My specialty training includes LGBTQ+ Affirmative Therapy (SMU), Sex Therapist certification in progress (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors & Therapists / AASECT), Indigenous Circle of Wellness certification in progress (The So'oh-Shináli Sister Project).
To honestly know yourself is to pursue a lifelong journey of self-exploration, to gain a deeper understanding of oneself in the wake of life events, and, especially, to be willing to share with others who may be navigating a similar quest-- or even with those who are able to extend a great deal of empathy. This may be tough, scary work, but the rewards are invaluable, to put it lightly. You gain a deeper sense of freedom and autonomy to decide how you want to live, and truly become the author of your own story.

In a culture, where judging or joking about the sexuality of others is common, talking about personal challenges with our own sexuality is often difficult and embarrassing. You may have just learned about an affair or other act of infidelity and are feeling angry, confused, and hurt; may be wondering why you cannot seem to stop compulsive behavior with prostitutes, anonymous partners, or pornography; may have been sexually abused, not knowing how to find peace and move on; or may feel so much anxiety about sex that you are unable to enjoy it. I provide a safe place to talk.

I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Certified Sex Therapist in my late 30's.
Moving locations from Houston to Dallas. Starting January 1st in Dallas. When did you learn conflict resolution while you were growing up? And, from who? These questions are often met with laughter from clients as they quickly reply, "I didn't!" How can you be expected to utilize skills that you never learned? We don't inherently know how to have healthy relationships with partners and/or ourselves. Give you and your partner (or potential partners) a break. You dont have to keep ignoring the obvious signs of distress. We all need some help sometimes!

Sex Therapy

Who is sex therapy for?

Sex problems are common in relationships. Many people want a better sex life and want to feel loved and desired by their partner. It is difficult for couples to resolve sexual problems on their own because people often feel ashamed to talk about their sexual desires fearing they are not normal, when in fact a very broad range of preferences and behaviors are normal. A sex therapist can help clarify this and other matters.

Why do people need sex therapy?

Many people do not know how to talk about their erotic needs or their emotional needs, both of which are addressed in sex therapy. Couples often live with sexual difficulties for years before seeking help, and in that time, partners may experience so much disappointment and alienation that they may fear their problems mean they are incompatible. Once people experience disappointment, it is difficult to find resolution without help.

What happens in sex therapy?

People have many misconceptions about what takes place in sex therapy. First, it is a form of talk therapy in which partners discuss their sexual concerns; it does not involve touching or physical exploration of any kind. Sex therapy typically helps couples get comfortable talking to each other about sex so that, in the privacy of their home life, they can openly discuss their sexual desires and make decisions about what they want to do. Couples are typically assigned activities to do at home that build intimacy skills.

What kinds of problems do sex therapists treat?

Very often, partners differ in their degree of sexual desire and struggle over how often to have sex. Or they may have fights about porn use or have difficulty connecting sexually after one partner is unfaithful. Men may have problems with premature ejaculation. Women may find themselves struggling to become aroused or to achieve an orgasm. Sometimes partners feel like they have lost the sense of attraction to their partner. These are all common issues dealt with in sex therapy.
