Dr. Sandy Scantling, AASECT Cert. Sex Therapist, PsyD, MSN, CST, DipST, CIFST, Psychologist in Farmington
Would you like to improve your intimate relationship? As an experienced clinical psychologist and master's prepared psychiatric nurse, I treat individuals and couples with a wide variety of concerns. I am also a certified specialist in sexuality. My approach is designed to help you and your partner achieve a more satisfying relationship in a safe, comfortable, respectful setting. I also see men or women with specific sexual concerns including: desire, arousal, orgasm, ejaculation, pelvic pain, ED, distress about pornography, infidelity, divorce, and others. I am committed to help you get "unstuck" and expand your choices.
I'm a therapist, author, nationally recognized couples therapist, intimacy expert, Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCONN School of Medicine, and Certified IFS Therapist (see self leadership.org). Each approach is individualized drawing from a wide range of frameworks including Internal Family Systems, Eriksonian hypnotherapy, & strategic therapy. www.DRSANDY.COM
I offer individual, couples, and sex therapy. All therapy begins with an initial consultation and exploration of your treatment goals. I do not believe in a "one size fits all" approach. Each person & couple is unique ...as unique as your fingerprints. There is no sexual touching in the office.
