Individual

Therapy

Together we will get to know many aspects of you. As we pay mindful attention to the pain, needs, fears, desires, and functions of these different parts of you, we can foster a greater sense of ease in your life and open new avenues to joy and fulfillment. This is a fundamentally collaborative process. I believe that you are the expert of your own life, and that I can help facilitate your unique process by providing compassionate witnessing, gentle challenge, and empathic guidance. Therapy is likely to include processing your thoughts and emotions, exploring your values, developing additional tools and resources, practicing mindfulness, cultivating hope, achieving self-defined goals, celebrating your successes, and perhaps sharing a little laughter along the way.

Together we may address:

  • Anxiety and/or depression

  • Healing from traumatic experiences

  • Managing stress

  • Processing the impact of interpersonal relationships

  • Significant life transitions 

  • Grief and loss

  • Body image

  • Self-esteem

  • Exploring life goals and values, personal growth, and finding fulfillment

  • Sexual identity, Transitioning , and other LGBTQIA issues

  • Issues concerning power, equity, and oppression

  • Spirituality and meaning making

 

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy applies to any romantic constellation be it spouses, long-term partners, polyamorous relationships, dating, or "its complicated." 

The connections we share with one another often bring us our greatest joys and most difficult struggles. Together we will explore the dynamics that are impacting your relationship(s) and develop alternative ways you can relate to one another.    

Relational therapy often entails:

  • Improving communication and interpersonal dynamics

  • Working through conflict

  • Addressing contrasting values and desires

  • Seeking deeper connection and commitment

  • Rebuilding trust and healing from attachment ruptures

  • Negotiating monogamous and polyamorous relationship configurations

  • Premarital counseling

 

Sex

Therapy

Sex is a fundamental element of our lived experience, personal identity, and romantic relationships. Despite this nearly ubiquitous quality, sex and sexuality remain shrouded in taboo and mystery. Whether with a partner or individually, sex therapy removes the veil, allowing you to open up a conversation exploring your most intimate questions, fears, and desires in a sex-positive, comfortable environment.  

Sex therapy encompasses:

  • Discrepancies in level and/or content of desire (between partners)

  • Difficulty with your bits working as you would like them to

  • Sexual identity

  • Reconnecting with your sexuality following life transitions

  • Kink and the rainbow of sexual proclivities

  • Discomfort communicating about sex

  • Painful intercourse

  • Performance anxiety

  • Healing sexual trauma

  • Compulsive sexual behavior
