Speaking openly about sexual habits, desires, and relationships can be awkward for patients. However, I believe that open dialogue about these topics are important and normal in the therapeutic space. I do my best to make these topics as painless and natural to speak about as possible. Having a graduate certificate in LGBT Health and Policy guides many of my interventions and thoughts about sex and relationships. All I ask is that my patients come with open minds and a willingness to discuss these sometimes challenging topics. We live in a culture that is deeply oppressed around topics of sex, desires, and fetishes. It is my goal to change this by allowing patients to come as they are and speak openly to me about their feelings. Open relationships, polyamory, and ethical non-monogamy have become hot-button topics, but can be deeply misunderstood, and are often viewed as taboo. I understand that not all relationships look the same, and that not all people want the same things. Families look different, and that is something to be celebrated. I am actively staying abreast of the most current research on these topics so that I can help you to navigate their stigma while maintaining the happy, healthy bonds you have with your partners.

Psychologist, PsyD, MEd
Sex is such an important part of life for most of us. However, we live in a mostly sex-negative society that leaves many people unsure of how to talk about sex, unsure of how you feel about sex, and shame about being a sexual being. This shame can manifest in many ways in your sexual life. It can cause anxiety, depression, sexual difficulties in the bedroom, and relational stress. I invite you to share this private and intimate part of your life in a space designed to promote acceptance and understanding and therefore reduce distressing feelings or experiences you might be experiencing.

Psychologist, Psy. D., M.A.
Matters of intimacy can be physical in nature that, in some ways, connect with our emotional lives and can become more complicated as we grow into our relationships with others.
I work extensively with both Clinical and Forensic populations, delivering targeted Behavioral, Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), and Dialectical Behavioral (DBT) Therapies tailored to the specific needs of each individual client.
