I have had extensive experience working with, and teaching about, sexuality .
I have been in practice for more than 30 years, seeing adults, older adolescents and couples presenting with a range of issues. My clients deal with transitions in life, school, work and relationships; they may need healing from past abuse or current loss; they may be facing existential, identity or situational crises. I engage actively with my clients and am influenced by a social/feminist perspective, common sense and a good sense of humor.

By the time most couples come to my office, they're frustrated, discouraged, and tired of going in circles. Many think their problems are insurmountable, that they're beyond help. Very few couples are beyond help. If your relationship is in trouble, don't wait. And don't give up. I have been in practice for nearly 30 years, specializing in psychotherapy with couples. I bring extensive training in relationship dynamics, marital systems, and sex therapy . I use a collaborative, positive approach that makes sense of what's hard and offers tools and encouragement to even the most troubled relationship.

For three decades I have been privileged as a marriage and family therapist to make a difference in people's lives. Though I am most known for being a Jungian-oriented therapist and author, my training in pastoral counseling and spiritual direction, my experience in long-term psychodynamic treatment, and my long-standing interest in all the many forms and expressions of human sexuality , as an "out" gay therapist and activist, are areas of expertise that come together in my work to help clients find a way to be their deepest, healthiest and most authentic selves.

In addition, I am a sex therapist, focused on boundary development, pleasure, intimacy and desire.
During times of struggle, you have an absolute right to support from an attentive, warm, trustworthy witness - someone who believes in your strength and brilliance when you can no longer see it, and who stands by your side as you emerge as the architect of your own healing. My work and my passion is to be that witness. I entered into the field of mental health to uplift the experiences of those who often struggle to find responsive and attuned care. As a queer, biracial, Latinx therapist and advocate, I am wholly dedicated to opening a space with you through which you can experience repair, discovery, growth and transformation.

You would feel better about yourself your sexuality , and handle difficult situations.
As LGBTQ minorities, we often find ourselves living in anothers' world. It seems like we've tried everything but we don't feel like we belong or we are in a safe place to live or work. We often wonder... when is this going to get better? When can I just live my life fully how I am? Sometimes we feel sad and it can be a very lonely place. We can even forget just how special and unique we are because we are so different and surrounded by those who just "don't get it." We really want someone who can connect to us and make our experiences feel validated, reminding us that we are beautiful.

I bring to my private practice 36 years of experience and training in couple dynamics, attachment, sexuality and family systems. When couples first contact me, they have often been struggling with strained, stuck and reactive relationship patterns for a long time. They have hurt one another by attempting various ineffective solutions such as fighting-to-win, resentful compliance, disengagement, dulled sexual desire, infidelities, freezing in hopelessness. These are all an attempt to manage the anxiety and discomfort often inherent in long-term relationship challenges. Naturally, there is discouragement and worry.

I call this Mindful Loving and Sexuality , a psychospiritual approach that invites us to experience the love that's available at any moment in time.
I like to start by making a warm and heartfelt connection with you, supporting and accepting you just as you are. From there, we work to transform difficult struggles into opportunities for greater self-love and richer understanding. Our process is collaborative, with you being at choice every step of the way. I use a blend of innovative approaches that have helped many hundreds of individuals and couples manifest, grow, and savor the relationships and sexuality they desire.

The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives. Most of us didn't learn how to create fulfilling romantic relationships growing up. Conflict, distance, not knowing the way forward, these are all common struggles. Fortunately, in depth scientific research has revealed key relational skills that lead to fulfilling relationships. Ground breaking research into gender, sexuality , and eroticism has also revealed core skills that create fulfillment in the realm of eros. With these advanced skills, you can learn how to bring out the best in you and your partner.

I am currently a doctoral student in Human Sexuality with a research focus on trans/cis relationships, a sex educator endorsed by San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI), as well as Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
I provide sex -positive therapy to individuals, relationships, and adult families. Most of my clients have non-mainstream sexual, gender, and/or relationship identities. Many identify as non-monogamous, are considering opening or creatively designing their relationship(s); I help them to create agreements, move through jealousy, heal from infidelities, build trust, and improve communication with partners and metamours. I work with queer, transgender, and nonbinary clients just beginning to question and explore their identities, and those who have been out for years and need therapy from a clinician familiar with queer issues.

In sex therapy , I create a safe, sex -positive space to address concerns relating to sexual health and intimacy for couples and individuals (queer, ENM, & kink friendly).
These are really tough times, aren't they? Existing issues feel bigger and it can be that much harder to cope. Therapy can heIp. I approach therapy in a warm and collaborative manner to help couples, individuals, and families identify new and adaptive ways to deal with life's challenges. In couples therapy, I use Emotion-Focused and Gottman approaches to help partners learn to manage and repair conflict, rebuild trust and intimacy, and build emotional connections. In family treatment, I'll work with your family to develop adaptive and healthy communication patterns, as well as address parenting concerns and behavioral issues.

My goal is to help people make ho-hum sex good, and good sex great! I love working with couples looking to rekindle their fire or make it burn brighter, and also with individuals looking to deepen their understanding of their own sexuality and in turn become an even better lover and partner. Dating, foreplay, and exploration of fantasies are just a few exciting areas of my work. I have experience in helping clients develop confidence and skill in diverse types of sexual expression (for example, dominance and submission). love helping couples learn how to lovingly share their needs and desires.

Sex Therapy
Sex therapists in Berkeley offer help with sexual concerns by educating, using talk therapy, offering homework exercises and resources for further exploration to either individuals or couples. Sex therapy helps couples talk about sex with each other. A sex therapist feels comfortable talking about sex and is aware of how anxious you might feel talking about this intimate subject with each other and with a near-stranger. They will help set you at ease and guide you into talking about sex. While sex therapists can help with many problems, low sexual desire and frequency disagreements between partners are two of the most frequent concerns they address.
