Who am I? Let's see...
I am an ordinary person who had what I believe to be an extraordinary job. I am one of those lucky people who got to do what I am passionate about; fostering and educating people not only about sexuality but the authenticity that makes great sex possible. I decided to specialize in sex therapy because of the couples I had worked with. I noticed that unless I brought up sex, the client would not. Once I did broach the subject of sex, the floodgates opened! Addressing sexuality gave me a more comprehensive picture of each partner and of the relationship itself. I consider it an honor that my clients trust me enough to reveal the more intimate aspects of their lives. I understand that it is risky to tell someone else what you truly desire. I also understand that vulnerability and transparency create an environment where erotic exploration is optimized. One of my well-honed skills is creating a safe environment where people can talk about sex and learn to communicate with their partners.
One of my clients once said to me, "I like you! You are REAL!" As a therapist and a supervisor, I am direct and sometimes compassionately blunt.
After providing sex therapy for 30 years, I have evolved. I am no longer seeing clients. My focus since 2020 has been supervising therapists who want to be AASECT certified, teaching Human Sexuality to undergraduates, giving presentations, providing consultation on sex therapy cases, and writing. I plan to retire from the sex therapy field by the end of 2024
