Therapist in Dallas

If you’re dealing with an addiction, relationship with someone who has an addiction, or sexual and intimacy problems in your relationship, I can help. As a therapist who is certified in sex addiction therapy, as well as certified in sex therapy, I can help with a variety of sexual issues. Whether you’re in a relationship that is struggling with sexual intimacy, or you’re in a relationship that has put into jeopardy due to out-of-control sexual behavior, I have the experience to work with you so that you can have a fulfilling and happy relationship.

I specialize in helping clients with the following:

  • Sex and pornography addictions
  • Sexual orientation and self-acceptance
  • Gender care
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Trauma
  • Pain during sex
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Delayed ejaculation
  • Lack of sexual desire
  • Fetishes

You might be in a long-term relationship or marriage, and have just found out that your partner or spouse has been keeping sexual secrets that you never thought could have happened. Maybe you’re in a situation where you’ve been betraying the boundaries of your relationship, and you’re unsure of where to turn. Or maybe there has been no betrayal at all, but your sexual relationship has been suffering. Regardless of the relationship intimacy, trust, or passion situation that you are facing, I will help you open up lines of communication in your relationship, identify the problems for what they are, and help you strengthen your relationship like you hadn’t previously thought possible.
