Out of Control Sexual Behavior

  • I understand how sometimes you may prefer to have an affair or watch porn, because it gives you an escape from your life, or your partner, because you don’t feel happy with either.

Sexual & Relationship Difficulties

  • I understand how hard it is to not be able to have sex like you want, feel mad at your partner for not meeting your needs, and feel guilty for wanting more. Or how frustrating it is when you can’t have an orgasm, or maintain an erection, or when you want to have sex more than your partner wants. It makes sense. Sex is part of life,and your body is supposed to work, and connection with your partner is supposed to be natural and flow.

Gender Identity

  • I also know that it is hard when you don’t feel at home in your body, when you don’t feel like yourself, but are worried to come out, and let others know you feel uncomfortable with your gender, for fear that you will be disowned. I understand the need to make things right, your desire to transition, but not knowing how to begin.


  • I understand how hard it feels when you can’t come out to your mom or best friend and tell them you are gay or lesbian or queer, and how lonely that feels. I understand how sometimes the shame leads to drinking more than you wish, empty sex, and missed connections.

Polyamorous | Kink | Non-monogamous | Open

  • I understand your fear with letting others know that you identify as polyamorous/kink or that you are in a non-monogamous, open relationship because you’ve been judged, told you were selfish, but you need help negotiating boundaries and expectations.


  • I understand that urgent yearning to have a child, but no matter how many times you schedule sex or how many treatments you do, you still can’t have a baby. I understand how you may feel like your body is betraying you.

Sex Work

  • I understand your need to have a safe space, to talk, and be listened to without judgment. I understand your struggle balancing it all.

Online Counseling

  • I understand you want your routine to improve, but can’t find the time to come into the office because your plate is overloaded with work, school, or kids.

Mindful Sex

  • I understand your desire to feel more relaxed, and your struggle with being present, choosing to zone out on your phone, instead of talking with your loved ones. I know you are very busy and have a hard time meditating, eating healthy, exercising, and spending time with your friends, and need help keeping to your self-care promise.
