Announcement icon I am glad to provide virtual counseling during this difficult time. Please provide email and phone number when you write. Take good care.
I offer present- and future-oriented sexuality counseling and educational information tailored to individuals with sexual concerns in a confidential and non-judgmental environment which is designed to empower the client and not the problem. I also provide appropriate external resources while enhancing the internal resources the client already has to deal with their sexual concerns. Because of the centrality of sexual experience, this type of work can be transformational in many aspects of a client's life and not just their sexuality. I work as an equal and collaborative partner and am supportive and empathic.
I am a clinical sexologist and sexuality educator. Sexology is the systematic, multi-disciplinary study of *ALL* human sexual behaviors - conventional and unconventional - and how people feel about them. Active member of many professional organizations including the Consortium on Sexuality and Aging at Widener University where I'm on the Board of Directors.
Multi-faceted background: As a reproductive biologist, I worked at Harvard Medical School for 25 years where I was Associate Professor (Urology) at Brigham and Women's Hospital. Years later, I obtained another doctorate in sexuality education and sexual behavior. Currently, I counsel clients of all ages (in person or Skype), lecture widely, and write.
