Does overwhelming stress and indecision impact your sexual/non-sexual relationships and quality of life? I am a sex therapist specialist. I integrate 20 years of extensive and diverse experiences in the field of behavioral health into the expert treatment of sex, intimacy and relationship related concerns; mood disorders and traumatic stress for adults 18 years of age and older. Therapy is highly interactive, engaging, informative and strength based. The foundation is built on trust, respect and the understanding that the client, with guidance and knowledge, has the strength to move beyond the challenges of being "stuck" in maladaptive patterns.
My specialties include 1) couple's psychotherapy & sex therapy (treatment of erectile dysfunction, low/absent sexual desire, atypical sexual behavior and sex addiction and out of control sexual behavior); 2) men's mental health issues; 3) trauma and 4) complex and co-morbid psychiatric, substance abuse & medical disorders.
I'm honored by my clients' ability to trust me with helping them work through difficult challenges. I'm an open, affirming and "sex-positive" sex therapist who has successfully worked with many individuals and couples from the heterosexual and GLBTQQI communities. You can find out more at
