Are you having relationship problems and sexual difficulties? I specialize in working with individuals and couples seeking sex therapy and couples counseling to improve intimacy, deal with desire discrepancy, and conflict. I specialize in working with women's sexual health issues: vaginismus, sexual trauma, past abuse, pelvic pain, low desire. There is help, don't suffer! Call me. I offer a client centered approach to help you as the unique individual or couple that you are. I am honored to work with you and together we can address anxiety, grief and loss, depression, PTSD and more.

I practice sex positive, LBGTQ affirming, Kink and Poly friendly therapy. I work with sexual orientation, coming out, and questions/concerns around gender identity. My post graduate training was through University of Michigan's Sexual Health Certificate Program. I hold a certificate from U of M with concentrations in sex therapy and sexuality education.

I am an adjunct professor at the Wayne State University School of Social Work, teaching a graduate level Human Sexuality class. I also serve on the Board of Affirmations LGBT Community Center. Your sexuality does not have an expiration date! Addressing sexual issues can improve your quality of living, increasing pleasure! Contact me today for an appointment.
