 As a specialist in the field of sexuality, I am well versed in working with a wide variety of issues that couples may face. These include affairs and infidelity, desire discordance, sexual frustrations and inability to enjoy intercourse, as well as problematic power dynamics within couples. I have extensive training in couples therapy and working with groups and systems and can locate deeper underlying issues within the relationship that may be concealed by petty arguments and conflicts. Feel free to contact me for a confidential consultation to assess the nature of the difficulties in your relationship, and create a treatment plan to get your relationship unstuck.

 As part of my  work with the Sexuality, Attachment and Trauma (SAT) Project , I have extensive experience in the treatment of sexual addiction and compulsivity. My colleague, Dr. Crocker, and I are thought leaders in this area, conducting cutting-edge research, presenting trainings and workshop around the country, and publishing extensively on this topic. We take an integrated approach, combining psychodynamic principles with evidence-based techniques, shown to be effective in working with sex addiction. We see our clients holistically, as complex individuals, with specific individual needs, and reject any kind of cookie-cutter or formulaic approaches.  In addition, we combine extensive education and training in sexuality as well as working with addictions, so we are able to incorporate the best elements in a complete, multi-disciplinary approach. To schedule a consultation, please contact me and I will be happy to discuss your specific situation with you.
 As part of my  work with the Sexuality, Attachment and Trauma (SAT) Project , I also specialize in the treatment of sexual trauma, including adult victims of sexual offenses as well as adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA).

If you are interested in exploring working with me, please contact me and I will be happy to discuss your specific situation with you.
I currently run an evening group for sexual compulsive men and will soon be adding two new groups– a young men’s group, which will focus on issues such as dating, sexuality, career, and developing a strong personal identity, and a group for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA). If you are interested in either group, please feel free to contact me directly to determine if working with me is the right fit for you.
