Relationships can be hard. Not all of the time; but maybe, lately, it has felt like an uphill battle.
Whether you are considering marriage or have been together for over ten years, it may help to have a clean slate. A fresh start. A new perspective on what is going on beneath the surface of your relationship. I’d like to create a space for you (and your partner) to explore those big questions.
Personally, I became a therapist after learning of the term “vaginismus,” a condition of pain during sex for women. Diving further into sexuality and relationship studies, I found a love and compassion for working with couples who find that they lack intimacy, want to enjoy more of it, or simply don’t know how to begin the process of actually connecting. Believe it or not (I’ll believe in you until you do), you can do something to make a change. You might already be doing that thing, or maybe you just need to reverse some ways of thinking. Let’s find what works and make more meaning out of life.
EducationAfter attending the University of Georgia and graduating with a mixed major focusing on human development/family sciences and advertising, I pursued my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy at Lee University in Cleveland, TN. During this time, my focus was largely on the integration of attachment theory, cultural sensitivity, and sex therapy into the therapeutic experience. I am working towards certification as a sex therapist. Are you ready? Should we partner together in helping you (and your significant other) explore options for the future, you can expect a calming – but real – environment. We will not probe areas that you are not ready to address; however, I will encourage you to take risks, embrace vulnerability, and begin speaking the words that are hardest to say. Expect also to laugh, engage in candid truths, and work on building a more hopeful future. If any of my following specialty areas resonate with you, let’s meet to discover what comes next:
- Wanting more confidence
- Sexual Psychoeducation
- Sexual trauma
- Feeling stuck / needing to make a big decision
- Interracial/multiracial relationships
- Increasing sexual enjoyment
