Sex Therapy. Sex therapy is an excellent resource for partners or individuals who are struggling with some aspect of their sexual lives. Some topics that can be addressed in sex therapy include experiences of infidelity, the impacts of fertility on sexuality, desire discrepancy and low libido, healing from sexual trauma, communicating about desires and fantasies, opening up a relationship/ navigating non-monogamy, or simply wanting to revitalize your sex life in a long-term relationship.
EMDR. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a structured, evidence-based approach to healing from trauma, anxiety, grief, or other difficult experiences. Many individuals who have either found talk-therapy to be minimally effective or have hit a wall in their therapeutic progress have found EMDR to help catalyze their healing process by working directly with the impacts of trauma on the body and mental functioning. EMDR combines elements of multiple evidence-based approaches into structured protocols that are designed to maximize treatment effects by targeting specific triggers. For more information about EMDR, please visit the EMDR International Association.
Couples/Relationship Therapy. Often, partners reach points in their relationship where they get stuck, feel disconnected, or have a hard time finding solutions to problems as a team. Relationship therapy can assist the family in accessing their strengths and resources, improving communication, and fostering trust and intimacy. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I have extensive training in treating relationship issues. I am a CNM/Polyamory affirming provider.
