My therapy approach emphasizes the importance of pleasure and understanding of how our past experiences impact our present relationships and barriers to fulfilling intimacy.
I graduated from Naropa University with a Master’s Degree in Contemplative Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology. I am currently working on my Ph.D. in Human Sexuality at The California Institute of Integral Studies. My therapy practice remains in Colorado.
I currently provide culturally sensitive, sex-positive therapy to individuals and couples in Denver and Boulder Colorado. My practice is built on the fundamental belief that sexual liberation is an issue of both social justice and mental health. Sexuality runs so deeply through every area of a person’s life. Understanding one’s sexuality and owning it, giving it permission to fully express itself, leads to a more pleasurable, assertive, fulfilling life.
At the first session, I will gather initial information about the concerns that have led you to seek therapy. If I do not feel I can meet your clinical needs or there is a conflict of interest, I will provide you with referral information for alternate services or therapists.
Sessions take place in my office, over the phone, or on Zoom.
Payment is due at the time of your appointment. I accept credit cards, cash, or checks.
50-minute individual session: $150
80-minute couples session: $200
*Some limited sliding scale availability for students and sex-workers.
I am an out-of-network provider for all insurance companies, meaning your insurance company may reimburse you after-the-fact for a portion of your counseling fees. I’m happy to provide billing statements for you to submit to your insurer, though you are ultimately responsible for payment of the therapy session at the time of the session.
