Experienced, highly effective therapist, focusing on sexuality, relationships & intimacy issues in individuals and couples. Embracing a wide range of ages, backgrounds and cultures and successfully work with sexual dysfunction in men and women and all emotional themes involving intimacy. It's important and imperative to find the uniqueness of everyone's story and find healing ways to make the present fulfilling. I strive to understand the people I work with deeply and to address non-working elements in a supportive, non-judgmental and collaborative way. Together, we look to discover, understand and resolve recurring obstacles to your well-being.

Using creative and proven methods, I work to impact issues of lack of desire, performance anxieties, self-image issues & addictions. I use actionable strategies to support healthy resolution of sexual issues. Emotional issues are uncovered & provide a holistic way forward more happily . Sex therapy, couples, premarital therapy and dating issues.

Related areas of expertise include: marital and relationship therapy, LGBT issues, infertility issues, assisted reproductive technology, parenting themes, creative blocks, career issues & successful approaches to dating. My book, The ABCs of Dating: A Guide to Love and Dating for the Openhearted is available on Amazon.
