Awaken, Embody, Integrate, and Transform . . . Where are you on your journey of authentic sexual expression? As a sex therapist and clinical sexologist, I offer guidance in moving through discomfort, anxiety, insecurity, and uncertainty so my clients are able to find clarity and confidence. I support clients in deepening the capacity for presence, emotional intimacy, and pleasure through mindfulness, self-compassion, and self-acceptance. I especially value helping women learn to cultivate sexual desire and couples to enhance their sexual experiences. I offer referrals for compulsive porn use, as this is beyond my scope of practice.

My work with WOMEN focuses on transitions: divorce, reentering the world of work, adjusting to loneliness, aging, illness, loss.
The Covid 19 world is like no other. Our jobs are to reassure but we are fearful. Families together 24-7, working from home, school partially or fully remote, behaviors escalating. .We miss grandparents, family, friends. Our world is small...and often lonely. I am Jody Fuller, my work focuses solely on the things most important to me: FAMILIES, KIDS/TEENS, WOMEN IN TRANSITION. I offer my help. My 20+years of teaching Pre-8/GIFTED kids helps me help you understand your child's unique development, strengths and needs.

Significant loss, sadness or anxiety can impact our functioning at any point in our lives. A good therapeutic relationship can offer support and clarity. Emotions can seem overwhelming, but having a safe place to process them can be life-changing. Holding emotions alone can create an internal experience of overwhelm, but a connection with a therapist can lessen the feelings of isolation, anxiety, depression and/or stress.

What type of Portsmouth mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Portsmouth?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
