**I am currently not accepting new clients** You look around and ask yourself “Is this really my life right now?” Some days are okay, some are uncomfortable, and others are intolerable. In the tough moments, the things you've tried before don't seem to work. Maybe someone you cared about died. Maybe that inner critic voice is louder or more persistent than it has been before. Maybe your child’s behaviors have drained your patience and understanding. Treading water was fine for a while, but you’re ready to swim.

There is immense pressure on mothers in our culture today- causing them to feel isolated with more anxiety, stress and feelings of never being “enough”. There is a gaping hole in our system when it comes to care for women who are trying to conceive, who are suffering from trauma related to birth and infant loss, as well as those with postpartum depression, anxiety and other disorders. I also work with individuals, couples and families that are facing a variety of issues.

As a sex therapist, I specialize in treating sexual issues. These often include relationship challenges and sexual problems such as lack of desire/low libido, difficulty with arousal, premature ejaculation and trouble reaching orgasm. Anxiety about sexual performance, lost intimacy, sexual abuse, infidelity, menopause, illness and aging can also interfere with sexual satisfaction. Sex therapy addresses problematic or illegal sexual behaviors, sexual compulsivity, paraphilias and fetishes. Clients benefit from exploring issues surrounding sexual orientation, gender identity, asexuality, polyamory and kink. I am passionate about helping clients overcome the issues that affect their sexuality so that they more fully enjoy life.

It seems your “colored glasses” are tinted dark with a tinge of black. “You’re not good enough.” The voices of self-doubt are winning out. “If only you were...” swirls in your head after presenting at work, taking a hard test, or spending time with a social group. There’s a loss of motivation to do the things that you did before. It might be that retreating to your couch is the only thing that sounds of any interest to you lately. It’s exhausting to summon the effort it takes to continue forward. To make matters worse, people are starting to be put off by your glass-half-empty mood at a time when you need them to give you a break.

Terrible thoughts of worry and shame attack you around the clock. Worrying about things you should have done or said keeps your mind racing through the night. Tidal waves of stress strangle your focus and keep you from achieving any meaningful progress, anywhere in your life. These troubling thoughts are villains that moved into your mind without permission and have become the worst roommates ever. They’ve taken over your life and head space. Everything feels out of control. Hope is nowhere to be found. Paralyzed, without direction or purpose, just getting out of bed feels like an accomplishment. This is becoming your new normal.
