"I have been counseling and educating individuals, couples and groups in the field of health and human sexuality for over 25 years. Sex is not an easy subject for most people to talk about and I try very hard to help make it easier. My intentions are to give you a safe place to express your unique erotic self, listen without judging you (sex-positive perspective) and offer the latest in research-based treatment options. I am welcoming and affirming of all sexual expressions, regardless of your sexual interests and orientation (straight, gay, bisexual, intersex, disabled, kink, mature, young, etc.) You can always count on me for on-going encouragement, a friendly nudge when you're stuck, and true delight in your growth and progress. We are in this together.
I work with depression and grief, trust and self-esteem, concerns about intimacy, alternative lifestyles, communication as well as psychological and emotional pain. Importantly, I strive to address individual and couple problems without bias and provide innovative solutions to individual and couples with unique issues.
I'm comfortable and very familiar with a wide range of lifestyles, values and attitudes, and my sense of humor and informality is sure to put you at ease. I know about other referral resources to help provide support in almost any situation."
Why did I specialize in sex therapy?
It was a natural progression for me. For several years, I was a counselor, educator and consultant in reproductive health. As a clinical social worker, I have been a forensic social worker and a consultant and executive to pharmaceutical and device companies for health and sexuality-related products and devices, specializing in conditions such as HIV/AIDS and breast cancer.
My current research interests include health and sexuality, particularly the impact of sleep disorders on sexual relationships.
I am one of the founders of a non-profit health research organization, documenting the health care needs of those with non-traditional sexual practices.
I love what I do!
My advanced education in therapy and sexuality began with an MSW (Masters in Social Work) from Boston University where I also began my MPH (Masters in Public Health) studies. I received my Doctorate in Human Sexuality as well as completed my MPH at the IASHS (Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality) in San Francisco.
I am member of SSSS (Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality) and am a clinical member of AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists.) I have given national presentations and regularly teach workshops and lead groups.
I am a registered Clinical Sexologist with the American College of Sexologists and Licensed in California as a Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) #70711
