My clients are busy professionals in a variety of careers who are struggling with stress and anxiety and want more peace and fulfillment in their life. They are looking for a therapist who is empathetic, culturally sensitive, and an expert at helping clients navigate stressors. I specialize in working with overwhelmed professional adults struggling with stress and anxiety in managing their day-to-day life experiences and empowering them to move forward to a brighter future.
You feel alone in your relationship. You want to reconnect but don't know how. Your ability to communicate with one another needs a tune up. You are in pain, stressed, and unsure what to think about the future of your relationship. Your inner voice is pushing you to focus on yourself as a means to work toward deeper connections with friends and partners. I work best with folx exploring gender, relationships, and sex therapy related topics (desire discrepancy, sexual function, loss of connection)
I love to work closely with my clients and accompany them as they navigate change and challenges that life inevitably brings. Areas of specialization include anxiety, depression, and trauma. I also am passionate about helping people with chronic illness, physical disabilities and complex medical issues .
Being human is often tough. Sometimes we lose our way and can feel stuck and overwhelmed. Sometimes we would like to change parts of our lives or ourselves but don’t know how. Therapy can be an empowering way to promote healing, growth, and wellness. Often, we initially seek treatment to address a specific concern and then begin to uncover other areas of our lives in which we want to make meaningful change. My goal is for this process to feel supportive, affirming, and appropriately challenging.
I enjoy working with clients on healing childhood trauma, processing and integrating past experiences, boundaries, communication, learning to trust yourself and honor your needs, quieting the inner critic, and finding ways to tap into joy and play again. I celebrate and honor the unique needs of individuals who experience or have been impacted by systemic inequity and oppression, especially 2SLGBTQIAA+ folx, the Black community, people with disabilities, and the neurodivergent community.
I have worked with many adolescents, adults, families, and couples struggling with ADHD, anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, communication difficulties, low self-esteem, and challenges specific to members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
We help professionals and soon to be professionals deal with stresses and anxiety, career concerns, and work through life transitions. We also help individuals deal with relationships, including dealing with difficult people, issues with friends of family members, and traditional and non-traditional relationships.
Maybe your life has become increasingly overwhelming and difficult to manage due to anxieties, sadness, or self-doubt. Daily activities and relationships leave you feeling stressed, alone, or reacting in ways that frustrate and discourage you. Leaning on others for support might feel like an impossible and isolating task. I appreciate and value your insight and courage to reach out. Let's work together on this next step of your journey.
I specialize in guiding preteens to young adults and couples through life's hurdles. Whether navigating depression, anxiety, grief, family discord, trauma histories, panic, ADHD, ASD (autism), or pivotal life transitions, I'm here to support you. No matter your journey or aspirations, we'll collaborate to forge your path forward.
Sometimes life can become overwhelming and it"s good to have an unbiased 3rd party to talk with. Many of my clients struggle with anxiety or depression so severe, that it gets in between their family, friends, jobs and interests. I want to help you over come these problems, so that you can begin to live the life that you want. Regardless if the problem is recent or longstanding, I want you to know that there is hope.
As a therapist my role is to create a safe space to explore the self, our relationships, and to heal the wounds that hold us back from living a full life. My specialties include working with teens and young adults. I believe these years provide a valuable time to assist clients in building upon their strengths, working on positive communication skills, and helping to develop healthy coping strategies.
My clients come from all races, sexual and faith orientations, occupations and genders. Our work together may include relationship issues, infidelity and affairs, anxiety, stress, depression, sex therapy, out of control sexual behavior and more. My approach to therapy is authentic, relational, and trust based. I am also a sex positive therapist who is both comfortable and competent in sex, sexual dysfunction, BDSM and kink.
Are you having relationship problems or sexual difficulties? I specialize in working with women and couples seeking sex therapy and couples counseling to improve intimacy and communication and to deal with desire discrepancy and conflict. I work with women's sexual health issues: vaginismus, sexual trauma, past abuse, pelvic pain, low desire. There is help, don't suffer! Call me. I offer a client-centered approach and trauma-informed care to help you as a unique individual or couple.
Over the past couple of years, we have been through so much unpredictability, loss and tension - if not personally, we have never been more exposed to events happening all around us through media platforms. I promise whatever difficult feelings you are experiencing, they are valid. Lets find what tactics highlight your resiliency!
I have a passion for working with adolescent, young adult and adult individuals who need assistance with navigating life transitions, depression, anxiety, learning disabilities, and sexuality. Figuring out one's path can be difficult, however it is my mission to help clients along this journey. It is my duty to be a positive support for all those seeking therapy. I will assist those without judgement or discrimination.
The one thing my clients have in common is kink. This is not to say that kink is what brings them to therapy! My clients come to me for the same reasons anyone enters therapy: anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, sexual concerns- because they know that I will never judge their BDSM dynamics or fetish interests as we do that work. A few come to me because they feel sexual shame or embarrassment around their fetish interests. I am here for anyone who needs an affirming space to be themselves
Using a person-centered, eclectic and cross-cultural perspective when working with clients, I understand each individual and each experience is unique. I provide a warm, non-judgmental, and safe space for clients to share their most innermost struggles. I am interested in empowering clients by helping them process their emotions, identify their strengths, and learn new healthy coping techniques to help them overcome their stressors and traumas.
Most of my clients wish they could have a life with more joy, more fulfillment, or more abundance. They want to feel greater satisfaction in their relationships, career, or sense of self…but oftentimes, they don’t know where to start. I typically work with people who are looking to develop greater self-acceptance, learn better coping skills, and develop healthier relationship dynamics in order to find a greater sense of satisfaction in life. If this sounds familiar, know that you’re not alone.
My clinical expertise is working with survivors of trauma, sex abuse, social injustice, and domestic violence. I also work with individuals, couples, and families on building healthy relationships, coping with loss, overcoming anxiety and depression, as well as issues specifically relating to the LGBTQ population.
