I've been working in the behavioral health field since 1994. I have experience in working with a wide range of problems with couples, men & women. My expert focus is in atypical sexual expressions and emerging definitions of healthy sexuality. Professional & personal coaching services are unique compared to most practicing professionals in that it incorporates various mainstream clinical best practices with depth psychological approaches to understanding conscious & unconscious forces contributing to long held & frustrating patterns.
I am a professional coach, trainer, psychotherapist, and educator who specializes in emerging definitions of healthy sexuality which include kink; bondage, discipline, sadomasochism (BDSM); and other non-traditional relationship dynamics. I emphasize clear theoretical and applied understanding of the difference between intimate partner abuse (domestic violence) and consensual kink & BDSM.
I'm honored by my clients' ability to trust me in helping them work through intimate challenges they've never shared before. I am open, affirming and support clients in defining and implementing definitions of healthy sex and sexual expressions. Find out more at CapitalCounselingServices.com.
