I am an AASECT certified Sex therapist and work with individuals and couples in areas with a wide range of issues. Many times a sexual functioning issue is rooted in relationship problems. Sex is a complex subject and there can be physiological, environmental or emotional elements that can contribute to the problem.
As a certified sex therapist, I often treat issues related to the relationship with a partner. Some of the areas include poor communication and not feeling connected. I work with heterosexual and gay couples in improving how they function together, becoming comfortable with communication and expression, and building connectedness and intimacy.
There is a broad range of issues that are traumatic. Most of these issues and the symptoms that they create are treatable. I often use EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Processing) in my work to treat trauma symptoms along with Cognitive Behavioral and Mindfulness techniques.
