Welcome to my official website.

Whether you are here because you are seeking support, professional connection, or just curious, please take some time to look around!

ABOUT ME

I am a certified sex therapist and sex therapy supervisor, licensed social worker, author, TEDx speaker, educator, and veteran. I have a Ph.D. in Human Sexuality, Master of Clinical Social Work, and Master of Organizational Communication.

As a therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and other relationship structures to address concerns that inhibit future growth and happiness.

I offer group therapy for those that find working and learning with others beneficial. I am committed to ensuring all clients have a positive and affirming experience. My specialties include fertility/infertility, infidelity recovery, intimacy skills, men’s therapy/sexuality, gender concerns, life transitions, and premarital counseling.

I have travelled around the world working with straight, LGBTQ+, nonbinary, and others across cultures which has given me a wonderful understanding of the importance of culture and the uniqueness every client brings to my office.

I am currently licensed in Massachusetts and Maine.

Whether you are looking for clinical supervision to achieve licensure, striving to become a certified AASECT sex therapist, counselor, or supervisor or realizing that ongoing clinical supervision is key to your practice success, I offer one-on-one and group supervision models to help you achieve your goals.

Supervision is interactive and goal driven, balanced between cases review and didactic learning.

I offer business and practice management consulting.

As an organizational development professional for more than 30 years, I bring small, medium, and large business experience to help grow teams/groups and develop culture for profit/non-profit organizations. Being able to set goals, grow teams, and develop rewarding environments requires strategy and effective communication.

Let’s grow your organization together!
