mental clarity space
It can be daunting to come to someones office and divulge all of your issues and uncover your pain. So I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself and hopefully give you a sense of who I am. It is helpful to feel like you are a good fit with your therapist and it makes the process of therapy less intimidating.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Nevada and California. I have also been licensed in Florida. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. I have been afforded the opportunity to move to different states around the country which has given me a depth and breadth of exposure to a variety of therapeutic issues.
I am a Certified Sex Therapist with AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists). Sexual issues range anywhere from performance, satisfaction, orgasm, arousal, desire, kink, to pain and anything in between. Sexual issues within relationships may involve sexual communication, creating healthy sex plans, or out of control sexual behavior. Sex may sometimes be an uncomfortable topic, but in a safe, open-minded, non-judgmental space, sexual issues can be discussed and worked through.
For over a decade, I have worked with different relationships and individuals of all ages who sought help to tackle the difficulties in their lives. By working together, most of my clients have found the direction in life that they prefer and desire for themselves. I believe in every individual’s ability to live the lives they see for themselves and I believe that couples and families can overcome difficulties, heal pain, and successfully navigate through their relationships. I have worked in private practice and outpatient community agencies helping children, adolescents and their families and adult individuals and couples with a variety of relational issues.
With my help, we can travel through a therapeutic journey of discovery, healing, and solutions and work towards that life you desire. My experience has provided me with an understanding of relationships, interactions, and behaviors. Therapy is not a one size fits all deal; therefore, I welcome your uniqueness and I hope to use that in a therapeutic journey that fits YOU!
