I am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist who works with children, adolescents, and adults of all sexual orientations. I have substantive training in Gottman Method Therapy and have been practicing for over 15 years. Because sexuality and gender are natural aspects of human development, a part of my clinical practice is dedicated to providing services to parents, children, and teens. I assist parents in learning to become the primary sexual educators for their children. I also work with children and adolescents who have been sexually abused, who are exhibiting sexual behavior problems, who want to learn about healthy relationships, who are experiencing gender related difficulties, or who are attempting to manage questioning or sexual orientation issues.
I value providing services in a non-judgmental environment of comfort, sensitivity, and safety. My therapeutic style is characterized by warmth, empathy, humor, and a caring yet direct approach. I tailor therapeutic interactions to meet each client's needs. You will find me easy to talk to and fair minded. I utilize a structured, pragmatic approach to therapy that is based on years of research. I enjoy helping clients create the kind of change that makes them happier and fulfilled both inside and outside of the bedroom.
My clients are very invested in being successful in all aspects of their lives, including their romantic and interpersonal relationships. As a result, they tend to be open to self exploration and hold themselves accountable for their involvement and commitment to treatment. My clients are typically willing to emotionally, cognitively, and financially invest in the treatment process. They also tend to value and seek out specialists with advanced training.
