Our team approach will ensure our clients are given comprehensive and expert care for s*x and relationship issues. She is available now via Telehealth only.
11 Lessons from Telehealth -
Telehealth has changed me personally and professionally. I have learned much from experimenting with it, and I want to share some of my thoughts with the community.
Empathy helps us hone into the real problems that must be addressed. But it is a dereliction of our duty and a violation of our ethics to empathize without the necessary action steps required to change the circumstances that hurt them in the first place.
I joined Dr. Raissa Miller and Dr. Dee Ray to discuss the unique challenges and ethics of moving to Telehealth during the COVID-19 crisis. We are mandated to make this move thoughtfully:
It looks like the reality of COVID-19’s spread in Dallas is settling in. Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins ordered us to stay inside, and, although it pains us all, I agree with the assessment that staying inside is necessary. The toll of this virus and our response to it is impacting all of us, and many are suffering. To help, I am announcing my return to General Mental Healthcare treatment, for a time. Since focusing on s*x and relationships I have not offered services to those with other needs; however, we need all hands on deck right now, and I am happy to help. For the time being, I will deliver these services via Telehealth (online video).
Concurrently, I am offering a discount to those in financial distress (existing and new clients) and to first responders to the pandemic, including fire, police, and healthcare personnel. If you know of someone in distress who needs help but cannot afford services, please tell them to reach out to me, and I will help as best I can.

We are all in this together, and I am glad that we have each other. Please, don’t stay isolated. Let me know if you need anything.
"Being brave makes a difference not because it solves every problem or eliminates risk, but because it turns risk into hope. There is no hope without bravery and no change without small acts of hope."
I’ve heard it a million times if I’ve heard it once. “Erectile dysfunction is ruining our s*x life.” My response is always, “No, it isn’t.”
For many who endure a s*xless relationship, s*x is harder than the alternative. It’s not an oasis of connection, an escape from the pressures of life, an intimate getaway for those precious 30 minutes. It’s another job, another burden, another pressure, another thing to fail at...But because life is too hard, we need s*x to help make it bearable. To give our minds and hearts and bodies a rest from pressure, anxiety, and worry. Life is too busy for a s*xless marriage.
