AASECT Certified Sex Therapist
There are many reasons why someone might choose to see a sex therapist. Some common reasons include:
Sexual dysfunction: This can include problems with arousal, orgasm, or pain during sex.
Sexual problems related to trauma: This can include problems with intimacy, trust, or sexual desire after experiencing sexual trauma.
Relationship problems: This can include problems with communication, conflict resolution, or sexual satisfaction.
Gender identity or sexual orientation issues: This can include questions about sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.
Sexual health concerns: This can include concerns about sexually transmitted infections (STIs), unplanned pregnancy, or fertility.
Sex therapists are trained to help people with a wide range of sexual issues. They can provide education, support, and therapy to help people improve their sexual health and relationships. If you are struggling with any of the issues listed above, or if you have any other sexual concerns, talking to a sex therapist can be a helpful way to get the support you need.

"You were so incredibly helpful to me during a low point in my life and in the first year of my marriage."
"I wanted to thank you for your work last year -- being given the space to self-reflect and confront those fundamental issues we discussed has been very helpful for me. It's a work in progress, of course, but I feel happier and more at-ease with my identity than I ever have."
"You are amazing. I miss working with you and you are the reason people get better and move forward!!"
Welcome to A New perspective
"The time will come
when, with elation,
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror,
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self." LOVE AFTER LOVE
