“When asked by other therapists what the most common sexual problem I hear from patients - my answer is simple, that either their past therapist never asked them questions about their sexuality or their therapist made a judgement about their sexuality. A big part of my job is spent undoing the damage caused by the ignorance or biases of therapists who aren't properly trained in sex therapy. My goal, to remind every person seeking to understand their sexuality that their sexuality is an inherently valuable part of who they are, and deserves a voice.”

“I have felt as though there has been something sexually wrong with me for years, with my body, how it functions, and how that impacted how I showed up in my marriage. I can't believe I have been living this way only to find out that my experience is shared by many men, and that I am not alone anymore.”

“In my case, being clinically trained to aid people to embrace their sexuality systemically has proven to be invaluable. I have also found that incorporating that training with spirituality is equally important for so many of my clients.  Regardless of the particular faith or sexual issues people may have, I believe my skill-set can help clients grow and heal so that they can embrace themselves as sexual beings.”

“It's funny that I felt safe in my trauma. The rapes I experienced taught me to hide myself from the pain in being vulnerable with the wrong people. I have been well protected for years. Through a combination of sex and marriage therapy, I have learned that I have also been protecting myself from the man I love for years, the man who has earned my heart. I am finally ready to face the realities of my past because I have my loving husband here with me to listen and to catch me.”

The practice of sex-couples therapy provides an opportunity for profound personal growth - much of which is spiritual growth.  A therapist is negligent when he or she does not seek advanced training in order to bring this opportunity to his or her clients.

“It’s so amazing to me that the same patterns we were doing in our communication dance we are doing in our sexual dance. This helps so much to unravel the patterns and get to the authentic connection we are trying to make in and out of the bedroom!”
