I am a Marriage & Family Therapist Registered Intern (#IMF67572) employed by and supervised under Dr. Winston Wilde.  I am also in the process of accruing hours towards my Sex Therapy Certification from the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT).  My specialties include sex therapy, therapy with the LGBT population, couples therapy, and therapy with individuals striving for a more fulfilling life.  My mission is to provide an atmosphere that is safe, understanding, nonjudgmental, sex positive, and culturally aware.
