I belong to...
You know a lot about a person by the type of associations they belong to or people they hang out with. So I think it is important for you to know what associations I am a part of.

Couples and Individuals (LGBTQQIA+ welcome and Poly friendly)
Couples who are dealing with one partner (or both) having out of control sexual behavior
Sexual concerns such as:
Medical community: As you care for others, my job will be caring for you and your relationships. I have several years of experience as a chaplain working in a hospital alongside a medical team, so I understand the pressures you face on a daily basis and the effects these have on family dynamics. I realize it is important to find a place where you are seen as just yourself and not as a doctor, nurse, etc. If that is something you are looking for, then I am here to help!
Other Therapists: I recognize that being a therapist and finding a therapist for yourself can be challenging. As we know, therapists need support in examining their own lives, stories, and trauma not only to enhance their lives, but their clinical work as well. I have extensive experience working with therapists for individual and couples therapy. My goal is always to facilitate an environment where you feel held and seen.
Supervision and Consultation: I love supervising and consulting on cases. I find working with other therapists on how to strengthen their craft to be something deeply rewarding.
I love talking in front of people and sharing with others. I have spoken at the University of Washington Multiple Sclerosis Center about sexuality and disability and have spoken at adult living facilities concerning sex education. I have also spoken at many faith communities around issues of marriage, communication, and parenting. If you would like me to come speak at your location, please feel free to contact me.
