Struggling with relationships? I work with individuals and couples to build healthy communication skills and develop connection in your life
Clinical Social Worker in San Diego, CA
I have extensive training in evidence-based treatment methods to treat a wide variety of trauma, utilized in practice for over 10 years.
I have 10 years of clinical experience and 5 years of working with couples tackling issues of infidelity, miscommunication, and conflict. I am passionate about helping people achieve connection and love with themselves and each other. I specialize in working with poly/kink/open relationships and am sex, kink, and body positive. I cultivate an unbiased, non-judgmental perspective that allows you to feel safe to fully express your deepest thoughts and feelings and receive understanding.
Whether you are already open or are looking to explore the possibility, communication and connection are key. Like all intimate relationships, open relationships can be both rewarding and challenging, but can also be more complicated. It is important to learn to communicate effectively with our partners, set appropriate boundaries, and identify needs. Therapy can bring conscious awareness and gives you a choice in how you deal with issues individually and together.
Relationships can be a source of safety, comfort, fulfillment, and joy, but when conflict and misunderstanding occurs, we are often left feeling frustrated, resentful, hopeless, and lonely. You are here because you’ve reached your breaking point and you are no longer willing to settle for a lifetime of tension and unhappiness. If you are willing to put in the effort, we can build a healthy relationship.
Sex-positivity means having a world view that perceives sexual diversity through an open-minded and non-judgmental lens, believing that sexual pleasure is everyone’s birth-right, in harmony with a rich and fulfilling life. In our sessions together, you can expect to be fully honored, respected, and valued. My priority is to ensure your comfort and provide you with a place where you can reclaim the strength and confidence needed to heal the past, celebrate the present, and build your future.
I am trained in using the Gottman Method and use research based concepts and techniques to assist with identifying patterns, addressing conflicts effectively, and building a healthy relationship based on trust, mutual goals, and connection.
