Sexual intimacy is a necessary and vital part of our relationships. Wanting to help others improve and nurture their intimate relationships arose from recognizing this in my own relationships. Concerns in this area are often uncomfortable, but my understanding and relational approach have helped me create a safe and trusting environment for this vulnerable work.
Working with the body to explore sexual issues within yourself or your relationship can be very powerful. My approach to sex therapy begins with exploring the ways in which you embody your sexuality. The ways we embody our sexuality and sexual desires look different for every individual. Concerns in this area are often uncomfortable, but my belief is that in order to be intimate in our relationships, we must know how to recognize our own wants, needs, and desires. How we relate to ourselves and others is what makes satisfying and healthy relationships.
