To be human is to be sexual. Sexuality is an integral part of human development.
I began my journey as an LICSW therapist in 2003. In 2010, I started to specialize in Couples and Family Therapy and in 2019, I became an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist (CST). I noticed a need for clients to achieve life satisfaction and happiness through connection with their partners and family members. Exploring healthy sexuality, intimacy and passion are key factors in individual and relational growth.
Sex and Couples Therapy addresses a myriad of problems including substance abuse, trauma, relational anxiety, individual anxiety, depression, differences in desire levels, sex addiction, infidelity, disabilities, illness, sexual orientation and who we love, gender identity and more; even problems related to privilege. These are among the critical topics that, by and large, are missing from our national conversation. Sex, Couples and Family Therapy is the way to address them.

“I am a bit of DIYer, but we were 42 years into our relationship/marriage and facing a world of change. Newly retired after a lifetime of doing our own thing amplified our differences. The pandemic presented even more challenges. The house didn’t seem big enough for two big personalities. Thankfully, my wife isn’t a DIYer. She did extensive research (unbeknownst to me) and wrote Donna a letter, asking if she would consider taking us on as clients. What a gift. After 10 sessions, I am confident that we can make our relationship survive and thrive no matter what comes our way. Donna does her homework; she takes notes, and always circles back to what our goals were. She offered tools, provided exercises, made us practice new approaches, and provided feedback … all with a sense of humor. My wife and I are her biggest fans. If we ever need a tune-up, we know who to call. Thank you, Donna!“
“My husband and I saw Donna for multiple visits over about two months to help us deal with some issues with extended family. She was wonderful and I would highly recommend her services without hesitation.”
“Working with Donna changed my life. She’s compassionate, insightful, funny, and she teaches you how to make change happen by using concrete tools we practiced together. Working with Donna has allowed me to become the person I’ve always wanted to be, and to begin living the life I’ve always wanted to live. I can not recommend her highly enough.”
