Utilizing scientific theory and techniques to understand how to become unstuck and flourish going forward.
A sexual problem, sometimes called a sexual dysfunction, is a problem during any phase of the sexual sexual act (such as desire, arousal or orgasm). Although many people experience trouble with sex at some point, it is a topic that many people are hesitant to discuss. There are a number of specific sexual disorders, including sexual desire disorders (low libido), sexual arousal disorders (inability to become aroused – erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness, for example), orgasm disorders (delay or non-appearance of orgasms) and sexual pain disorders (painful intercourse, most commonly affecting women). A sexual problem can occur suddenly or develop slowly, over an extended period of time. The reasons for sexual problems can widely vary but may include factors such as fluctuating hormones, aging, stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, diet, medications, illness or past sexual trauma. If you are dealing with sexual problems, a qualified professional therapist can help you identify the cause and help you develop ways to cope.

My office is a space for deep reflection, necessary tantrums, catharsis, nurturing, poetry, and imagination. I work with earnest human beings around human problems: anxiety, shame, heartache, rage, gender, the want to escape the terrible traps of trauma and toxic culture and old survival patterns, the search for authenticity and meaning, the desire for love and pleasure and sex.
I am most interested in embodying wise love in relationship. The sentiment is simple enough, but the reality requires ongoing reflection, learning, healing, attunement, humility, and ever-deepening wisdom. I help individuals, couples, and groups move through stuck patterns and develop capacities to embody wise love and freedom.
I am honored and privileged to join my clients on their journeys. A successful therapy experience is two-sided: a high level of motivation and commitment on your part, along with my experience, expertise and support. My clients tend to be ready and willing to take deep dives inward to explore themselves. Examining perspectives can lead to deeper understanding and thus allow you to make the shifts you desire. My relationship work often does not need to be long-term. Offering virtual in VT, PA
