I offer sex education and sexual enrichment programs for individuals and couples who want to improve or enhance their sexual relationships. Some common goals include recapturing lost sensuality; adjusting sexually to life changes such as health challenges, recovery from sexual assault, arousal disorders, menopause, change in relationship status, or motherhood; and becoming comfortable with one's own or a partner's sexuality.
