Sexuality is not a leisure or part time activity. It’s a way of being.
— Alexander Lowen


I'm a professor, sex therapist + feminist rock star.  I teach psychology full time at Montgomery College, and have a home office in Gaithersburg, MD where I see clients part time. 

I've been a psychotherapist for nearly 20 years and I have a Master's Degree in Forensic Psychology and a PhD in General Psychology. My post graduate training has been focused on trauma, mindfulness, and body centered psychotherapy.  My work with clients is further influenced by attachment theories, feminism + equality, and research (I'm a science geek!).  All of the above training is integrated with cognitive-behavioral and solution focused approaches to treating sexual disorders. 

 I am an AASECT certified sex therapist and use a sex-positive approach that is focused on sexual health. I work with straight, gay, lesbian, and bisexual individuals and couples of any lifestyle. I also work with trans folks, and people who identify as gender queer, or who are non- binary.
