Individual Therapy

150$/50 minute session
Insurances accepted: Cigna, United, Aetna, Optum, Oscar

Do you want to create change in your life but don't know where to start?
Do you struggle with intimacy or relationships

Are you ready to let go of old patterns and beliefs that are holding you back from reaching your full potential? 


You have come to the right place. Working with me individually will be an opportunity for you to tap into your inner wisdom, become more embodied, and live with purpose. 

We will spend the first session or two identifying your unique treatment goals so that you are not in therapy for longer than necessary. Once you meet your treatment goals we will reassess your needs and pause or reduce the frequency of sessions. 

My approach is humanistic, collaborative, and warm, while also drawing on evidence-based practices. Depending on your needs and goals, I might guide you through deep self-inquiry to develop a greater understanding and appreciation for yourself. I might suggest EMDR to help you heal from past experiences that are holding you back from reaching your full potential. I might draw on my expertise as a trained sex therapist to help you increase your capacity for pleasure, intimacy, and connection. I will also likely integrate mindfulness and embodiment practices into your healing journey.

Couples Therapy

175$/session
Insurances accepted: Cigna, United, Aetna, Optum, Oscar

Do you feel like you and your partner are having the same argument over and over again?

Are you feeling disconnected from your partner or insecure in the relationship? 

Are you experiencing waning chemistry or struggling with mismatched desires? 

Couples Therapy can help you and your partner heal relationship wounds, reconnect, and grow together. I use an evidence-based approach called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), which draws on attachment theory and the science of emotions. I will guide you in restoring your emotional connection and help you uncover what unmet needs lie beneath the hurt, anger, and resentment. I will also likely draw on my extensive training as a sex therapist.  

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
 

EMDR is an evidenced-based therapy technique that helps clients heal from traumatic or emotionally distressing experiences. When we experience something that is overwhelming to our nervous system, our brain struggles to process the event. As a result, the memory can get stuck in our body and mind, attached with disturbing images, emotions, body sensations, and negative beliefs about ourselves. EMDR stimulates the brain's natural healing system, allowing the memory to get "unstuck" and be processed adaptively, relegating it to its rightful place – the past.

During an EMDR session, your therapist will guide you to think about a traumatic experience while applying bilateral stimulation. Unlike other therapies, talking is not required for the therapy to be effective. You can share as much or as little as you want about the memory.  Additionally, EMDR is often much faster acting than traditional talk therapy. 

EMDR isn't just for trauma. EMDR can also be used to treat:

  • Anxiety, panic attacks, and phobias​

  • Chronic Illness and medical issues

  • Depression and bipolar disorders

  • Eating disorders

  • Grief and loss

  • ​Obsessive Compulsive Disorders 

  • Pain

  • Performance anxiety

  • Sexual assault

  • Sleep Disturbance

What is Sex Therapy? 

Sex therapy focuses on helping individuals and couples address sexual issues and increase their capacity for pleasure, intimacy, and connection. Sexuality is a core part of who we are and yet, it is often ridden with shame, guilt, and negativity in our society. My goal is to help you understand, heal, and navigate the vast complexity of your sexual self. 

Typically, sessions are comprised of talk therapy, psychoeducation, and embodied or somatic interventions. I also often incorporate EMDR when addressing sexual issues that involve trauma, pain, shame, or fear. 

Sex Therapy can help with: 

  • ​Low desire 

  • Arousal and orgasm difficulties

  • Pain during sex 

  • Performance and satisfaction issues

  • Sexual trauma

  • Anxiety and shame related to sex

  • Gender identity and/or sexual orientation

  • Issues pertaining to asexuality

  • ​Erotic exploration

  • Polyamorous relationships

  • Kink and BDSM

  • Infidelity and affairs

  • Mismatched sexual desire between partners

  • Out of control sexual behavior

Healing from Sexual Trauma

 

The first step of healing sexual trauma is surviving it. Common survival strategies include avoiding sex, avoiding feelings, dissociation, and numbing out with alcohol, drugs, and/ or compulsive sexual activity. However you’ve been surviving your trauma up until now is okay! My goal is to help you move from surviving to thriving so that you can reclaim your right to sexual pleasure and enjoyment. 

When working with clients to heal sexual trauma, I combine approaches from trauma-informed therapy with approaches from sex therapy. We will focus not only on addressing symptoms of PTSD, but also on helping you to become more in touch with your body's wants and needs and experience your erotic self.
