Everyone deserves to have a healthy relationship with their body and sexuality–no matter their sex, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, socio-economic status, education level, religious affiliation, STD status, or physical or mental capacity. Everyone, including you, deserves to have a positive body and genital self-image and an overall sense of sexual agency and self-esteem.
Therapy can be a safe space to address your sexual health concerns, transform sexual shame and negative body image, learn how to effectively communicate your feelings, desires, needs, and boundaries, and enhance your sense of embodiment and capacity to experience intimacy and pleasure.
I help individuals and couples cultivate a healthy relationship with their body and sexuality and expand their capacity to have a fun, meaningful, and connected sex life!
Some common issues that I work with include:
– Fear of intimacy
– Managing conflict and differences in intimate relationships
– Sexual shame
– Desire differences in couples
– Low arousal and desire
– Erectile dysfunction
– Difficulty with orgasm
– Sexual pain
– Survivors of sexual abuse
– Shame and low self-esteem
– Overactive inner-critic
– Mood swings and emotional dysregulation
– Loss and grief
– Life transitions
– Creative blocks
My therapeutic approach is collaborative and eclectic and incorporates the following treatment modalities: Humanistic Therapy; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; Transactional Analysis; Psychodynamic Therapy; Drama Therapy; and Psychodrama.
In addition to individual and couples therapy, I also facilitate Embracing Your Sexual Self workshops, Introduction to Drama Therapy Workshops, and Transform Your Life Script drama therapy groups.
I completed postgraduate sex therapy training at the University of Michigan Sexual Health Certificate Program. I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist(#86073) and associate at the Living Arts Counseling Center.
