I am dedicated to helping people work through life's unique challenges. I am here to assist you in reaching new solutions and working toward your goals. I can support individuals in coping with depression, anxiety, sexual identity or orientation, life skills for young adults, and sexual dysfunction. Couples or those in relationships may be seeking therapy for communication and relationship skills, sexual enrichment, mismatched desire, premarital counseling, or erectile and orgasm difficulties. I am an LGBT-Affirmative, Kink-Aware, and Poly-Inclusive therapist. I was Voted the number 1 Sex Therapist on Long Island for 2015 and 2017.
I have considerable experience in sexual dysfunctions, low desire, erectile difficulties, orgasmic dysfunctions, pre-marital counseling, sexual orientation issues, gender identity issues, sexual minority individuals and families, alternative relationships, trauma, chronic illness, and the effects of these on individuals and families of all types.
You can feel confident knowing you're working with a Certified Sex Therapist. I have experience discussing diverse sexuality topics including aging, pregnancy, male & female sexual dysfunction, cancer, autism and relationships, and alternative relationships. I am the founder and supervising therapist of the Long Island Institute of Sex Therapy.
