I am a sex therapist experienced in helping people increase their sexual pleasure and find healing for their sexual struggles. I am a relational therapist, providing individual, couple, and group work from a systemic perspective-improving interactions between people. I frequently work with the LGBTQ, kink, non-monogamy, and sobriety communities. I also regularly work with clients seeking healing from sexual trauma. My work is designed with people of all orientations, gender expressions, and relationship styles in mind. I am currently learning the most from sexual health professionals who teach about the intersections of race, culture, and sexuality.
