Whether you’re new in clinical practice or a seasoned vet, sexual issues can seem mystifying and uncomfortable. Through this consultation service, I aim to provide a helpful resource for practitioners to call upon when sexual issues arise that you’re unsure how to address.
My philosophy is that sexuality is an important part of an individual’s sense of self and well-being. Sexual problems can diminish that sense of self, thereby decreasing satisfaction in a relationship and life, overall. My orientation is not to focus on pathology per se but rather on the development of optimum health for the individual or couple. I look for solutions to people’s problems that will be practical and likely to be successful in their particular life situation.
As a sex therapist, I have worked with clients with all types of sexual problems including male and female dysfunction and dissatisfaction, sexual pain and trauma, lack of desire and desire discrepancy, gender identity/transgender issues, intimacy concerns for cancer survivors, and healthy aging.
Through faculty appointments at Dartmouth Medical School, Antioch University of New England, and University of New Hampshire, I have taught courses in sex therapy for psychiatry residents and psychology interns, master’s and doctoral clinical psychology students, and master’s students in marriage and family therapy. I also present workshops to professional groups and do public speaking on sexuality topics including intimacy issues for cancer survivors.
