It can be a vulnerable experience to discuss your intimate thoughts and experiences with another person. I enjoy cultivating a sense of ease, dignity, and curiosity about these parts of you. Types of sexual issues that I have experience or interest in:
Sex therapy is a clothes-on discussion about your feelings and experiences with relatedness to your whole self. I view sex as a dimension of general therapy; however, no client is required to talk about what they are not comfortable with. There is never sexual activity between myself and clients, and you will never be encouraged to touch or have sex with anyone you do not wish to. Any touch exercises suggested during session with your partner will be clothes-on and for the purpose of connection – not for sexual stimulation. Any sexual exercises suggested during your therapy will occur outside of session and only with you and, if applicable, your partners’ consent.I welcome clients across the sexual minority spectrums – LBGTQ+ folks, kink practices, sex workers, and non-monogamy. I am influenced by the works of David Schnarch, Esther Perel, Peggy Kleinplatz, and Jack Morin (my human sexuality instructor).

Longer or more frequent sessions may be recommended depending on your needs. Couples are recommended to have 80 minute sessions. Read more about my style or review FAQs.
