Helping Couples Take the Stress out of Sex
Feel Like It’s Time to Make a Change in Your Life, But Can’t Seem to Find a Way?
I have devoted my therapy practice to helping couples develop the skills and capacity for true emotional intimacy, honest and productive communication, and a satisfying and engaging sex life.

I have extensive training in working with couples.
I have pursued extensive training, completing an intensive externship in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy as well as several multi-day clinical workshops in Crucible Therapy with David Schnarch and Ruth Morehouse.

Do you have some questions?
Here are some nuts and bolts about how therapy works.
How often do you want to see people?
Do you take insurance?
Keep in mind that most insurance does not cover couples counseling (a “V code” diagnosis of relational distress).
If one of you has a medical diagnosis (anxiety or depression, for example) AND therapy is aimed at treating that condition and enhanced by working with the partner, insurance may cover the services. In that case, I can provide the receipt you would need for out of network reimbursement for our work together. Please ask me if you would like a receipt.
It is up to you to check with your insurance plan about possible reimbursement for out of network services.
If your company requests more information than is provided on the receipt, I will provide a brief summary of treatment and an explanation of why further treatment would be beneficial; I will not provide a treatment plan or therapy notes. You retain ultimate responsibility for payment for services if your insurance company decides that this documentation does not meet their requirements for coverage of your treatment.
Are you taking new clients?
When do you see clients?
What do you charge?
I recommend an 80 minute session for work with couples and families.
Payment is due at the beginning of each session unless different arrangements have been made so that we can use the full session hour for counseling. I accept checks, credit cards, or exact amount in cash.
I am a certified sex therapist and couples’ counselor. I specialize in helping couples who have a good relationship but who are avoiding sex because it’s become stressful, negative, disappointing, or pressured. I educate, coach, and support people as they go through my 9-phase experiential process that allows them real world practice in changing their relationship and their sex life. I am the author of Sex Without Stress, the host of the Better Sex Podcast, and am a regularly featured expert in the media, including Refinery29, Business Insider, Mind Body Green, and Marriage.com.
