CA Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (MFC #50718), human sexuality professor, sex columnist, past president of the Western Region for the Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality (SSSS) with a Doctor of Human Sexuality degree (D.H.S.) from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality (IASHS). My philosophy is centered on empathetic, sex-positive support with a special emphasis on pleasure enhancement. People deserve erotic fulfillment within their relationships & a place to explore ways to live a more authentic & enjoyable sexual lifestyle free of guilt, shame, & self-judgment. My practice is 50/50 with clients from the alt/kink world and clients working on their sexual concerns.
My work with erotic communities focuses on lifestyle introduction, exploration, & acceptance of unique of sexual expression, processing interpersonal relationships & experiences such as identity formation, coming out, & internalized anxieties for individuals, couples, & families of GQQ, Straight, Ally, BDSM, kink, fetish, sex work, adult industry, alternative sexual expression, poly, people of unique gender identities, orientations, & members of erotic communities. There are clinicians with more experience working with LBTI folks and its best to defer to their expertise. 
My work with sex therapy clients focuses on anxiety reduction, mindfulness, challenging sexual discomfort, sensate focus exercises, & pleasure education using insight-oriented psychotherapy methods for erection difficulties, early/premature ejaculation, performance anxiety, inhibited/delayed ejaculation, pre-orgasmia, low sexual desire, intimacy difficulties, communication problems, & partner relational concerns.
