With twenty years of experience and outstanding credentials, I have two goals for my clients: Solve the immediate problem that brings you to therapy, and promote lasting change. My arenas of work include depression, stress, and relationship/family difficulties. I am also an AASECT-Certified Sex Therapist and have particular and non-judgmental expertise with sexual issues, including desire problems, affairs, and the so-called "sexless marriage." I welcome clients from varied sexual backgrounds and communities. I believe that while life-affirming sex can't guarantee a relationship, it does help relationships flourish, and lack of it is a proven risk factor.
I also have extensive training, research, and clinical experience with the vexing problems of serious and/or chronic illness. If cancer, MS, diabetes, RA, colitis, Crohn's, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, etc. is upending your life? I can help you AND your well spouse/family.
My work is characterized by warmth, compassion, humor, and especially practicality. Initial phone consultations are free. I'd be happy to hear about your situation and discuss whether I might be helpful.
