I specialize in sex and relationships, and work towards bridging the gap between body and mind, and have been doing so for over a decade. My work is collaborative and though my training has been in psychotherapy and sex therapy, I also work with as a consultant, mentor or coach. Psychotherapy is about mental illness, but having questions and concerns in our sexual relational lives need not be treated as an illness. Sometimes we just need guidance, an ear, some helpful suggestions to break out of old habits of behavior and to shift perspective and patterns of thinking. I provide this for you in a relaxed and non judgmental space.
I am a licensed psychotherapist. I prefer to work more as a coach. I have offices in LA and NYC, but I also offer online, remote sessions via Skype, or phone regardless of location. Many people love this kind of work, it's flexibility and ease, but it is definitely not for everyone. If you feel you need traditional psychotherapy and treatment for mental illness then my services may not be right for you.

More Info About My Practice
Generally since I specialize in sex, I am chosen over a general psychotherapist, psychologist, psychiatrist, or other helping professional, when the issues are very specifically sex related, or when sexuality seems a central part of the issue. My specialty includes non monogamy, open relationships, polyamory, kink, alternative lifestyles. I also work with sexual trauma, lack of orgasm, difficulty with erections or ejaculation. Problems with differing levels of desire in a couple, infidelity. I am licensed in California, but also work in as a consultant or coach if you live elsewhere. I work with you online or via phone which offers great flexibility and many people love, but is not for everyone. My fee is $220 per hour.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I do a lot of work with couples. When couples work together, the problems are easier to recognize, and address therefor positive results are often quicker. Couples can hold each other accountable for both positive growth and aspects as well as the negatives as well. I also love working with sexual issues, in tandem. I find that there are a lot of myths and mis-education around sexuality, as well as a lot of embarrassment in talking about it, and shame and guilt about our feelings in terms of sex and sexuality. I think this all stems from and perpetuates our inability to talk about sex. Talking openly about sex is one thing I share with my clients, in a non-judgemental, corrective emotional experiential space, where we can talk about anything where, I will be the sounding board for my clients.
