Make A Change For The Better

Rittenhouse Relationship and Sexual Health Center is my private practice where I offer compassionate, confidential, and competent individual, couple and sex therapy. I have over 25 years of experience in providing psychotherapy and teaching, as well as in training psychotherapists and sex therapists. My practice welcomes individuals from diverse backgrounds, including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity.

In my practice, I also provide supervision for aspiring clinical social workers (LCSW) and sex therapists (AASECT certification and AASECT approved supervisor certification). Additionally, I provide consultation to various health care providers on relational and sexual health. I am also an Associate Professor at the Center for Human Sexuality Studies at Widener University in Chester PA.
