About

"The Road to Healing Begins Here"


I am a nationally certified sex therapist through the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists. AASECT requires a rigorous process of continued education and demonstrated competency in the field of sexuality.

I have chosen to specialize in the areas of both sexuality and creativity because, while they are both what make us exquisitely alive, they can often be aspects of us that are confusing or fear-laden. I love the beautiful complexity that makes us human. I am delighted by watching people embrace and fall in love with the tender and courageous parts of themselves; I know I’ve done my job when my clients can craft and own their personal story in a way that’s meaningful to them.

Being in private practice for 18 years has been my passion, and in 2012 I founded the Wellness Collaborative, a center of integrative practitioners. I earned my PhD from Saybrook University in Integrative Health Psychology, and received my MSW from KU and my BA from Rockhurst University. I love to write, bake pie, travel and hike.

If you need a speaker for an event, I would love to help you out and can provide references.
