Are you struggling with issues around sexuality and intimacy and are running into walls trying to fix your problems? Maybe therapy or medicine has been only moderately beneficial and you are seeking some practical, reliable tools and techniques to achieve the results you desire?

Most clients see results quickly using my tried and true approaches to sexuality.  My work is a blend of Clinical Sexology, Sex Education, and techniques from The Gottman Method Couples Therapy.

Our sessions begin with a thorough intake appointment that includes a sexual and lifestyle history and goals for treatment.  Couples also receive the Relationship Checkup assessment designed by The Gottman Method to accurately assess the problem spots in the relationship to get to the heart of any blocks in intimacy. Clients receive HomePlay exercises to do in between sessions and additional resources including custom crafted curriculum, articles and book suggestions.

In person sessions coupled with HomePlay generally, take 10 sessions to see marked results and achievement of sex and intimacy goals. However, I see clients for as long or as short as it takes to achieve their goal and believe in the expression, “take all the time you need”.

This work is wonderful as stand-alone sex coaching for those who are ready to dive in and see some changes in their life and, some people benefit from seeing a psychotherapist in addition to myself if there are deep-rooted issues that our work is not able to address. I may work in conjunction with sex surrogates and sexological bodyworkers if clients are also needing some assistance with hands-on therapies that are outside my scope of practice. To discuss these options please do not hesitate to reach out.

My work is trauma-informed, meaning that I do not believe in pushing people farther than they can go, I respect boundaries and use a collaborative approach to transformation – taking into consideration any past traumas, wounds or hurts that would warrant a slow and gentle approach.
