THE COUNSELING process
You, the client, are a full partner in counseling. Your honesty and effort are essential for success. It is my belief that the majority of the “work” in counseling occurs in between sessions, as you put into practice the insights and skills you have gained from counseling. We will work together as a team to define and work toward your goals. Initial counseling sessions will focus on exploring the concerns that brought you into counseling. We will determine appropriate objectives and develop goals. That plan may include referral to outside services. As counseling progresses, we will re-evaluate our plan and make adjustments as necessary.
My primary focus is sexual and relational problems at all stages of life. Areas of expertise include sexual dysfunction (especially rapid ejaculation, E.D. and orgasm difficulties, desire discrepancies), paraphilias and out-of-control sexual behavior. My approach to therapy is systemic and strengths‐based, with cognitive‐behavioral, and psychoanalytic elements.
