It is my goal to create an environment where you feel safe and comfortable while also appropriately challenged to grow. I work with both individuals and relationships.
All information discussed in sessions is held in strict confidence.
Where is the office located?
My office is located at 55 W Sierra Madre, Sierra Madre, Calif. 91024 in the historic Old Sierra Madre City Hall Building.
Are there other things I should know about your office?
Also, the front door is a “push” door (this information will be helpful to know.)
What’s in Sierra Madre?
Sierra Madre is a sleepy town just east of Pasadena with a large community of therapists. In addition to my office there are great restaurants and some amazing third-wave coffee houses. Syndicate Coffee is across the street from my office and is my go-to.
How do I pay?
Do you take insurance?
I am considered an out of network provider (ONP) on most PPO insurance plans.
I am happy to provide billing documentation for reimbursement from your insurance company. Bear in mind, coaching is generally not reimbursable by insurance companies.
Do you have a cancellation policy?
If you need to cancel, I ask that you give me 24hrs notice.
Sessions cancelled with less than 24hrs notice may be billed at our full session rate.
How long is each appointment? How often do we meet?
Sessions last 45-50 mins, generally. But I do also offer intensives and 90 min sessions by request.
I ask that clients commit to meeting weekly, at least for our first few months.
Do you offer video or phone sessions?
I work with folks in-person and over Zoom for Healthcare (a secure HIPAA compliant video conferencing platform.
If you’d prefer phone sessions, those are always a possibility as well.
How do I make an appointment?
Before scheduling an appointment, I offer a 20 min free consultation.
We will book our first session after our initial consultation. If you’d prefer to schedule an appointment directly, please email me at email@example.com or use the contact form below.

What age range do you work with?
What's sex therapy?
Sex is a type of talk therapy that focuses on growth in sex and sexuality. Working together, we will process emotions and relationships. I will also help to close any knowledge gaps that you may have when it comes to sex. (Many people haven’t gotten great sex education, surprising right?!).
People will often search out a sex therapist when they are experiencing issues related to sexual orientation, gender, sexual shame, erectile challenges, orgasmic difficulties, and sexual compulsivity (sometimes called ‘sex addiction’). Sex therapy does not involve touch.
What makes your approach to sex therapy different?
I take a very expansive stance with sex therapy. I go beyond solving problems. I want your sex life to (and all parts of you) to be vibrant! I believe that your religious and spiritual beliefs are an important part of you. I have extensive post-graduate training in clinical sexology and was mentored by some of the nation’s best sex therapists.
Since you’re a sex specialist, will you ask me to do anything weird in our appointment?
Don’t worry. I won’t ask you anything too weird. We will have conversations that help you to explore and may push you, however you are always in the drivers seat of what you share. I will always respect the limits you give me.
Do you only work with LGBT+ people or sex issues?
I offer both sex therapy and general psychotherapy. I have always had a good number of folks who reach out to me for therapy related to general issues and looking for help with spiritual/religious direction as well.
I’m not LGBT+ or a person of faith. Can I still work with you?
What is your approach to LGBT+ and queer issues?
What are the benefits of therapy?
The main benefit of therapy is to give you a space where you can grow, explore and learn. It’s so rare to have a relationship where the focus is you and your growth. This is what we create in therapy.
How soon will I see results?
Is it possible to get over intimacy issues and feel close again?
