Individual Counseling

In individual counseling, I employ narrative therapy techniques to explore the whole story you have created up until now. With my help, I hope to uncover the conflicting narratives you have playing on repeat and help you question the internal critics that keep you on the path of anxiety, depression, isolation, or confusion. By analyzing and reflecting on your narratives and language together, I aim to give you back the power to shape your own life authentically. In this process, I am not the expert. You are. You are the only person on this earth who has ever experienced your life. My job is to listen, reflect, and create the space for you to grow via deep thinking and exploration. In this space, you will be free to craft an authentic story that allows you to reach your full potential. 

EMDR Counseling

I offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) counseling to complement our individual therapy techniques. EMDR counseling targets unprocessed emotions and details from traumatic past events, often initially experienced as feelings of being stuck. When we experience trauma, we often fail to conceptualize and feel what happened fully. This is the brain's way of protecting itself. It is known as "dissociation." EMDR counseling allows us to work through this dissociation and safely come to terms with your trauma. 
EMDR counseling begins by determining what troubling memory or unresolved trauma you want to address, then using Bilateral Stimulation (BLS) to initiate your reprocessing of it. BLS works by moving your eyes rapidly back and forth, mimicking Rapid Eye Movement (REM) sleep. Gradually, you will begin to unpack the event while maintaining your internal peace. 
EMDR counseling is radically different from other modalities. It is much more formalized, with 8 distinct phases to be completed in succession. It employs set scripts to be performed in sequence. Despite this rigidity, I have found the outcomes and insights that surface from EMDR counseling to be a natural complement to Narrative therapy. 
Please note that I offer EMDR counseling as a secondary provider; I work with other practices to complement their counseling with EMDR techniques. That means you do not have to stop seeing your primary counselor to see me for EMDR counseling.

Areas of specialty

Sex Counseling

If you:

  • Fear you will never enjoy a satisfying sex life
  • Are you discontent with the sex you are having in your relationship
  • Struggle to communicate effectively about sex with your partner
  • Find that sex doesn’t feel the same way it used to 
  • Feel inexperienced when it comes to sex
  • Experience sex as painful, stressful, or anxiety-provoking

I have a message for you–you are not alone, and things will improve. Sex Therapy is specifically designed to help people work through these common issues and develop healthier, more satisfying relationships to physical intimacy.

Cody structures its care around three core principles.

Sex and its associated challenges are a normal part of life. There are always underlying reasons for your problems, and it’s just a matter of discovering what they are. Sexual performance can be impacted by age, health, relationship dynamics, psychological hangups, and just the stresses of daily life. Some factors can be adjusted, and others can only be managed. Regardless of your circumstances, we will create the best possible sex life for you.

Sex and intimacy are an essential component of a fulfilling life. We do this work because we beeve that it’s necessary. When people struggle with their sex life, they suffer. We are committed to helping you work through your sex issues so you can lead a more pleasurable, joyous, and connected life.

Sex positivity and inclusivity are prerequisites to effective care. I am open to all sexual orientations, identities, and relationships, so long as they are consensual and non-exploitative. This openness creates an ideal environment for healing, regardless of your background.

What Can I Do For You?

I have successfully helped clients navigate a variety of complex issues, including loss of libido, sexual addiction, erectile dysfunction, vaginismus, difficulty orgasming, and interpersonal conflicts over sexual values and behaviors. I’ve also helped clients who were simply seeking a more satisfying sex life

Sex therapy is proven to help with:

Improving Sexual health
Resolving resentment
Building self esteem
Healing from Trauma
Exploring and affirming new sexual, relationship, and gender identities 

What Exactly is Sex Therapy?

Sex therapy provides a safe, guided space for you to heal, improve your communication, and expand your horizons when it comes to intimacy. Through our work, we aim to identify and overcome barriers that hinder your ability to lead an active and fulfilling sex life.

Sex therapy is a flexible practice and varies in duration. Sometimes, we can find a meaningful resolution to your issues after a single session. Other times, it takes significant commitment over months or years of work. We typically assign homework to build and reinforce new habits and beliefs as part of the therapy.


What does LGBTQIA mean? It’s an abbreviation for Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Queer, and In Question. While a person’s sexual or romantic orientation may not be a source of discomfort, those who identify as LGBTQIA or any other orientation may prefer to see a counselor who understands this area.

Counseling in the LGBTQI Community

You may be seeking therapy, which has nothing to do with your sexual or gender identity. Your struggles are no different from those of other sexual or gender-identifying people. Yet, at the same time, I do not ignore it.

Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, or relationship issues, contemplating coming out to friends and family, or questioning your identity, my office is a place that is non-judgmental and comfortable for you to express your emotions and who you are.

I aim to support you in counseling as you discover your authentic self and explore what that means. In our work, we may investigate and understand long-standing patterns, beliefs, and behaviors holding you back. We will work towards helping you find a sense of peace, confidence, and balance, allowing you to live your life to the fullest.

Areas of possible struggling

Fear. Are you coming out for the first time? Or maybe you came out many years ago, started a new job, and fear coming out to your co-workers. Through counseling, we can work through your anxiety about the reaction of friends, co-workers, and family members to your identity. We may work towards identifying your emotions and understanding where they come from to help you become more resilient to the judgment that others may have. Some relationships may end. I can help you become more confident in dealing with your loved ones in a way that may help you build better relationships with them.

Discomfort. You may have been brought up in a religious home, and you conflict with your personal feelings, sexual identity, and your spiritual beliefs. Maybe you have witnessed or directly experienced discrimination related to your identity. This struggle can bring out emotions of discomfort that you do not know how to manage.

Low view of self. We often use the term “self-esteem” to express our views. Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself. This includes your thoughts and beliefs about yourself and your opinions about who you are. Low self-esteem can lead to negative beliefs about yourself. They tend to be self-critical, self-blaming, and self-doubting. Low self-esteem can also lead to depression, anxiety, low body image, ruminating in negative thoughts, feelings of unworthiness, isolation, and critical of yourself.

The struggle with low self-esteem doesn’t have to feel paralyzing. Together, we can find ways to feel better about ourselves — to become happy with ourselves. We will work to understand where the negative thoughts may come from and provide you with skills that allow you to view yourself in a more positive light.

Why counseling?

We all deserve to feel valued and successful. Fulfillment is not created for us, but we make it ourselves. Finding ways to feel authentic without fear, shame, guilt, or doubt allows you to feel fulfilled. We often put off taking care of ourselves because other aspects of our lives get in the way. Understanding the importance and the necessity of self-care and taking the time to be kind to yourself can allow you to see through the negativity that hinders progression.

Counseling can be an exploratory and transformative time to begin looking deeper for answers and perspectives. It can also be a place to find solutions to challenges.
