Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Are you disappointed with your close relationships? Your sex life? Are fears of getting hurt making it hard to relate to others? Are memories of painful experiences in the past, or mistrust interfering with intimacy?

I would like to help. Working together, we can improve your relationships in a way that fits you. We can help you to feel safe and confident, and to accept yourself.

I have devoted my life to understanding and improving intimate relationships. I have an M.A. in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University, and a Ph.D. in Sociology from Harvard University. I have published books on love and family life, including Love in America. I am working towards AASECT certification as a sex therapist. Please contact me for a free 15 minute information session.
