Sexuality and relationships are complex, and sex therapy is not just about sex. Great sex is more about your relationship with yourself and others than it is about technique. In sex therapy, we identify and work through the emotional issues that contribute to sexual problems by using cognitive therapy to change problematic thoughts and attitudes and incorporate behavioral techniques to change physical symptoms and behavior. I use a sexual health model and work with and couples of any sexual orientation & lifestyle. Interventions include psychoeducation about sex, mindfulness exercises, and repairing relationship issues.

Would you like to: Eliminate painful sex? Understand what causes infidelity, and its impact on your relationship? Rev up your sex life? Learn how to increase desire? Have a satisfying relationship with your partner even though you have different levels of desire? Explore alternative lifestyles in your relationship?

If you're nervous about talking about sex, don't worry, I'll make you feel comfortable, and you'll feel supported and empowered. You can expect straightforward and compassionate guidance and feedback from me. We will work collaboratively to help you feel comfortable and happy with your sexuality.
