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.

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 work best with LGBTQ+ clients who have a desire to learn about and explore their relationship with themselves, others, and the world around them to move towards a more integrated and holistic way of being. This may encompass reprocessing past traumas, responding to symptoms of depression and anxiety from a place of compassion, or developing new ways of expressing and sharing one's identity and self. I enjoy helping my clients to become more curious, resilient, insightful, and courageous.
It can be hard to cope sometimes in this ever-changing world... Do you want more out of life? Do you want more than what a life coach or an accountability coach has to offer such as therapy with a licensed therapist with actual behavior management training and over 20 years experience? Your treatment should NOT feel like a fast-food drive thru. I work with adults, adolescents, children, and families to manage their mental health symptoms and/or disability needs.
