Coming to the realization that you want to pursue therapy can be a long and arduous journey, especially if it involve any aspect of your sexuality. I am sure you have experienced this in one way or another, but it is hard work living in our society today. Sex negativity is rampant throughout all forms of media. From the slight jabs you notice on your favorite television show, to the blatant disrespect you see on social media, the seeds of uneasiness and shame can become planted and all it takes are a few drops of water to have it spread throughout your body. The good news: I am here to help!
In individual therapy, we will work to explore these feelings. You are not alone in this journey. As your therapist, I will work to create a safe, non-judgmental environment for you to express your true, authentic self. I take a feminist approach and incorporate aspects of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Solution-Focused Counseling to help my clients. We will work together to identify aspects of your life that you would like to change, set individualized goals, and work towards the future you see for yourself. I am here to help you with your concerns over your sexual identity, sexual dysfunctions, and overall sexual health.
Therapy can get uncomfortable at times, especially when we are talking about sex. I encourage you to have an open mind when starting this process. People seek therapy for a variety of reasons and at all stages of their life. One of the biggest misconceptions is that you have to have a mental health diagnosis to seek help. While this is true for some people, it may not be true for you, and I do not want it to be a deterrent. Whether we meet for a few sessions or we stick together for years, it is my job to be that objective figure who helps you achieve a life that is authentic and fulfilling.
