About

I am energized by the prospect of helping you restore the passion in your relationship. I do not believe that anyone should settle for companionship without engaging the Eros side of life and relationship. Together, we can discover why sex and emotional intimacy is lacking in your relationship and create a plan to fix what's broken.

Q&A

I LOVE people! I get to sit with new folks on a daily basis and build relationship and connection to help individuals and partners repair themselves and their experience of the partnership. My favorite aspect is seeing where a person is in session 1 and then reminding them of how far they come in our last couple of sessions. That is always an emotional and gratifying experience for me.

I decided to go rogue and stop working in agencies when I realized that I couldn't do the kind of therapy I was created to do while working within someone else's model. I needed to be able to really connect with my clients, care less about the bottom line, and create individualized treatment plans that sometimes step outside of the box a bit. In my own private practice I find that I can employ a more holistic and integral approach to therapy that doesn't typically occur in many larger agencies.

I think clients should choose me because I am passionate about the work I do, I am brilliant, and I will openly share all of the wisdom and skills I have with you. I do not however, believe that everyone should choose me. Therapy is most definitely not "one-size-fits-all". If you are an individual or partner who is looking to have a healthier understanding of who you are within yourself, your relationships, and in the world, and if that means you want to explore and confront your emotions, sexuality, spiritual health, and patterns of thinking then I'm probably the therapist for you. Please keep in mind that this is hard work and requires a lot of courage and boldness on your part. I will both guide and walk alongside to help get you to where you want/need to be, but this takes a mutual effort for sure.
