Sexual difficulties of some nature are extremely common for individuals as well as couples.  Talking about sex and sexuality often elicits feelings of shame and discomfort, making it hard to receive support and create change. I provide a safe and nonjudgmental environment and am educated in issues related to sexuality.  I provide evidenced based treatments to support you in creating the changes you desire.  Sex therapy is an opportunity to address and work through issues related to sexual dynamics in your relationship and with yourself.  I am passionate about helping people repair and revive their relationships so that they thrive. Addressing sexual challenges can be fundamental component of this work.  

Common areas addressed in sex therapy are low sex drive, a lack of sexual intimacy,  the impact of differing physical limitations and abilities on intimacy, changes associated with aging and other life stages, consensual nonmonogamy, difficulties associated with lubrication, erection, vaginal pain and orgasm as well as general dissatisfaction. 

I am in the process of working towards AASECT certification and am engaged in on-going training and sex therapy consultation. 

*Disclosure* Sex Therapy is similar to traditional therapy in that it involves talking within the office and may involve assignments provided for outside of the office.  No sexual activity is conducted in the sessions.
