Sex Therapy  
"Bringing reason, compassion and understanding to human sexuality ."  
-Steven Ing 

I offer a welcoming environment in which to understand and examine your sexuality, relationship issues and concerns. Multiple dimensions of sexuality affect us throughout our lives. You may find that understanding yourself sexually and your ability to relate well in a sexual relationship difficult to talk about.

 
Sexual concerns do not exist in a vacuum. They are always connected to other issues within your self and your relationship. Many people who have sexual concerns feel that they may be alone in their challenge.  The good news is that you are not alone. I know how to help you enjoy the exciting benefits of sexual wellness. You will learn to use the tools and skills you already have while developing new, more successful relationship strategies.  I will help you understand and incorporate your eroticisms into your relationship. If you are single, you can learn skills to find a partner and to be able to communicate your desires.  Please read the following article by Dr. Marty Klein on the myths about sex therapy:  http://www.martyklein.com/myths-sex-therapy-dont-let-stop/

Substance Abuse Therapy

“What is addiction, really?” the Swiss psychologist Alice Miller asks. “It is a sign, a signal, a symptom of distress. It is a language that tells us about a plight that must be understood.” 

If you’re struggling to overcome an addiction, no one needs to tell you it’s tough – you’re living it. Sometimes you could use a few encouraging words to remind you that you’re not in this alone and that, yes, change really is possible.
