Relationship therapists once routinely referred clients with sexual problems to sex therapists. David Schnarch & Ruth Morehouse, (Ph.Ds) with whom I trained and consulted from 1998-2008, pioneered the integration of relationship and sex therapy in the early 1990s. (see Therapy Links)
Sexuality is a major area of the human self. In relationships, how people manage their erotic & sexual differences is a primary narrative. After learning personal sexual, relational, social & medical histories, I work with clients individually & together to achieve their goals.
In 2008 I began two years of training, consultation & supervision with James “Jim” Maddock (AASECT President 1987-89), a brilliant clinician, educator and sexologist, and his wife & clinic partner Noel Larson. They combined systemic training with a humanity that I remember well.
