“My clinical work is generally intensive and short-term, addressing current and long-standing issues in a transformational manner.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As long as I can remember, I've wanted to help others in personal aspects of their lives. I enjoyed deeper conversations and found any and all topics to be comfortable to talk about. I attended Syracuse University and then enjoyed a first career in marketing communications while gaining life experience. I entered a master’s and doctoral program and transitioned into relationship therapy in private practice. I also supervise and train other therapists in the sex therapy specialty.
What should someone know about working with you?
My clinical work is generally intensive and short-term, addressing current and long-standing issues in a transformational manner. I provide a great deal of homework and resources for clients and enjoy working with the challenges of relationships in people's lives.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I carry unconditional positive regard toward others and work to support clients in the lives they choose for themselves. I am grounded in the concept of multiple perspectives and enjoy navigating differences among the couples and partners I work with.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
It's exciting to witness more people accessing help for challenges related to love, sex, and intimacy. These are incredibly personal aspects of one's life and the readiness of a therapist to work on these aspects requires expanded specialty training and personal work related to attitudes and values. Choosing an AASECT-certified sex therapist will ensure quality care.
