When something isn’t right in your primary relationship, it can cause tremendous pain. In some cases, it can become all-consuming, because so much is at stake. When sex is involved, it can make things even more complex. Sex therapy and couples counseling can be extremely helpful. It can be a powerful process that creates relief, hope, and sustainable change. Couples come to sex therapy for many reasons. A few of the most common are:
- A gap in sexual desire
- Different erotic interests
- Issues related to sexual orientation or gender identity
- Sexual functioning or pain
- Open relationship issues
- BDSM, fetishes, and kink.
More importantly than the reason is the approach, methods, and processes I utilize to help you with the specific issue that you wish to resolve.
I match my approach to your needs. Couples counseling is not a one-size-fits-all approach, especially when sex is the issue. You won’t find me taking sides, as I am here to equally support each of you, no matter what transpired that brought you here. I work hard to make your sessions a positive experience for each of you. I take a strength-based approach to build on what is already positive about your relationship.
Couples counseling is a specialty in and of itself — part art, part science. My doctorate is in human sexuality, which I pair with my clinical training in Marriage & Family Therapy (MFT). A couple decades ago, I had the privilege of attending Denver Family Institute (DFI) in post-graduate studies for two years; taking classes, being filmed, and being observed behind the glass. DFI is a non-profit, 501c3 and one of the top leading MFT programs in the country. DFI shaped the strength-based, judgment free, accepting way I work with couples. At DFI, I learned many therapy methods and models. I taught Marriage & Family Therapy at DFI for 14 years. Recently I retired from teaching at DFI and I have proudly served as Board Chair for several years now as we celebrate our 40th anniversary in 2022.
Let’s get to work and see if we can make things feel better for you.

Please don’t let cost be the reason you don’t pursue therapy. I have trained other relationship therapists at the Cannon Institute who charge $75-150/session, and I am happy to make referrals to them, as well as to colleagues if that they better suit your needs.
