As a solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapist specializing in couples counseling and sex therapy, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying scientific, evidence-based therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Please call or email me for an individual, couples or family therapy consultation today.

What Is Sex Therapy?
Sex therapy involves talking to a qualified sex counselor or sex therapist about sexual concerns.
Sex therapy is a specialized form of psychotherapy. It emphasizes understanding of the psychological and physical causes of sexual difficulties. Increasing information abut sexually enhancing intimate interactions, improving communication skills and improving sexual functioning.
What is involved in Sex Therapy?
Sex therapy is typically of brief duration if the sexual concerns are uncomplicated. However, longer therapy may be needed if medical factors or emotional issues, including relationship problems, complicate the picture.
Typically, Sex Therapy involves couple therapy because both partners are affected by sexual concerns. Homework is often given as an adjunct to therapy, because it helps people to work on their difficulties between sessions and it speeds up the therapy process. These assignments are commonly experiential exercises, written assignments, bibliotherapy (reading relevant books) or watching appropriate sex educational materials.
Talking about sex or sexual issues isn't comfortable for all clients. Rest assured that the counselor is trained to make this as comfortable and as easy a discussion as possible.
Gaining confidence in talking about sex can uncover and help to alleviate strains you may not have known existed with yourself or your partner.
