My Approach to Helping

Do you and your partner have difficulty communicating and understanding each other? Are you struggling with anxiety or depressive symptoms? Or do you have sexual issues or concerns? Then, you've come to the right place!

I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Board Certified Clinical Sexologist, Certified Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist, Certified Anxiety Specialist and Relationship and Intimacy Counselor providing counseling and coaching services for adults in the Tampa Bay area.

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

As a Board Certified Clinical Sexologist, I help individuals and couples who are struggling with concerns and questions about their sexual functioning, sexuality, and sexual expression. Some of my areas of expertise include erectile dysfunction, orgasm difficulties, low sexual desire, arousal challenges, sexual abuse and trauma, sexual compulsivity, and sexual pain. I also help people who simply want to improve their sex lives.

Together, my husband and I offer couples counseling/coaching services for couples. We work together as a co-therapy, husband/wife team which provides a balanced male/female perspective. We help couples who are struggling with a variety of sexual and/or relationship issues.

My fee for individual therapy is $150.00 per 45-50 minute session. The fee for couples counseling is $225.00 per 60 minute session since my husband and I provide this service together.
