Jennifer Stuckert-Knapp, LMFT, RDT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Los Angeles
Do you feel stuck or disconnected? Does your inner-critic often get the best of you? Do you desire a more authentic and meaningful life--one that includes deeper intimacy, freedom from shame, and enhanced embodiment and pleasure? I help individuals and couples embody their authentic selves, learn how to effectively communicate their feelings, desires, needs, and boundaries, deepen their capacity for intimacy, honor their goals and dreams, transform sexual shame and negative body image, and cultivate their capacity to experience playfulness and pleasure.
Common issues that I work with include: depression; anxiety; low self-esteem; life transitions; loss and grief; abuse and trauma; and communication and intimacy issues. In terms of sexual health issues, I treat: low desire and arousal; desire differences in couples; orgasmic difficulty; sexual pain; early and delayed ejaculation; and erectile disorder.
I completed postgraduate sex therapy training at the University of Michigan Sexual Health Certificate Program. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (#86073) Registered Drama Therapist, and associate at the Living Arts Center, where I see individuals, couples, and facilitate Embracing Your Sexual Self workshops and Transform Your Life Script groups.
