Over the years, I have worked with many individuals and couples who struggle with sexual and sexuality issues. Often, there are underlying issues attached to desire, sex, attraction, and sexuality that one does not completely understand. For many, early sexual experiences began privately as a teenager. One’s increasing desires were soothed with masturbation with the attendant belief that there was something shameful about it. Secrets were fearfully hid, with no one to talk to about sex. As adults, sexual freedom was limited in relationships. In the beginning of a relationship, sex can be easy because one is acting on what nature intended. Then, as people connect on a deeper level, the underlying shame, fear, doubt, and insecurity can start to creep in. In my practice, I believe it is important to have a safe place to express these concerns with honesty and freedom. Especially when it comes to sex. Therefore, my hope is to establish that safety right away. In addition to safety, a client needs to feel support without judgment. When a client feels held in a safe, contained place, healing begins. After safety is established, I work with each client, depending on the issue, to create a treatment plan structured to support and integrate what is learned in therapy.
My experience also include:
• Sex Addiction
