Sex and intimacy is at the very core of the human experience.  When sex is going well, it is easy to take for granted.  When sex is out of kilter however, it can feel like a looming dark cloud that just won’t go away.  If it is dark enough for long enough, even the best of relationships can be at risk.

What to do?

The first step is simply to make an appointment.  Some people feel a sense of relief knowing they now have a process in place.  My goal is to help people begin to feel better at their very first session. We may not solve all of life’s challenges in one visit; however, we can certainly assess your situation, get a plan in place, and begin working to help you achieve your goals.

Back in the 1980’s, the Harvard Business School made me practical, solution focused, and an effective problem solver. After a successful business career, I attended graduate school in San Francisco, where I studied the vast breadth and depths of the human sexual experience.

My Ph.D. is in Human Sexuality while my clinical training is in Marriage & Family Therapy.   This unique blend of experience serves my clients well.  So well in fact that today, former clients and other clinicians refer more than half of my new clients to me.

I work with any matter related to sex and intimacy. Specializing in sexuality as I do allows me to be fully immersed in the nuances of sex therapy and couples counseling. Being current on the newest and most effective treatment options is important and, because I see similar cases repeatedly, it is likely this won’t be my first time helping somebody with a sexual concern similar to yours.

Most of my clients have seen at least two other therapists. I believe that specializing as I do has played a critical role in my ability to help people solve what were previously unsolvable problems.  I truly believe and operate under the assumption that there is always hope no matter how bleak things may seem. Regardless of the goal you are focused on achieving, my intention is to help you create sustainable change with a process designed to work for you.
