Are you concerned about your sexual relationship or your relationship with sex? Dr. Shanna Bean is a licensed clinical psychologist and sex therapist.  She is passionate about helping women address their sexuality, gender identity, and relationship with sex.  

Dr. Bean's practice is focused on helping you improve your relationships. Relationship issues exist both in and outside the bedroom. Sexual issues are often the most difficult to talk about, but relationships deserve healthy sexual communication. That’s where she can help!

As important of a role as sex plays in our lives, it is one of the least discussed topics between partners. Improving communication around sex  is a huge step toward resolving sexual problems and improving sexual intimacy.  Dr. Bean's practice with individuals and couples is a safe space to learn about, explore, and talk about sex.

Sex should always be pleasurable. However, if you or your partner struggle with sexual issues, sex can be anything but. Dr. Bean offers customized treatment to individuals and couples experiencing various sexual issues including arousal, desire, performance, orgasm, intimacy, satisfaction, pleasure, pain, sexual trauma, infertility, and how sex is impacted before, during, and after pregnancy.

In addition, as an LGBTQ affirmed psychologist specialized in child development, she can help you successfully work through struggles around your sexual orientation, gender identity, attachment, intimacy, and sexuality, 

Dr. Bean's goal is to help restore and reinvigorate sexual pleasure and enjoyment (back) into your life and your relationship!
