Areas of Specialization:
As a Certified Sex Therapist I work with individuals and couples who are either having particular problems in their sexual functioning or who are unsatisfied with the quality and/or frequency of their sexual activity. I help clients with a wide range of sexual concerns, with special skills in couples issues, low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, rapid or delayed/inhibited ejaculation, women's anorgasmia and sexual inhibition, sexual trauma, and adults abused as children.
Office Hours:
Call (949-338-9525) to arrange an appointment time. I do my best to accommodate your schedule, with some some evening and Saturday appointments.
Philosophy:
I believe that sexuality is a primary component of human fulfillment and overall happiness and should not be ignored or rooted in fear or shame. I know that virtually all sexual problems and issues have solutions and can be resolved. My philosophy is that each individual already has the resources to overcome these issues, but may need help from a trained, empathetic and non-judgmental professional to achieve success. To facilitate this growth, I create a safe, warm, positive environment to provide the appropriate therapeutic services for individual and couples who have the courage to ask for help with their problems.
Other Information:
I also have extensive training and experience helping clients who are trapped in compulsive sexual behaviors, including SEX ADDICTION and PORN ADDICTION. And I help guide couples through the challenging process of facing and working through all kinds of INFIDELITY. See my website for more information on these areas of expertise.
