As a clinical sexologist, I work with individuals and couples to help them address sexuality issues and work toward overcoming them. My goal is to do all I can to strengthen and reinforce the marriage bond.
Much of what Latter-day Saints learn about appropriate sexuality originates both from both church teachings and tradition.
As an LDS sexologist, I have learned that the understanding and teaching about sexuality among Latter-day Saints varies widely. Such a disparity may result from a lack of communication and from a variance of traditions and interpretations.
I am happy to meet with couples or their bishop to answer any questions about my practice. I am available by phone, or you are welcome to make an appointment at my office in the San Antonio Medical Center.
I provide information that in accurate but not obscene, and in harmony with Gospel teachings. We can address a wide variety of topics including:
Lack of desire.
Adapting to health issues.
Moving forward from pornography use.
Dealing with shame and guilt.
