About

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).
My specializations and experience allow us to work together with a purpose: To help committed couples dedicated to making their love last, learn how to effectively communicate their emotional and sexual wants and needs so that they can thrive in connection, grow in desire, and deepen intimacy. This applies to pre-marital all the way through the golden years.
Therefore, wherever you are in your journey together, I can accelerate your path to clarity, communication and connection - tailored to your unique relationship needs. You are not alone. Know that there is hope, and that I am here to support your relationship. Give me a call or send me an email today.
