All persons and families experience difficulties. Counseling can help you gain insight, develop coping skills, increase motivation, and illuminate your perspective, and increase joy in your life.
I work with individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, and mood issues. My treatment approach includes an integration of insight-oriented approaches, family of origin exploration, liberation theory, and cognitive approaches to assist in resolving problems or alleviating distress experienced by clients.
I am a Professional Member of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists. I am welcoming of:
LGBTQ+ relationships, CNM relationships, adult workers, relational issues including premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, low libido, and persons struggling with shame surrounding sexuality or those hurt by toxic religious experiences.
Sex therapy is not rooted in shame based methods or approaches or pathologizing labels. I offer a safe non judgmental environment for you and or your partner (s) to discuss your concerns.
I work with couples and families to address communication problems, unhealth patterns, and rebuilding trust. For relationship counseling, marriage, and family therapy I integrate bowenian family therapy, structural family therapy, and strategic family therapy when working with couples and families.
I also work with couples to address relationship problems including infidelity and blended families and co-parenting.
Religion and spirituality are important to many persons but are unique to each person. I will seek to understand your spiritual perspective and will honor your spiritual perspective in counseling.
I have completed graduate course work in religion and theology. I will assist you in navigating any spiritual issues you might want to address.
