ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A THERAPIST?
Are there aspects of your relationship you would like to strengthen?
Are you struggling with who you are, want to be, or are expected to be?
Do you have health issues, belief systems, or relationship challenges that create blocks to sexual expression?
Are you experiencing a loss of passion or a sense of disconnect in your intimate relationship?
Does your life feel less creative and zesty than you would like?
I would love to help.
I believe that relationships—with ourselves, our families, our partners, our cultures, and our communities—form the context for life and provide some of the richest material for both joy and struggle.
Improving any of our relationships improves every aspect of life. I am a skilled relationship counselor, and I love to work with individuals and intimate partnerships addressing relational challenges, improving communication between partners, exploring improved intimate connection, and increasing a sense of joy in life.
MARTHA’S SPECIALIZATION & TRAINING
I have specialized training in all aspects of sexuality, including LGBTQAI+ and gender issues, and I stay up to date on the latest research, developments, and resources in the fields of sexology and sexual health. My background in health care as a midwife gives me a deep understanding of sexual function, which in turn informs effective treatment of sexual dysfunction.
I have trained for six years with Ellyn Bader and Peter Pearson who created the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy. This model integrates attachment, differentiation and neuroscience, resulting an extremely effective approach to relational challenges.
