I am a certified sex therapist through the American Association for Sexual Educators Counselors and Therapist (AASECT), I have received hundreds of hours of extra education through universities, conferences and symposiums in regards to the treatment of Sexual problems that affects individuals and in couples in a relationships. I was also required and am still ongoing in attending case conferences and supervision under a variety of supervisors who have years of experience in the field of sexology.

My expertise will help individuals and couples who are struggling in the possible psychological difficulties in the following areas:

Sexual Relationships for Couples:

Sexual relationships are issues that couples don't often discuss enough to achieve sexual satisfaction. As a Marriage and Family Therapist working with couples on conflict resolution and improving communication styles, sexual relationships often come up as part of the conflict of the marriage. As a trained sex therapist in addition to being a couples therapist, I believe that I have the expertise to help you resolve the big umbrella that covers marital conflict including the context of sexual dissatisfaction, pain or withdrawal.

Sexual Relationships for Couples after infidelity:

Infidelity is defined in many different ways by couples. It could includes the discovery of porn watching within a marriage or one partner discovering that his/her partner have been having an emotional affair and it also could be the type of an affair that one partner has been involved with another person within the context of the marriage. Couples often overcome incidents of infidelity but the most difficult part of this recovery becomes reigniting their sexual relationship. The partner who has been "cheated on" often has a difficulty re-engaging in sexual activities within the marriage. My hope is to help you re-establish and reignite your sexual activities.

Rejuvenate your sexual life after decades of marriage:

Often couples complain or give up on enjoying sex after being married for decades or when they reach a certain age. My expertise and help could give you ideas to converse and rejuvenate this aspect of your marriage. This could be a simple two sessions meeting which will change your sex life.

Sexual Pain Disorder: which is difficulty experienced by an individual or a couple during any stage of a normal sexual activity, including physical pleasure, desirepreferencearousal or orgasm. Sexual dysfunctions can have a profound impact on an individual's perceived quality of sexual life.

Delayed Ejaculation: also called retarded ejaculation or inhibited ejaculation, is a man's inability for or persistent difficulty in achieving orgasm, despite typical sexual desire and sexual stimulation.

Erectile Disorder: characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual performance.

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder: is considered a sexual dysfunction and is characterized as a lack or absence of sexual fantasies and desire, as judged by a clinician. For this to be regarded as a disorder, it must cause marked distress or interpersonal difficulties and not be better accounted for by another mental disorder, a drug (legal or illegal), or some other medical condition.

Orgasmic Disorder: Anorgasmia is a type of sexual dysfunction in which a person cannot achieve orgasm, even with adequate stimulation. In males, the condition is often related to delayed ejaculation. Anorgasmia can often cause sexual frustration. Anorgasmia is far more common in females than in males and is especially rare in younger men.

These disorders can be physiological or psychological. Please consult with your physician, neurologist, urologist or Gynecologist for a preliminary assessment for any of those conditions before assuming that it is a psychological problem. If your physician fails to find a physiological factor that contributes to any of these sexual problems, it's known that the secondary effect could be psychological.
