What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

You found me because your sexuality has impacted your life in some way. (To be clear, sex is the act and sexuality is part of who you are.) Even though my title says sex therapist, I counsel people on exploration of sexuality. I became a sex therapist not because I grew up in a sex positive household where we all feel comfortable about our sexuality with our sexuality. Far from it. I became a sex therapist because of my love of people, their stories, and to help them find the words to share their experiences of pleasure, desire, and sensuality. My greatest desire (okay, one of them) is to help you create a language for your intimate experience so that you can identify and articulate what turns you on and confidently, clearly, and lovingly share that, if you choose. What I know is that language is not only the building block of stories but of communication.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I trained as a contemplative psychotherapist at Naropa University, where meditation and mindfulness were foundational elements of my studies. As my mentor there used to say, “Therapy is about creating more choices." I teach mindfulness skills integrated with a cognitive-behavioral approach. I will support you in having more awareness of your behaviors and cognitions, so that you can move past your limitations to create more satisfaction in your life. My areas of expertise include relationship counseling, intimacy, and sexuality. Although educated as a general clinician, I am certified as a sex therapist and am passionate about helping people experience more love.
