My Approach

As a Doctor of Human Sexuality (DHS) with certifications in Somatic Sex Education (CSB), Massage Therapy (CMT), Sex Education, Sex Coaching, Bondassage™, The Gottman Method Couple’s Therapy Level 1 and Restorative Justice Practices, I offer somatic sexuality education, consulting, and coaching for individuals, couples and groups.

I am not a psychotherapist or licensed counselor, rather I am a highly trained and experienced sexologist using modalities rooted in somatic methods that have proven successful for individuals, couples, and groups.

My work as a Sex Educator & Clinical Sexologist is a specialty practice that deals with issues specifically around sexuality from a sex-positive, non-judgmental and shame-free paradigm of healing.

If a client has concerns that are outside my scope of practice I will suggest they see someone within my network of allied professionals.

If you are unsure of what is and is not within my scope of practice please do not hesitate to contact me for more information.  As there are many wonderful specialists in the Bay Area my goal is that you work with the appropriate one for you.
