Gila Shapiro: Individual Sex Couples Therapy, MA, MFT, CST, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
Couples Specialist: Couples often come to therapy in crisis and despair. They experience communication breakdowns, sexless relationships, infidelity or just sense a growing distance from one another. In my work with couples, we learn how to stop blaming, manage conflict more effectively and strengthen the intimacy of the relationship. As I am a certified sex therapist, sexuality is a subject that I address as part of the work we do.
Individual Therapy: Individual therapy focuses on on having a better understanding of the feelings, thoughts and actions that create low self-esteem, anxiety and are obstacles to well-being and a better sense of self. We pay attention to the the negative 'self talk' and find ways of re-framing rigid cognitive messages.
Sex Therapy: We talk about specific concerns related to sex. Sexual concerns may include erectile dysfunction, sexual anxiety, lack of desire, body dysmorphia. Sex therapy can be effective for couples and individuals of any gender or sexual orientation. I am a member of AASECT, The American Association of Suicidology and CAMFT.
