An interest in positive sexual health and women has grown out of the clinical work I've done in varying agencies. In addressing issues of self-esteem, poor communication practices, relationship choices, negative emotional self-regulation, and inappropriate family roles/rules, I discovered the benefits positive sexual health and communication can have on the construction of an empowered self-identity.

While I do not believe that sexuality is everything, I do ascribe to the idea that sexuality is a very important part to our development, especially when examining gender roles, family communication, and cultural scripts. As an emotion-focused experiential family therapist, I have a tremendous amount of interest in the experiences people have, the feelings that are derived from those experiences, the meaning that they assign to them, and the ultimate reshaping process into a positive change that can occur. This has prompted me to do further research from this framework about the counseling implications for victims of sex trafficking, individuals and couples grappling with infertility, sexual health for women of color, and ethical counseling considerations.
