Couples Therapy

 

In couples therapy I facilitate communication between you and your partner to uncover the roots of the conflict you're having, help you understand each others' feelings, and change behavior to better meet each others' needs.​

Some concerns I can help you with in couples therapy:

  • Conflict and disagreements

  • Difficulty communicating

  • Sexual concerns or lack of sex in relationship

  • Healing from an affair

  • Navigating non-monogamous relationships

 

You may fear that talking about your relationship issues is going to make them worse. Sometimes things feel worse before they feel better, but most couples experience greater understanding and closeness as a result of therapy.

Sex Therapy

Sex therapy involves talking about your sexual concerns and figuring out what you can do to make them better. It often involves homework, but there's never any sexual activity in sessions. You may wonder if "just talking" about sexual problems is going to help you, but my approach combines talking about problems to understand them better and taking active steps to improve them. I work with both men and women. 

Some concerns I can help you with in sex therapy:

  • Low desire

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Anorgasmia

  • Rapid ejaculation (premature ejaculation)

  • Pain with sex

  • Sexual adjustment after cancer or illness

  • Anxiety, body image concerns, embarrassment, or shame about sex

  • Sexual behavior that feels out-of-control or harmful

  • Past sexual trauma

 

Some people worry that sex therapy will involve endless talking about your past, your parents, or your deepest secret fantasies and sexual desires. These topics may come up, but we will focus on how these things affect your life and your concerns now. We will tend to focus on the present rather than the past as the setting for making change.
