As an AASECT certified sex therapist and Gottman Certified Therapist I am interested in clinical research on the treatment of sexual health concerns in individuals and couples. I recently completed a 2 year randomized controlled trial at Mayo Clinic on the treatment of female sexual dysfunction using mindfulness and stress management. My overarching goal is the development of evidence based treatments for understudied sexual health concerns.
