    "I'm glad you reached out today!" "I'm happy to help you!" These are phrases I often use to welcome people who call Center for Healthy Sex for help. I am here to connect people with the best therapists or the right referrals and resources. The phone consultations I provide are completely confidential, no cost, and take as little(or as much) time as needed to be certain each person is heard, understood, and helped in the best way possible. If you, or someone you know is struggling with sexual dysfunction issues, relationship difficulties, or if someone believes they might be suffering from sex or love addiction, reach out and talk to me; all it costs you is your time! I'll do my best to make recommendations to fit your needs and get you connected with professional support.
