Long-Term Relationship

"My husband and I have been together for more than forty years, and for the last thirty, we have been dealing with conflict over sexual intimacy. We tried personal counseling, we tried marriage counseling, and our difficulties only persisted. This year, my husband and I decided once again to seek help. This time, we wanted to find a therapist who could listen to both sides of the sexual conflict that had become a cancer on our marriage, and somehow guide us to a place that would change our sexual relationship to the loving satisfaction we both sought. We found Dr. Anya-a sex and intimacy coach.

Our previous attempts at personal and marriage counseling--private sessions with a therapist and couples communication classes through Kaiser--never addressed our fundamental difficulty which seemed to arise from a sex-life that was contentious. This led to a reluctance on the part of my husband to trust therapy to address our conflict. However, at his wits' end, my reluctant husband finally agreed to try seeing Dr. Anya. We warily scheduled a free consultation to discuss our issues and see whether she could help.

After describing her methods, Anya reported that with Homeplay--exercises devised to help set new behavior patterns and sensitize partners to their mutual goals--couples were usually able to achieve improvement within six or more sessions. We decided to go for it as we had nothing to lose having tried everything we could think of on our own. Yes, professional guidance is expensive, but in our experience, it was completely worth it.

With Anya's guidance, we learned how to open up to each other and address our issues for the first time. We learned how to navigate the differences in our case that are often fundamental to male and female arousal, and that made it easier to understand why we could never seem to get on the same page.

Our goal was to break the deadlock we had found ourselves in and to increase our intimacy and have more joy from sex. With Anya's guidance, we feel we have succeeded in re-establishing the connection we had lost. We have rediscovered the ability to address and satisfy our mutual desires. It has not been a particularly simple or easy process to break the destructive cycle that we had found ourselves in after all those years, but Anya has given us tools to use going forward. Finally, it's reassuring knowing that we can always contact Anya for help and further guidance if we find ourselves falling back into old, destructive behaviors".

Desire Discrepancy

"We are a couple who have been together for six years and have been having intimacy issues. We sought out Dr. Anya to help guide us through this rough patch. Anya's warmth and openness made the experience all the more easy. My wife is a little uncomfortable discussing some of these issues, just like many people but in Anya, she found someone in whom she could confide. We had all of our meetings through zoom, I found the video to be as effective if not more so than meeting in person. We highly recommend Dr. Anya to anybody who is seeking to improve their all around relationship with their partner".

Performance Anxiety

"I would highly recommend Dr Anya, she was very valuable in changing our attitudes about sex and putting things in perspective. I really struggled with performance anxiety and had a really hard time keeping an errection, and even if I could, I wouldn’t be able to last. Dr Anya helped by showing how common this issue is which helped me and my partner overcome our fears around it. All in all, it was at the very least helpful to bring in a 3rd party to talk about this instead of having a feud between me and my girlfriend".

Renewing Passion

"Dr. Anya is full of love, acceptance and wisdom for her clients. She helped my husband and I think about our sexual relationship differently which opened new doors for us to explore. She has simple tools that make sexuality easy, fun and free. After 12 years together, Dr. Anya helped us reinvigorate and reprioritize sensual connection in our marriage. I would recommend Dr. Anya to anyone who seeks a safe, loving place to explore sexuality in a new way".

EE/Performance Anxiety

"From the first consultation it was clear that Dr. Anya was the perfect fit. Her warm and welcoming demeanor made me comfortable opening up about personal topics that aren’t easy to discuss. Dr. Anya’s guidance for men navigating the obstacle of early ejaculation and performance anxiety was very helpful. She truly knows how to reframe your philosophy around sex that so many people are miseducated on by society, pornography, ect. With Dr. Anya’s nonjudgmental environment I found the conversations becoming seamless. She provided me with insightful feedback that I would explore outside of class and then report back to her with my experiences and we’d build from there each week. I believe her discussions are valuable to anyone trying to better themselves!"
