  • Welcome Message

    Sex therapy or counseling is a specialized form of talk therapy that focuses on concerns of sexual functioning, expression, or communication about sex. Sexual issues and concerns are common and most often fixable. My commitment to each of my clients is to hold a warm and inviting space in order to meet each of them wherever they are on their personal path to pleasure.

    Because of feelings of hurt, anger, resentment, disappointment, and inhibition, many have a difficult time solving intimate issues on their own. Many deeply desire to talk about sexual issues but cannot find the right words or the right time, so they keep quiet, and the problems feel bigger than they are.

    Talking through the various elements of sexual experience in a therapeutic setting can help couples and individuals identify obstacles (that might exist beyond the realm of sexual performance) and find solutions to sexual and relationship issues. A well-trained sex therapist is aware of how overwhelming it may feel to talk about this intimate subject.

    Sex therapy becomes an opportunity to explore the stories and beliefs we hold about sex.

    Most of us hold misinformation, beliefs, or misunderstandings about sex learned from well-intended parents and cultural or religious traditions. Sex therapy becomes an opportunity to talk about these misunderstandings as well as misunderstandings that occur in long-term romantic relationships. So, counseling becomes the place where you expand what sex and sexuality is for each individual while integrating what is the sexuality of the relationship. Ultimately helping you experience amazing sex and pleasure as your birthright.

    Sex is not just a physical act. Sex embodies and integrates the physical, the emotional, the mental, and the spiritual aspects of all partners. Counseling can help individuals and couples explore different facets of sexuality. Sexuality is not only about functioning but creating more intimacy, connection and pleasure.
