WELCOME

I’m Martha Kauppi, a licensed marriage and family therapist and AASECT-certified sex therapist.

I want more than anything to help people negotiate the most intimate aspects of their most personal relationships. That’s why I’ve founded the Institute for Relational Intimacy. The Institute encompasses my own psychotherapy practice as well as my unique approach to training other therapists to work effectively with sex issues.

Hear Martha discuss working with desire discrepancy on Shane Birkel’s podcast The Couples Therapist Couch.
