Before I was in kindergarten, I remember asking my mother, “Isn’t there AAAANYTHING else about sex to know!!!” Mom wasn’t inappropriate – I was just always curious! Not surprisingly all of my girlfriends from childhood through college say I wisely chose the right field since sex had always been my favorite subject. Still is.
Now after sitting with literally thousands of couples and trying to help them get sex right, I’ve decided to take to podcasting to share what I’ve learned (plus I get to talk about it more!) – certainly about sexual technique with tips and tricks to help but more importantly with thoughts and theories about the deeper dynamics between couples. My heart’s commitment is to help make sex and love.
I’m a certified sex therapist and a licensed marriage counselor. To help women with low libido, I wrote a book called Wanting Sex Again – How to Rediscover Desire and Heal a Sexless Marriage and I formally blog with out 4 million reads (I know! People like to read about sex too!) on Psychology Today Online and WebMD. On this site’s blog – I let you into the mind of sex therapist – what I’m thinking about my work, what I’m learning about sex therapy, what frustrates me, what makes me feel successful with people, etc.
In my spare time, I lecture at the medical schools of Duke and UNC Chapel Hill on sexual functioning, direct a clinic with offices in 3 cities (and we do video conferencing on sex therapy around the world!)
What makes me happy? Sex, walking the dogs with my husband of 31 years and spending time with my kids.
