Sex Therapist in Royal Oak, MI

About My Clients

My clients are often people who feel out of step with mainstream life. Many of them practice ethical non-monogamy or identify as kinky. Some are gender fluid, or transitioning. About half see me individually while the others see me together with their partner(s). We focus on a wide variety of topics related to relationships, sex and intimacy, communication, and conflict resolution.

My Background and Approach

I'm a collaborative, conversational, client-centered therapist who believes that you are the expert on your life and experiences... I am simply a highly skilled sounding board, trained to ask good questions and offer specialized knowledge where doing so is useful. I love working with couples, as well as individuals who are motivated by self-discovery and a desire for deeper connections. As a Sex Therapist, I am an expert in supporting clients who identify as gender, sexuality, and relationship minorities. I'm the author of several books on BDSM/kink and mental health and love working with couples who are struggling with guilt/shame, feelings of stigma, and differences in desire. I am also here to support clients who feel like they're struggling with problematic sexual behaviors, who may have been afraid to seek out therapy in the past. Either alone or with your partner(s), I am here to offer information, specific suggestions, and support as you rediscover your own best selves.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My mission is first and foremost, is to help my clients build positive, happy, healthy relationships with their bodies, their partners, and themselves. I want them to see that sex and intimacy can be a positive force for good in their lives. That is what brings me to work every. single. day.
