Is the Aftermath of Abuse, Assault and Trauma interfering with your life including sexual problems?
Has Sex become something you avoid …a terrible reminder of the ways you were abused?
I am an experienced Sex Therapist and Licensed Clinical Social Worker who helps survivors of abuse, assault and trauma and their partners overcome PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and the negative consequences on their functioning including the intrusive effects on self esteem, relationships and sexuality.
As a clinical member of the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health (SASH), American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and the International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals (IITAP), I use specific trauma resolution tools such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to resolve PTSD symptoms. I am committed to continually enhancing my training and education in order to provide quality services to you.
Do you feel bad when you can’t function sexually the way you want to or think you should?
Is Sex pleasurable, intimate and fun? Or painful – something to endure?
The goal of sex therapy is to resolve sexual problems and sexual dysfunctions so you can enjoy the pleasure and satisfaction of healthy sexuality.
I help clients experience the joy of exploring and being sexual. We work together to help you feel good about yourself sexually and feel close to someone you care about.
Depressed? Anxious? Relationship Problems?
Are life’s challenges getting you down?
When your important relationships are not going well – marriage, partners, children, family – your whole world can feel bad.
In individual, couples and marriage counseling, I address difficulties that can reduce your quality of life including depression, anxiety, work, individual, couples and marriage problems.
I use specific psychotherapy strategies to help you resolve these issues, increase resilience and options and decrease depressed and anxious thinking that impair your ability to be who you want to be as a partner, parent, friend.
What does sex mean to you?
Sexuality can be confusing. Sex can mean so many things.
- Why do we feel the way we do and make the sexual choices we do?
- How do we stop ourselves from using sex destructively and hurting ourselves and the people we love?
- What do we do if someone we love is hurting us with their sexual behavior?
- Is sex about humiliation and shame?
- Or love, trust and openness?
Sometimes we need help…
- Sorting out who we are sexually.
- Identifying how to make changes so we can feel whole and integrated rather than disconnected and wounded.
- Getting through daily life with burdens and challenges that can feel overwhelming.
In my more than twenty years as a psychotherapist and sex therapist in the Madison Wisconsin area, I have dedicated myself to counseling and helping people live fuller healthier lives.
