About

At the Boston Center for Couples and Sexuality, we help patients to increase the emotional and physical connections in their lives, whether it is with a partner, children, parents, or themselves. Our patients find that we can facilitate their ability to look at tough issues, communicate with others, accept themselves, and reach mutually agreed upon goals. You can learn how to regulate your body, be less reactive, and have empathy and compassion for yourself and others. The only thing you have control over is how you respond in a situation.
One unique specialty area of our practice is sex therapy for individuals, couples and groups. Sexuality can be an important part of who we are, individually and with a partner. Identification of challenging life circumstances and thought patterns can be helpful in resolving a person's or couple's sexual problems.
Connect with your partner like never before. Imago Relationship Therapy is an effective, loving and compassionate approach to bridging the distance between you and your partner! The principles and practices of Imago Therapy have touched thousands of lives. Learn how to see, and be seen by, your partner.
