Starting therapy takes courage. It can feel like a leap of faith to unveil the most vulnerable parts of your life to someone you have just met and trust that you will receive the help that you need. I keep this in mind and approach your therapy with the upmost respect. My approach is warm and nonjudgmental, and my top priority is to ensure I am attuned to your needs and feelings in the moment.
Alive Intimacy specializes in sex therapy for both individuals and couples, and couples therapy. Because humans are complex, no one issue exists in isolation. Couples or sex therapy often involves addressing other inter-related issues, such as depression, trauma, anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), mood disorders, personality disorders, and addiction. I have experience and training in each of these areas and will incorporate applicable treatment approaches as needed.

As part of the courageous and rewarding journey of therapy, I’ll be asking you to take an honest look at yourself and your situation, explore difficult questions, and follow through with changes. It’s important to remember that therapy is not a magic wand. It can be transformational, only if you let it.
Come ready to engage, explore, and collaborate with me, and I will do my best to help you each step of the way. My aim is for you to feel that you have achieved your goals in therapy, whether than means addressing relationship issues, healing trauma, improving intimacy, managing depression or other mental health conditions, feeling happier and more fulfilled, or anything else.
Remember to keep an open mind – success often looks different than you initially expect.
