While sexual expression is as varied as we are individuals, there are some common threads to our curiosities, worries, habits, and hang-ups. I work with men/women/couples to find solutions to their intimacy and sexuality concerns.
Below are some of the most common worries that folks need guidance to navigate, but if you do not find your issue on this list, please know there is no way to list every possibility.
· Desire discrepancy between partners
· Diminished sexual desire
· Negative body image/ body confidence
· Menopause related concerns
· Vulvovaginal dryness (outside & inside)
· Painful sex
· Loss of sexual confidence
· Diminished sexual arousal or response
· Changes in ability to find orgasm
· Premature ejaculation
· Erection changes or loss
· Intimacy changes due to natural aging
· Intimacy changes due to chronic health issues (cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, depression, medications, pain)
· Intimacy changes due to physical abilities
Prior to our first 50-minute appointment, you will have completed an online intake form during registration that I will review before our scheduled time.
During our first meeting, we will take time to get to know each other while reviewing your intake form and talking about the concerns that bring you in.
If you feel anxious prior to our first appointment, I get that. I want you to know that I have been caring for the human body and human conditions for 38 years. Talking about sexuality is not a skill most folks have had the opportunity to develop due to the many social messages we receive deeming the topic taboo. I want to hear your story and we will move forward at your pace. We will identify your individual/couple goals and begin to plot a course forward.
We will determine together the frequency of meeting and is largely based on the work required to meet your intimacy and sexual health goals.
A common pattern would be meeting every 2-4 weeks for 4 to 8 sessions. Some folks will desire more, some folks less. This is about you, so I don’t want to pre-determine your needs.
It is always my hope that a couple will approach concerns related to sexuality together, so YES! I also find value in allowing each individual their own talk space. Again, this is about you and your needs.
We are all born as a sexual being and remain sexual beings throughout our lifetime. You have a sexual body that deserves to be cared for and healthy, whether you are sharing sex with a partner or not.
No. Unfortunately there is not a private insurance/Medicare/Medicaid billing avenue available for my services. If you have an HSA account with your employer, you can utilize this for payment.
When registering, you will provide debit/credit card information and the appointment will be charged once our consult has been completed.
Yes. When you are scheduling your appointment online, you will have the option to choose a video telehealth.
Once registered, you will receive an email link for the appointment. If for some reason we have a connection complication, I will call the phone number listed in your demographic information to make an alternate plan.
Prior to the scheduled video telehealth appointment, please ensure that you have a private area to speak to protect your confidentiality. For liability protection, I will not be able meet with you if the area is not secured or if you are driving a car.
If you would like to request consideration for an appointment time outside of standard business hours, please request a complimentary 15-minute telephone call to see if we can find a time that works for both of us! I understand that life works on many schedules, so I commit to remaining flexible.
