Sexuality and relationships are complex, and sex therapy is not just about sex. Great sex is more about your relationship with yourself and others than it is about technique. In sex therapy, we identify and work through the emotional issues that contribute to sexual problems by using cognitive therapy to change problematic thoughts and attitudes and incorporate behavioral techniques to change physical symptoms and behavior. I use a sexual health model and work with individuals and couples of any sexual orientation & lifestyle. Interventions include psychoeducation about sex, mindfulness exercises, and repairing relationship issues.

Fear, sadness, grief, anger, anxiety, betrayal, confusion, physical pain and other life/relationship/work stresses can leave us feeling lost--- out of balance with ourselves and with others who are important to us. I have worked for 20+ years doing solution-focused therapy with individuals, couples and families who are challenged with such issues. I actively engage with my clients to bring about new insights, and fresh ways of thinking, feeling and behaving where a re-balance can occur. Clients achieve greater clarity, empowerment, peace and satisfaction and in turn feel more connected with themselves and others.

Life happens! At some point in our lives we are faced with challenges that effect us personally or professionally. Sometimes we have people we can talk to about these minor set backs. Other times, we wish there was someone we could talk to, honestly, about the most troubling aspects of our lives without fear of being judged. Having a supportive person in our lives who is objective makes a difference in getting through these "bumps in the road". This is, ideally, what a counselor or therapist is for.

Your job or personal life responsibilities puts you last on the list but you're always first to help others.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in 20878, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20878 are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in 20878. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20878
