Professional Philosophy:

I believe that all couples and individuals want the same thing – to feel connected and free at the same time. We are all born whole, and spend our lives trying to re-integrate all of our split off selves that have been dis-membered and compartmentalized throughout our lives due to shame and trauma around our desires and fantasies and that sexuality and relationships are natural and human in whatever form they manifest.

Range of Services/Programs Offered:

I work with couples and individuals in the areas of sexuality, affairs, and relationship therapy. I also supervise and train professionals to be certified as sex therapists and couples therapists.

I am currently Executive Director and primary Faculty at Institute for Sex and Human Development in Washington DC and teach classes for Sex Therapy U. Classes are held at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology in Washington DC and online.

Areas of Specialization:

I specialize in erotic recovery after infidelity, and sexuality of all kinds.

I am also the founder and primary faculty instructor for the Institute for Sexuality and Human Development, ISHD, a program offering teleclasses and webinars for therapists in the field of psychotherapy, sexuality and human development. I have taught hundreds of hours of teleseminars and online classes along with the top relationship experts in the field of human development and sexuality.
