Hello! I'm board-certified clinical sexologist, a licensed mental health counselor, a certified cognitive-behavioral therapist, hypnotherapist, certified sex therapist, and nationally certified counselor. I offer relationship counseling and coaching to adults in the Tampa Bay area. I received my Doctorate in Clinical Sexology from The American Academy of Clinical Sexologists, Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University and a Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of South Florida.

I offer individual therapy to adults suffering from anxiety, panic attacks, depression, grief and loss, and life and relationship challenges. I enjoy helping my clients become empowered and master assertiveness.

I use my experience as a clinical sexologist and certified sex therapist to help couples and individuals from all sexual orientations and genders. Together we'll work to manage your concerns and questions about sexual function, sexuality, and sexual expression. Some of my areas expertise include, dysfunctional sexual problems, erectile dysfunction, orgasm difficulties, desire and arousal challenges, sexual abuse and trauma, sexual compulsivity and addiction, sex education, and sexual pain. I also help couples and individuals who simply want to improve their sex lives.

Together my husband and I offer couples coaching and counseling services. We work together as a husband/wife team, offering a balanced male/female perspective to our clients. We've helped clients deal with a variety of sexual and relationship challenges.
