Sex Therapy

First, as the training supervisor of a hospital-based Sexuality Center I may have seen more individuals and couples with sexual issues in a single year (I was at the hospital for over 20 years) than most psychologists see in a lifetime.

    My position on therapy: I am not neutral about relationships, I am biased. I am for the healing process and do my best to prevent break ups. I am admittedly impatient with finger pointing and strongly drawn to solutions. I view the person or persons sitting with me to be collaborators toward the goal of a win-win.  Do you have a relationship question? Replies will be in the form of general information and are not intended as therapy.  Please note that communication through email may not be confidential. If you do not hear from me within 48 hours I may not have received your email or I may be slammed with work. Email me directly once again:
