As an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists), I work with both individuals and couples who are struggling with issues pertaining to sex, sexuality, intimacy, and connection.
Through therapy, people develop a healthier relationship with their sexual selves. Unhelpful beliefs about sex are explored and changed. Inaccurate information is identified and corrected. Unrealistic pressures, unfair expectations, and shame are alleviated. Through this work together, sex becomes fun, playful, and a fulfilling experience of connection.
New techniques and skills can be learned to expand sexual potential. People strengthen skills that enable them to be present with their bodies’ sensations. Sex therapy enables individuals and couples to create satisfying sex lives, in which they are present, connected, and fulfilled.
I treat a variety of sexual concerns, including but not limited to: low sexual desire, sexual dissatisfaction, difficulty enjoying sex, trouble communicating about sex, struggles with orgasms, concerns with sexuality, negative body image, lack of sexual knowledge, issues surrounding gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, coming out to friends and family, gender transitions, and other LGBTQ concerns.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
