Dawn Michael, MA, PhD, ACS, CSC, Counselor in Thousand Oaks
My mission is to help you resolve sexual problems. Each counseling session is interactive, providing solutions through an individualized plan. My approach is non judgmental and based on fixing the problem rather than labeling it. Some couples need help spicing up their sex lives, while others may be experiencing sexual problems that prevent them from having sex at all. If you find that sex has become painful, frustrating or a duty then I can help you. Perhaps one of you wants sex more often than the other creating mismatched sex drive? Some couples need help repairing a marriage after infidelity.
One problem is the use of pornography and how that can impact a relationship. Perhaps hormones are playing a role in lack of desire, or causing physical problems. ED or early ejaculation or problems with orgasm? No problem is too complicated for me to help you with.
Please visit my website for more formation on pricing and appointments. No insurance accepted and one week notice to book first appointment. All new clients and couples meet for an 80 minute initial appointment.
