Announcement icon To keep everyone safe during the pandemic, I am conducting all of my session and couples retreats online until further notice.
Couples therapy is my calling and life passion. I created IntimacyMoons for Couples as an intensive transformation model and was voted Best Couples Retreat by Women's Health, Bustle, Livestrong, Matador Network, Madame Noire and Black Enterprise Magazines. Not only am I a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist but I am also a Certified Sex Therapist, and Certified Sexuality Educator by the American Association of Sexuality Educators and Therapists (AASECT). Therefore, wherever you are in your journey together, I can accelerate your path to clarity, communication and connection - tailored to your unique relationship needs.
I have seen hundreds of couples at various phases from pre-marital to golden years, with a wide range of issues. Also, with specializations in sex therapy, I can get to the root of your sexual intimacy issues. For infertility - I have developed a specialized psycho-emotional program (IntimacyIVF) for the TTC parents-to-be.
You are not alone. Know that there is hope, and that I am here to support your relationship. I have reopened private practice, and cannot wait to help you through your journey. Give me a call or send me an email today. Also, check out my latest feature in the New York Times (Nov 18, 2020): https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/18/style/marriage-proposal.html
