"My therapy experience includes working with women and men, ages 15 to 80, of all ethnicities and many religious backgrounds. Although I specialize in relationship and sex therapy, clients have come to me with many types of psychological pain: depression, anxiety, grief and loss, couple or family conflict, infidelity, internet pornography addiction, family of origin worries, spirituality, trauma reactions, anger concerns, sexual dissatisfaction, infidelity, sexual compulsions/addictions, negative body image, trauma, sexual orientation and gender identity exploration, family violence, and sexual assault and abuse.”
“I strive to be non-judgmental, holding no preconceived notions of how you should live your life. I openly support sexual, personal, spiritual, and religious freedom and growth. As a therapist, I understand that each person’s problems and life situations are unique. While maintaining confidentiality and respect for you, I will strive to assist you in moving toward improved sexual health and greater satisfaction in your life.”
