Vive Ut Vivas means to live life to the fullest. That statement is exactly what I want to help my clients to do. Through therapy, I want to provide my clients with the tools that they need to live their life to the fullest and to discover the potential they have within themselves. My goal is to work with individuals and couples to face their challenges and move beyond those challenges in a supportive, positive and therapeutic way. Specialties include sex therapy, sex addiction, relationships, sexual issues and much more.
I am a Certified Sex Therapist in Florida. I work with individuals, families and couples on a variety of sex and relationship related issues. I strive to provide an environment free from judgment where clients can comfortably address sexual and other issues in a completely confidential environment.
Please don't let finances be a barrier to seeking treatment. Call today and see if we can work out an arrangement that works for you. Sex therapy is a specialty that requires additional training beyond Licensure. If seeking this service, please make sure it is with someone who has been trained appropriately.
