To listen to the so-called "sex addiction" experts, these public figures have succumbed to their most primitive desires by uncontrollable forces.

Maintaining an intimate relationship probably ranks as one of the most rewarding and also the most challenging activities in which you will likely engage. While you stand to derive terrific benefits from the companionship of a partner in life, you also make extremely painful prioritizations to your own values to make a relationship work over a long period of time. Whether in a traditional marriage or a same-sex couple, the issues are largely the same. I perform couples counseling with the intention of helping you and your partner to develop the skills and strengths that will make your relationship more satisfying.
As a therapist that works with couples and individuals, with a focus on intimacy and sexuality, I often work with people seeking deeper and more nourishing connections in their relationships and lives. Connection requires the courage to move into vulnerability and honesty to live one's truth about what they really need from their relationships. This is where I can help!

In this therapy, a client, a therapist and a surrogate partner form a three-person therapeutic team. The surrogate participates with the client in structured and unstructured experiences that are designed to build client self-awareness and skills in the areas of physical and emotional intimacy. These therapeutic experiences include partner work in relaxation, effective communication, sensual and sexual touching, and social skills training. As the days pass, clients find themselves becoming more relaxed, more open to feelings, and more comfortable with physical and emotional intimacy.
