I believe you're here because something in your life isn't work as you would like it to. I would like to help you tap into your internal, intrinsic ability to identify where the problem is, make changes where you can, develop self-compassion if that is lacking in your life, and heal what hurts. Whether you are just figuring out who you are and have known for some time, I provide an affirming and knowledgeable collaborative environment for you to make the change you need to.
My graduate training program was based in psychodynamic teachings. I continue to seek out continuing educational opportunities to support this foundational understanding of human behavior.
I have received training in the specific skills of DBT and incorporate these skills into my work where appropriate.
I have complete the foundational EMDR training. While this is an area of practice I am not certified and do not focus on this aspect of my training in treatment.
I am currently receiving additional training in sex therapy with a focus on holistic and integrative approaches. I am a proponent of, and have have received prior training in, the benefits of kink-oriented practices in personal growth and healing. A particular area of specialty is in transitions from type of sexual identity and/or practice to another. Personal identity vs. personal practice is an area of interest.
I have a 20 year personal history with this identity. In addition I have attended numerous trainings over the last decade and continue to immerse myself in new developments taking place in the various communities attached to non-monogamy in it's many forms and manifestations.
