“I am not what happened to me. I am who I chose to become.” ~ Carl Jung
No two people are the same and there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to psychotherapy. Each client is unique with his or her own set of circumstances, personality style, preferences and needs. I tailor my therapy to meet the specific needs of each client. Whether you are struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, self-esteem, sexual concerns, or any other issue, I will help you recognize underlying problems, fully realize your strengths and adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to see things a different, healthier way.
My practice specializes in treating individuals and couples and I offer comprehensive services dealing with:
- Self-Development and Empowerment
- Individual and Couples Sexuality and Sexual Issues
- Sexual Health
- Sexual Trauma, Addiction and Shame
- LGBT and Gender
- Intimacy and Relationship
What is Sex Therapy?
Simply put, Clinical Sexology is the diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues and emotional concerns affecting a person’s sexual function, drive, and desire for intimacy. As a Clinical Sexologist I have advanced training in Counseling Psychology as well as in Sexuality. I am inherently sex-positive and maintain a broad perspective by taking factors such as biological, psychological, sociological, anthropological and historical into consideration when addressing sexual issues.
There are several reasons why a person might choose to seek sex counseling, but it is most often recommended for anyone whose quality of life is affected by their sexual function or desire, or for anyone having problems with intimacy within a relationship, regardless of age, gender, and background. Adolescents who are confused or concerned about sexual matters may also seek the help of a sex therapist.
Sessions are strictly instructive and verbal in a completely non judgmental setting. It is a type of talk-therapy, and there is no physical contact and nothing sexual in nature will ever take place during the session. Sex therapy is largely a mental and emotional reflection of one’s own internal conflicts, concerns, and questions about sex.
