Linda Weiner

As a licensed sex therapist I know your sexuality is a legitimate concern and believe that it is your right to receive expert knowledge when seeking assistance for relationship or sexual difficulties. I offer psychotherapy for general concerns, relationship coaching, couples' intensives and retreats as well as educational opportunities for professionals and groups. My couples' intensives and retreats teach and support ongoing intimacy in your relationship through mind/body connection and heart-centered relationship skills. My individual and couples therapy is designed to meet your goals and is a mutual undertaking between us.
