Because Sex Matters

Good sex makes you feel good about yourself, and about each other. When sex isn’t good, both your self-regard and your relationship with your partner can be affected.

I’m a physician, specializing in sexual and relationship issues and their connection to emotional life.   I offer counseling for sexual and relationship problems in men, women, and couples – problems such as lack of sexual desire, trouble with intimate communication, difficulty with intercourse, sexual pain, erectile dysfunction, and premature ejaculation — based on over 20 years of practice in NYC helping people feel good again about lovemaking.

Some sexual problems can be resolved with just a few simple suggestions. Others are more complex, requiring more time and attention. I offer brief consultations as well as longer-term treatment, and work with individuals as well as couples.

Finding a sex therapist in New York City

Finding an accessible AASECT-certified sex therapist with the right experience and credentials isn’t easy – but this website is a good first step. While there’s no substitute for an in-person consultation, I hope this site will provide you with a sense of how I think and work. I invite you to visit my blog for further information about my approach to sexuality and its many links to emotional health.

Unlike most sex therapists, I am also an M.D. This can be crucially important since sexual issues lie at the border between the mind and the body.

If physical or emotional intimacy problems are holding you back…If you’ve already tried self-help, or even professional sex or relationship counseling, and gotten nowhere…I invite you to search through this website, and to consider making an appointment for a consultation.
