Profile
“I became a therapist because of my love for psychology and I became a couples and sex therapist because of my interest in helping individuals and couples work to create a healthy relationship and sex life.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I became a therapist because of my love for psychology and I became a couples and sex therapist because of my interest in helping individuals and couples work to create a healthy relationship and sex life. Outside of being a licensed psychotherapist, I have also completed AASECT training and am pursuing my PhD in clinical sexology. The combination of having my LCSW and additional education in sex therapy allows me to help individuals who are seeking therapy for matters unrelated to sex and relationships while possessing the expertise to serve individuals and couples who seek therapy for their relationship and/or sex life.
What should someone know about working with you?
I provide a free phone call consultation. If we are a good match, I will send you intake paperwork for you to fill out before your first session.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am working on a PhD in clinical sexology.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
Many people are nervous about therapy (especially when it comes to sex therapy). I grew up in a very religious home and I can understand how both religion and culture play a part in how we discuss sex and have sex. Because of my religious and cultural background, I am sensitive to how I approach the topic of sex and provide sex therapy to individuals and couples.
