Sex Therapy Online Now

Sex Therapy Online Now

Online therapy may be different from in person therapy, but “different” does not mean “unequal.” Working with people on a confidential, HIPAA compliant platform, I am able to connect with clients using my years of experience as a psychologist. You may be in your home, but you are still visiting me in my office, where I maintain the same level of warmth and professionalism.

It is easy to hop onto the online therapy session to get help for almost any kind of sexual problem–whether you are an individual or a couple. Just click on a link sent to your email address, and you’re in. In the first session, I will do my best to make you feel comfortable so that we can both be open and get to know one another. Then, I’ll ask you about what’s bothering you, and take a history.

Just like in-person sex therapy, we will work together for as long as it takes for you to experience improvement–no more symptoms, and feeling better about yourself–lighter and happier. Most people who invest time and energy into psychotherapy are happy with their decision. Although it is unethical to make guarantees, I offer 20 years of experience as an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist and Supervisor. Call me today at 800-769-9342 to get help for sex and relationship problems, confidentially and online. Serving all of Southern California.
