Sex, affairs, low desire, arguing, wondering why you stay together? Relationships are hard. I have been in practice for 30 years. My focus is on the tough issues that affect all of us. Are you unhappy? Therapy can help. Relationship counseling helps improve communication and individual counseling can remind you why you are with your partner and how to heal (or determine what comes next.) I'm a Licensed Counselor and Certified Sex Therapist. Repair your relationship, heal and create more passion. Turn off the computer. Find more happiness. Create intimacy now. Intensives available. Open, closed, alternative, LGBTQ welcome.

To make real changes in your relationship you both have to shift your issues. You might be able to do it by phone in one session or you may need an Intensive for two days, created just for the two of you. Wondering if your marriage will survive? Email me.

I am the author of several books including "The New Monogamy," "Getting the Sex You Want" and "What's Eating You?" and several eBooks including "Six Weeks to Erotic Recovery." I write for lots of blogs and you can find my free articles if you are looking for online advice.
