My Ideal Client

My practice is a great fit for: social isolation and loneliness; chronic and unwanted single-hood; sexual avoidance in couples and individuals; low libido; high-conflict couples; erectile dysfunction and vaginismus; shame resolution; creative longing.

My Approach to Helping

My practice is called Awake Together because I help my clients connect the the open, flexible nature of their true selves in the safety of secure relationships. I work from the principle that in relationship we need to know we're safe, and we need to know we can be ourselves. When we find ourselves struggling to create or maintain the connections we yearn for, and losing our self-worth in the process, early attachment trauma is almost certainly at fault. I help my clients integrate this trauma, so that they can relate to others from a seat of authentic connection and self worth. I hold the Antioch University certificates in Sex Therapy and Sex Education because I believe that sex is an essential part of our identities as individuals and partners. It is also the best proving ground for our ability to be truly close to another human, in all the messiness of the present moment.

Why I Became a Therapist

I'm on this path because I know how hard it can be to be a human, and I am very grateful to the healers who have helped me make my way. I specialize in relationships, intimacy, attachment and creative longing because this is where my life demanded that I work, and I feel proud and grateful that my pain has now been transmuted into my offering for my clients. I’m trained in multicultural counseling and work from an anti-racist, anti-oppression lens. The guiding therapeutic models of my work are Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). Most of the work I do is centered in attachment theory.
