It is very common that as a person ages, sexuality and intimacy concerns may arise.  These and other difficult life issues often lead to anxiety or depression.  Similarly, various life transitions such as career changes, education, relationships, moving, or caregiving become additional sources of burden to bear. 


Under trying circumstances, asking for support or coming to therapy, no matter what age, seems daunting. My approach decreases this intimidation and creates a safe, constructive haven where you can express your emotions. I cannot wave a wand to eliminate your problems, but I will help you discover the answer that lies within you. Often a person needs a gentle nudge and guidance to realize they hold the key to achieve the best life possible.


With a Doctorate in Human Sexuality and a Master's in Social Work, I accumulated experience working with individuals struggling with sexuality and intimacy issues as well as mental health issues. I know life at times proves difficult, but you do not have to go through it alone.
