Having issues with love, sex, or intimacy? We should talk. Whether you're currently alone or in a relationship, love, sex, and intimacy are central and powerful sources of joy and satisfaction in our lives--so when it's not working, the pain and frustration can be just as powerful.. If every conversation turns into an argument, we should talk. If you want to feel connected again, and reignite feelings that have somehow gotten lost over time, we should talk. If you have concerns about your sexual interests, behavior, or relationships, we should talk. Call us. We can help. :)
Even though everyone has sexuality and intimacy concerns sometimes, they are deeply personal and often scary, and not every therapist has the training and experience to address them. We understand that there is no single way to be sexually healthy, and we can help with problems while still respecting sexual differences.
At OCE, we are sex-positive and strengths-based, even when our clients aren't feeling their strongest or bravest. That means we use the strengths you bring with you to create the changes you're looking for. Explore our website and see how our approach can help.

Concerns about love, sex, and intimacy can be so difficult, and sensitive; and sometimes, it can feel embarrassing or shameful to talk about. After 2 decades of clinical experience in sexuality (including work with offenders), there's nothing I haven't heard, and I've built a practice on helping people feel safe and comfortable discussing it. Take a deep breath, and let's talk.

People learn in different ways. No one approach works for everyone, so we will spend time finding the right approach for you. Need to vent and process? I can listen, reflect, and validate. Need to learn? I can educate. Need homework? I can give you tasks to practice. Hate homework? We can structure our sessions to make the most of the time we spend together. It's about what works for you
