The Institute for Personal Growth (IPG) employs the largest number of certified sex therapists in New Jersey. In fact, we are official trainers for the organization that certifies sex therapists, the American Association for Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT). Because many sexual problems affect relationships, not just individuals, our sex therapists also have extensive training in several forms of couples therapy. This means we are the ideal choice to handle relationship problems with a sexual component. Whether your problem is primarily a sexual issue or part of a larger marital problem, we are the right choice.

I want to help my clients identify and meet the goals that are right for them, rather than those that fit society's expectations. These often include developing a strong identity, forming and maintaining satisfying relationships, and living authentically. Another part of my work is consulting with other providers and institutions about affirmative practices with transgender/LGBTQ people. I am available for speaking engagements, trainings, and ongoing consultation groups for mental health/medical practices, schools and universities, and in corporate settings. I also conduct surgical and hormone evaluations.

On the outside it looks like you have it together but inside it feels like you're crumbling. Just moving through daily life seems to trigger such strong emotions. Perhaps you find yourself feeling sad, irritable or anxious most of the time. There's a deep, aching void inside that doesn't get full, no matter what you try. Relationships are so complicated to navigate, even with the people you love. And when you finally get into bed at night, you can’t seem to sleep or you find your sleep disrupted. You just want to feel better.

Relationship issues may cause or make worse : anxiety, depression , panic attacks addictions etc. .These can be recent or to do with earlier experiences that still impact on your wellbeing. Childhood traumatic experiences are particularly hard to forget and may cause distress for many years as they remain unconscious. My approach is time efficient. 6-8 sessions could bring significant improvement. Driving panic, exam panic fear of flying , etc. can be resolved in 4-5 sessions. Of course, more complex relationship issues and feeling states would take longer .

You’ve been trying so hard to get to a better space. And you are learning, to your frustration and despair, that you can’t just "will" yourself into calmer emotions, or out of the cycle of numbing behaviors. Maybe you're spending hours daily scrolling through your phone or sleeping away the ache inside. Maybe you feel like your relationship with food and your body is consuming all of your energy. Maybe you push people away, or frantically hold onto relationships that are no longer healthy. Maybe you find yourself pursuing shopping, sex, or drugs in an effort to quiet the storm within. Maybe you are struggling with self- harm.

IPG PAVED THE WAY for other gay affirmative therapists - we started in 1983 specifically to provide therapy to the gay and lesbian community, back when most practitioners thought it was a mental illness. We're still trailblazers: we work with transgender people, bisexuals/pansexuals, kinky people, couples who practice consensual nonmonogamy, and others who make up the "Q" in LGBTQ. You may not want therapy BECAUSE you are gay, but you definitely want a therapist who is not only affirming but knowledgeable. We understand the special issues of LGBTQ individuals, couples, and families, and we provide sex therapy as well.

Therapy is about feeling better. It's a learning process. It requires a comfortable atmosphere, conducive to talking and expressing inner feelings. I try to create this environment by offering respect, sensitivity and compassion. I bring enthusiasm, and hope to the therapeutic process, as well as insight and creativity. This, in turn, helps one to develop an understanding of one's self and one's circumstances, and thus, the process of change begins, where one can acquire an ability to tackle whatever the challenge may be.

I see people with depression, anxiety, compulsive behaviors as well as traumatic histories and losses. Together, we will work to gain a deep understanding of your early and lifelong relationships, in which your struggles were formed. Additionally, I ask about how social, economic, gendered and racial issues frame your pain. I integrate a basic psycho-dynamic understanding integrated with trauma techniques, body work, hypnosis and cognitive behavioral work in individual and group therapy. Group therapy adds another layer of healing possibility through the camaraderie, clarity and empathy groups provide.
