Announcement icon During the COVID-19 emergency, all clinical services are being provided virtually through online or phone therapy.
I am an active therapist. I design treatment plans and utilize strategies that are appropriate for both the issues and the personalities of my clients. I work with individuals in the context of their life and couples seeking to repair, improve or strengthen their relationship. My areas of specialty include intimacy, conflict, anger issues and the breadth of sexuality concerns.
I am the Founder and Director of the Philadelphia Institute for Individual, Relational & Sex Therapy (PhIIRST). I have over 25 years of experience as an educator, public speaker, writer, and therapist with a specialization in sexuality issues.
My practice assesses and treats the complexity of the clients issues. We partner with medical practices and other health care providers to treat mind and body.
