Loving Couple

Individual Therapy

Sex should be a rewarding, enjoyable, loving part of life. When difficulties in your sex life make you frustrated and unhappy, it may be time to seek out sex therapy. I believe that life is to be enjoyed and should not be a struggle. To that end I have studied many techniques to get you out of difficulties and into a balanced life as quickly as is reasonably possible.

My focus is to help you as an individual overcome your sexual problems, fears, anxieties or addictions so that you can have a happy and enjoyable life. The emphasis is on brief therapy, in which we deal with your challenges in as few sessions as possible. I see us working together for solutions and so you can develop ways to maintain a balanced, happy, successful life.

My training and background as a registered nurse (RN) help me understand the physical and medical side of many problems including sexual problems and issues. I also work with medical doctors easily as I see individuals often need an integrated approach to therapy. It is my goal to help you enjoy all areas of of your life.

My specialized training in human sexuality and counseling have prepared me to work with a variety of sexual problems, such as: impotence, premature ejaculation, inability to have orgasms, lack of sexual desire, anxiety disorders, a history of sexual abuse and others.
