Our sex life, like our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual life, is an important element in our identity.  Healthy emotional & sexual

intimacy is crucial in creating wholeness in ourselves and our lives.  Sometimes problems arise that make sexual expression difficult or non-existent.


Many people are so uncomfortable talking  about sex and about their own sexuality that problems get ignored.  Even doctors and other health professionals manage to avoid asking important questions about sexual health.


Things that Affect Sexual Health:


  •      Anxiety about your "performance"
  •      Anxiety about your body image
  •      Feeling inexperienced and lacking in confidence
  •      Beliefs that sex is "bad" or "dirty"
  •      Past sexual trauma
  •      Difficulties communicating your needs & wants
  •      Depression
  •      Alcohol and substance abuse
  •      Certain medications
  •      Certain medical conditions
  •      Chronic pain
  •      Low hormones
  •      Injury or illness
  •      Using sex as a means to cope with other emotions
  •      Hurting others through sexual behavior

Sex Addiction Recovery Program



Sex Therapy is conducted in a confidential

office environment.  There is no sexual contact

between therapist and client.  Sex therapists

should have advanced post graduate training

in clinical sexology and meet the Florida State

regulatory criteria  to provide sex therapy services.


Emotional & Physical Intimacy.  The absence of one or the other can greatly effect the quality of the relationship, create conflict, put up barriers between you and your lover, and eventually break down the bond in a romantic partnership.


Sex Addiction ~  The term "sex addiction" or "sexual compulsivity" refers to an unusually strong desire for sex or obsession with sex, that results in behaviors that are often damaging.  Despite the known consequences, people addicted to sex find it difficult to stop their behaviors.




From a very young age I knew I wanted to be a psychotherapist.  I was introduced to psychotherapy as a child, when my own family participated in family therapy.  My belief in our power to make positive change in our lives comes not only from years of academic work but also my own lived experiences.  I believe that there are lessons in all our life struggles and we take on the challenge, we can learn and grow--reconnecting to our authentic Self.

I believe that depression and anxiety are most often the result of not living our lives authentically--having made decisions that go against who we are at our core, transgressing our values, or living life as others may expect us to live.  I believe that  the 'stories' we tell ourselves about our Self, others and the world dramatically affect how we feel and respond, and influence the decisions we have made in the past and will make in the future.
