Get the Sex You Want and Deserve
If you’re seeking a more sex-positive life, sex therapy is a good investment of your time, energy and money. Regardless of your specific challenges, relationship status, sexual identity, problems or preferences, I can assist you in designing a pleasurable, personalized sexual lifestyle.
Together, we can be successful if you are willing to:
- Experience emotional and physical pleasure with yourself and/or a partner.
- Step out of your comfort zone and talk honestly about your feelings, thoughts and desires.
- Overcome negative feelings (anxiety, guilt, embarrassment, shame) frequently associated with confronting sexual issues.
- Assume an open-minded attitude toward exploring and learning about new sexual ideas, behaviors and feelings.
- Communicate your responses to new learning with me and/or your partner.
- Make appointments and homework assignments a high priority.
As a sex therapist, I can help you achieve the sex life you really want and deserve. If positive change is your goal, I will partner with you to achieve it.

Sex Addiction Recovery
- Do you find yourself increasingly drawn to viewing pornography?
- Would you rather watch pornography and masturbate than have sex with your partner?
- Do you secretly lead a “double life of intrigue and cover-up”?
- Do you both love and hate your fantasies, behaviors, and desires?
- When in “the zone” does your heart race, pupils dilate, breath shorten, palms sweat, feelings intensify and your mind…(well, let’s just ask, is your judgment is impaired)?
Sex Addict Behaviors
It is not too difficult to determine if a healthy interest in sex has transitioned into a possible addiction. If you are concerned about the possibility of addiction, some of the typical activities and behaviors indicative of addiction are:
- Compulsive use of porn — with or without masturbation
- Anonymous on-line hookups
- Multiple affairs/infidelities
- Virtual sex, sexting, abusing social networking
- Frequent visits to adult bookstores, strip clubs, sensual massage practitioners
- Multiple unsuccessful attempts to moderate or stop inappropriate behavior
If you feel ready to take action and explore your options for recovery from the cycle of addiction, guilt, shame and remorse, I would be pleased to help you explore this issue in a compassionate and non-judgmental manner.

Sex Addiction Recovery From a Woman’s Perspective
Let’s face it — addiction demographics validate the fact that most sex addicts are male and most partners are female. Certainly not all, but most of the collateral damage of addiction is experienced by women and children. Because women tend to be highly intuitive, they may sense over a long period of time that their partner is disengaged from the family, disconnected from them emotionally and sexually, and somehow “troubled.” Feeling concerned and seeking answers, most addictions and infidelities are discovered by women searching through their partner’s emails, texting and related on-line search activity. Questions you may have considered:
- Do you suspect (or have you discovered) that your partner is having an affair?
- Did you “catch” your husband watching pornography and are you worried about your intimate relationship?
- Is your partner spending more and more time (and perhaps money) on the internet, viewing pornography or actually participating in “virtual” but very real, sexual activity?
If you suspect that your partner may be addicted to sex or is having an affair, you may benefit from professional help. Mending any relationship fractured by addiction or infidelity is challenging work for most individuals and couples. While much of the attention is focused on the behavior and recovery of the “offender – it is really the women and children who experience the greatest loss and psychological trauma. Betrayal of trust is the most hurtful dynamic and side effect of addiction for women and it is the major focus of therapeutic intervention.
