Do you need to speak with someone who understands your issues?
As a relationship specialist and LGBTQIA affirmative sex therapist, I am devoted to helping you navigate challenges relating to self worth and fostering healthy relationships. I have worked with gay and lesbian clients for over a decade, am inclusive of sexual and gender diversity, and have the knowledge and passion to work with individuals and couples in this community. I have a particular specialty working with lesbians, at the individual and couples level.
How Therapy Can Help
Therapy can be instrumental in helping you transcend obstacles and develop new pathways for personal success and love. I have extensive experience helping GLBTQ clients find greater fulfillment and meaning in their lives and in their romantic relationships. I am particularly adept at helping you work through obstacles related to internalized shame, self worth, relationship blocks, sexuality and identity, and personal growth and development.
