About Dr. Janet Brito

Helping individuals, couples, and people in relationships challenged with sexual and gender difficulties feel less scared and prepared for the next adventure.

AASECT Certified Sex Therapist & Supervisor;
Licensed in Clinical Psychology & Social Work.

Are you struggling to make things happen, feeling stressed, but desire to change and feel more connected? Therapy can help you feel better. Overall, I understand your desire to want to change, but feeling stuck. It’s complicated, isn’t it?

I’m a seasoned therapist, with over 20 years of experience, and ca help you. I am an AASECT-certified sex therapist & supervisor who also has a license in clinical psychology and social work.

My colleagues and friends say I am a good listener, passionate, empathic, and caring.

By meeting regularly, talking about what is bothering you, getting honest feedback, and doing some exercises at home, you are likely to gain clarity about what needs to change, feel the motivation and energy to make some shifts, and put an end to limiting patterns that hold you back.

Like many of the people who seek the services of a sex therapist, you may feel embarrassed talking about your concerns. I assure you, though, that it is quite normal to feel that way.

Fortunately, my extensive training, in particular at the University of Michigan Sexual Health Certificate Program and then at the Program in Human Sexuality at the University of Minnesota Medical School has prepared me well.

Because I have helped many people going through similar experiences like you, you can rest assured that you will feel safe, heard, encouraged, and empowered to change.

Being a therapist is a privilege I appreciate every day, and I look forward to continuing my life’s work by helping you experience a life full of self-acceptance, pleasure, and peace.

Best,


Dr. Janet Brito
