Lesbian Couples Coach and Relationship Expert Therapist
I hold a Ph.D. in Clinical Sexology from the American Academy of Clinical Sexologists (the study of sex), a Masters of Social Work from Indiana University-Purdue University, and I am a Certified Imago Therapist. My dissertation was on the Correlation between Sexual Frequency and Relationship Satisfaction among Lesbians. I am specialized in the care of lesbian couples, especially, but all couples in general. I am also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Indiana, and I have been a lesbian couples coach for over two decades. Though I specialize as a lesbian couples coach, many heterosexual couples and individuals will write to me asking if I also work with heterosexuals. The answer is YES, I do work with heterosexuals too!
This is where lesbian couples come to get the insight and skills you need to put your relationship on track and make sure it stays on track. My goal is to help both of you FEEL the way you want to feel in your most important relationship. How we feel is what moves us toward our partner when it’s good, and what moves us away from each other when it’s not good. Though I identify as a lesbian couples coach, I am certified as a licensed therapist in Indiana and will provide counseling upon request. For those residing outside of Indiana, my services are limited to couples coaching only. Relationship services include premarital or marriage preparation counseling, couples therapy, affair recovery or other traumatic relationship events in need of repair, discernment counseling to decide whether to stay or leave the relationship and uncoupling counseling to support you in a kind and intentional exit from your relationship.
