I specialize in treating both men and women of all sexual orientations with their sexual health and relationship concerns. That includes issues like sexual dysfunction, difficulty with sexual expression, mismatched levels of desire and ruts in relationships.
I help individuals and couples discover what is getting in their way and teach them the skills and strategies to get the sex and relationships they want.
I can also help with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, life transitions, fertility and post-partum issues. My patients have realized excellent treatment results in these areas.
Helping you is important to me. I work hard to remain a dedicated and informed authority in my field so that I can provide you with the tools you need to live your best life. As such, I have lectured and published extensively on the topics of Sexual Dysfunction, Intimacy and Sexuality and am a frequently cited expert in numerous publications including the New York Times.
