As a therapist who understands sexual diversity I help men who experience shame surrounding sexuality to explore their sexual identities to create healthy relationships and sexuality.

My Work in Men's Therapy

For many men, beginning to discuss elements of our sexuality can be challenging – I hope to create a space for clients that is open, compassionate, and direct. Most of us do not grow up given the tools we need to cultivate healthy relationships and sexuality, my goal is to help you explore your own values, beliefs, and feelings surrounding sex and further understand your own desires.

I seek to collaborate with clients through learning the individual and relational experiences that inform their lives and goals for therapy. I work to create a therapeutic alliance through an empathic yet direct, non-judgmental approach. Overall, I hope to help you explore your relationship dynamics, patterns of behavior, and emotions and help you work through the places you feel “stuck”. Together, we co-create goals that feel like the best fit for you. I have my masters in couples and family therapy with a specialization in sex therapy. I have a certification in somatic psycho-therapy and am currently going through Gottman Method training for couples.  I integrate mind-body connection as well as mindfulness practices into my philosophy of therapy. My approach is trauma-informed, and meets the client where they are at.

Growing up in the South, I had very little access to sexuality and healthy relationships education. I got involved in the sexual health field because I believe education moves us towards empowerment. We can make empowered decisions when we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and have the tools to process, explore, and express who we are.

I have worked with individual, couple, and family systems in a range of communities.

Some areas I focus on are:

  • kink/BDSM
  • out-of-control sexual behavior
  • sexual desire and intimacy
  • sexual functioning
  • sexual trauma
  • LGBTQ+ topics (gender dysphoria, “coming out”, queer relationships)
  • Non-monogamous relationships
  • Shame
  • Anxiety

About Me

I am originally from right outside Atlanta, Georgia. I pursued psychology and womens, gender, and sexuality studies in my undergraduate studies at Georgia State University where I began internships in the sexual health and mental health fields. I then taught sexuality education to teens before pursuing my masters in couples and family therapy at Thomas Jefferson University. I have recently moved to Denver from Philadelphia and deeply enjoy the change in scenery. In my free time, I like to rock climb, hike, hang out with my dog (Lola), and explore Colorado.
