Many people may find it difficult to address sexual health concerns. And if you are a person that values sexual response - desire, arousal and orgasm and have been experiencing sexual discomfort. Here's how CLEsextherapist@twitter.com can help.
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, counselors and therapists) certified sex therapist. I treat individuals and couples that present with problems concerning sex, sexuality and sexual health. And I also treat those individuals and couples that don't but are distressed about the quality and satisfaction of their relationship or martial system. My clinical interest is treating male and female sexual matters, sexual dysfunctions, sexual disorders and gender dysphoria in the context of medical conditions, aging, disability, gender constraints, sexual identity & development and relationship satisfaction. I’m committed to serving the spectrum of variations in human sexuality.
Sex therapy is a specialized form of psychotherapy that draws upon an array of technical interventions known to effectively treat male and female sexual dysfunction and other psychosexual conditions.
Sex therapists are trained to diagnose and treat the psychological origins of sexual issues and work to find solutions.
My goal is to strengthen your desired level of sexual function, fulfillment and pleasure that ameliorates quality of life.

Sexology research has informed us that sexuality plays a significant part in individuals quality of life, and that sexual difficulties cause both emotional and physical distress.
In my work with clients, sexuality and sexual expression are viewed through an ecological perspective that embodies not just male and female genitalia and their function, but all the dimensions of a person -biological, psychological, emotional, social, cultural, relational and spiritual.
Do you feel guilty, ashamed, or embarrassed about your sexual response? Or you've simply, ignored it?
Over the course of the lifespan stress, trauma, anxiety, aging, medicine, interpersonal experiences and other factors can often impact a person’s sexual response.
Sex therapy helps to unravel and overcome these challenges. I am here to help you achieve that desired level of sexual function and pleasure in your life.
