, we can heal from trauma. I use a strengths-based perspective when working with clients, and steer away from labeling and viewing people as a particular diagnosis or pathology. I value authenticity, empathy and creativity.
