Increasingly, the sexual problems I see are exacerbated by hurry, worry, and stress. My emphasis is helping people regain passion and joy for themselves, each other, and life in general. Pleasure-enhancing psychosexual education is provided. Counseling is usually short-term, behaviorally oriented, and pragmatic. NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) and hypnotherapy are utilized where appropriate, especially in relief from sexual trauma. I am direct, real-world, empathetic and humorous. We work hard in therapy but laugh frequently.
