Practice Description:

Hi there! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Sex Positive Therapist in Austin, Texas. In addition to being fully licensed, I am also a Kink Knowledgable Therapist. Visit www.respark.co for more information or call me for a free phone consultation.

Some of my clients see me because they are dealing with issues not related to their kinks or lifestyle and others come to see me because of issues directly related. They are all seeking a therapist who is both knowledgeable and experienced.

 

Perhaps you want to explore your own sexuality, or maybe it's your partner that has inclinations and/or you're not sure how to navigate it. Most clients find therapy helpful in creating meaningful progress. 

 

Areas of knowledge and experience: Ethical Non-monogamy, Monogamy, Open Relationships, Polyamory, BDSM, Swinging, LGBTQIA, Kink, and Fetishes.

 

*Fully Licensed *All Inclusive * Confidential 

 

I'll provide an open, nonjudgmental environment where clients can explore and grow in their relationships and sexuality through talk-based therapy.

Practice Description:

 

I believe that your decision to seek therapy is a sign of strength, courage, and respect for your personal and relationship well-being. Congratulations on taking the first, and often hardest, step. Identifying a therapist that you are comfortable with is also a critical step toward facilitating the changes that you desire. My approach is to support, motivate, and reduce shame. I have a collaborative and active style in therapy.  I am Certified as a Sex Therapist with the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT). I am experienced in kink/fetish issues and sensitive to the diverse expressions of gender, sexuality, and lifestyles that individuals may bring.  I will provide you with things to work on between appointments to actively move you toward the changes you desire for yourself and your relationship.

I have personal experience in alternative lifestyles and have counseled clients in the BDSM and poly circles for many years. I know how tough it is to navigate life, growth, emotional well-being, and relationships without being stigmatized or pathologized on top of it for one's sexuality and chosen lifestyle.

Practice Description: In my counseling, I always accept people for where they are at and work with them to meet their goals.  I believe that people are self-actualizing and given some encouragement and nurturing, they grow on their own.  I am very open-minded and inclusive.  I believe that our sex, our sexuality and our gender should come from our own organic desires.  These areas consume a small amount of our overall energy, but they are often huge aspects of our lives, and this includes relationship development.  One of the most important things I help people with is finding peace and working through conflict.  Our relationships with others is important, but also so is the one with our self.  They are both rooted in our mindfulness and presence.  Whatever you have got to work on, I am happy to help, however I can!

Practice Description:

30 years of experience in alternative lifestyles, an author of articles and chapters in books on a variety of psychology and lifestyle topics, and a certification in hypnotherapy, personally trained by one of the top names in hypnosis.

Your kink won't even raise my eyebrows. I'm not shockable. I've helped people with orgasm problems, gender issues, gag reflex, relationship problems, overcoming sexual abuse, dissociation, and a host of other things they didn't feel safe discussing with traditional therapists. Nobody can guarantee outcomes, but you must start with someone who can listen to you without judging.

I have studied Dave Elman, Milton Erickson, Charles Tebbetts, Richard Nongard, Melissa Tiers, Igor Ledochovsky, and a host of other leading names in hypnotherapy, and then synthesized my own techniques out of the best of the best. I call it Reconfiguring your Human Settings. Together we can find solutions to the issues that are holding you back.

Practice Description:
My expertise is sex therapy and couples therapy. I am passionately committed to empowering clients and challenging them to create the satisfying relationships and healthy families as they embrace their sexuality. I work with men, women, and couples at different developmental states with equal ease, using my clinical insight, deeply positive attitude, and authentically supportive approach. For years I have taught my graduate students the importance of a genuinely non-judgmental attitude when treating sexual issues. Knowledge of the wide range of sexual expression and variations is important, too. I am pleased to provide this attitude and knowledge to all my clients.
Sex involves more than friction—it involves the ideas, assumptions, and expectations of two people who may not really understand each other. I approach patients with a sensitivity to the ways in which their unique biography shapes their ability to communicate their experience, and to appreciate the communication of others.
