I Believe

Are you ready for change?  So am I!  As a psychologist and AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, as well as Director of The Buehler Institute, I help women and their partners enjoy a more delightful and intimate relationship, both in and out of the bedroom.  Whether it's getting the right information or getting to the heart of a matter, clients value my style:  intuitive/empathic plus problem-solving/pragmatic.

From my private practice experience, however, I do know that some couples have more than their share of struggles due to problems like depression, eating disorders, trauma, and recovery from sexual abuse.  For those couples, I have written Sex, Love, and Mental Illness: A Couples' Guide to Staying Connected. 

For couples who are shy, confused, or sexual newbies, I have a frank but gentle ebook that has all the information you need to have a fabulous sex life.  A Heart-Pounding Guide to Passionage Sex is available now on amazon.  Don't own a kindle?  No worries, you can get a kindle app on your phone, tablet, or computer.  Download this relationship-saving book today, start having a better sex life tonight!

Perhaps you are a psychotherapist, psychiatrist, nurse, or other professional who wants to learn more about sex therapy.  For you, I have written What Every Mental Health Professional Needs to Know about Sex, a compact resource that every clinician should own.  Want to take a course live or through distance learning?  Visit my www.LearnSexTherapy.com website to learn about opportunities for courses in sex and relationship therapy.

I love to write, and I hope that the posts I provide here and on The Blog Erotic will help you in your journey toward self and relationship satisfaction.
