About

We are seeing our individuals and couples in tele-therapy through the COVID-19 crisis. As a "Top Marriage, Family and Sex Therapist" in Washingtonian Magazine in 2009 & 2012, my focus is on helping couples address their emotional and sexual ruptures in their relationships. If you feel far apart from or in conflict with your partner, therapy can help you to feel close again. As an couples relationship and certified sex therapist, with over 30 years of experience, couples learn to unravel their dance and a structured communications tool, which fosters listening, understanding and empathy. Sexual and emotional intimacy are restored.
Our group practice, Guttman and Pearl Associates, offers individual therapy for depression, anxiety and self esteem issues, as well as an adjunct to couples therapy, when needed. Additionally, I offer clinical consultation to other therapists in couples therapy and sex therapy through individual and group sessions.
A Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I received my Masters in Social Work from Washington University. I am a Certified Imago Relationship & Singles Therapist, Community Educator, and Consultant, as well as a Certified Sex Therapist and Certified Sex Therapy Supervisor (by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists).

Gail Guttman's Groups

Women and Sexuality

The goal of this ten session group is to help participants explore inhibitions to sexual pleasure. You will have many opportunities to: learn more about your own body; dispel myths about female sexuality and stereotypes; discover positive approaches and techniques to increase sexual enjoyment; discuss lack of desire and becoming orgasmic; identify what you want from relationships; develop ways of communicating sexually with your partner. Group discussions will be augmented with lectures and films. Exploring sexuality within a group setting provides support for participants who often feel alone in dealing with sexual concerns.
