I specialize in couples therapy and sex therapy for both couples and individuals. I help people reconnect, restore intimacy and work through challenging situations such as infidelity, problematic sexual behavior or creating healthy sexual experiences after sexual trauma. My dual approach and training in both couples and sex therapy offers a superior result that not all couples therapists offer. As a therapist trained in family systems and sex therapy, I offer what is truly required, both individually and together, in order for couples to improve their relationships.
I am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and a Master’s of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Edgewood College.
Is your sex painful, anxious, or disappointing? Have you suffered sexual trauma in your past that effects your ability to enjoy sex now? Do you question your sexual behaviors, preferences or identity? Is sex creating a problem in your life? Has your body changed in its sexual response due to age or health matters?
I can help.
Are you or your partner hurt or upset because one of you wants sex more than the other? Has sex become so disappointing that is avoided altogether? Do you struggle to talk about sex and your relationship in a productive manner? Is an intimate connection missing from your relationship? Do you wonder if it is time to end this relationship?
Change is possible.
For those couples who are seriously contemplating divorce, I am trained in Divorce Discernment Counseling, a specific approach to therapy differing from traditional couples counseling. Divorce Discernment Counseling follows a specific protocol that allows for the couple to make this important decision in one to five sessions. It is most appropriate for couples where one is leaning toward divorce while the other has hopes of repairing the relationship. I will meet with you as a couple and individually in each session, as it's important to see where each of you are starting from and how you are progressing in this process. The goal is not to solve problems in the marriage, but to identify them and see if there are possible solutions. Learn more about Divorce Discernment Counseling here.
