About My Clients
I love working with partners seeking more passion and intimacy in long-term relationships; those longing to rebuild trust and erotic connection after betrayal; non-monogamous partners or those curious about opening up; folks struggling with sexual challenges and partners who long to fight less and enjoy each other more.
My Background and Approach
I'm an integrative AASECT certified sex and relationship therapist. I draw from a variety of approaches including EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy), AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Therapy), the Developmental Model and other experiential-somatic approaches to sex and relationship therapy. My style is warm, direct, playful and at times, challenging. When working with partners, I act as a bridge to help you and your partner(s) grow in love, understanding and intimacy with one another.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Healing happens in the context of safety and love. Through attuned listening, warmth and presence, we'll create a space to help you explore your inner world(s) with curiosity and kindness. Living a satisfying and rich life often entails examining places inside that can be scary or confusing to navigate alone. As your healing companion and ally, I'll both challenge you to grow and deeply meet you exactly where you are. We'll approach this work as a team-- engaging in a dynamic relationship that supports your increasing self-awareness and enables you to make meaningful changes in your life and relationship(s). As far as my own journey goes, I've been on a committed inner growth path for 15+ years and deeply believe in the power to heal and transform. I hold a feminist, sex-positive and social justice-oriented lens on the world and strive to support clients in living in ways that feel authentic and in integrity for them. I welcome diversity of all kinds in my practice.
