My Approach to Helping

Sex and intimacy can be the most profoundly important and joyful areas of our lives. Too often, however, sex can become complicated, shame drenched and a source of real suffering. Most of us have some concerns and questions about desires, fantasies and our bodies. It's not so easy to feel sexually free and self accepting in a culture that sees sex as shameful and wherein most sex education and thus, unrealistic expectations ,come from hard core porn, which is not actually how REAL humans operate!
I am a Certified Relational Gestalt Therapist, have been trained in ERST, (Embodied Relational Sex Therapy)
and am a member of AASECT ( American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists) and NCSF. ( National Coalition for Sexual Freedom.)
