About  Joseli Alves-Dunkerson

Are relationships important to you? Do you find yourself stuck in a relationship, no matter what you do? Are you feeling disconnected, unattractive or overwhelmed? Are you and your partner disagreeing regularly or distant from each other? Are you looking for new ways to love yourself more and to have a healthier relationship and sex life? Are you and your partner at different levels of sexual desire? Are you facing any difficulties with sex? Are you facing infidelity and trust issues? Would you like to know more about successful relationships and sex in order to make better choices? Are you considering divorce but are not sure?  Or have you divorced recently and want to prepare for the next chapter of your life? Are you single and looking for better ways to live alone or to search for a partner who is a good fit for you?

All of these questions reflect the most common cases in my office. They represent the needs and desires of the human heart, and I can help.

I am a relationship therapist and a nationally certified AASECT sex therapist. I am trained in a variety of couples counseling approaches. I can help you take a different look at your relationship and sex life and suggest approaches for you to reach your goals. There is a lot of misunderstandings about these topics, and I can provide you with reliable, research-based information so that you can make your own educated life decisions. If spirituality, culture, or nationality is important to you, we can include in the therapy as well.

I believe in relationships, and they are the best way to help us to grow. At the same time, relationships can be complicated. Relating well to ourselves, our partner/spouse, our family, our friends requires good information, coping skills and an open mind. I will support you to reach your goals. I will listen to you in a respectful manner and without judgement, providing you a safe place to share your concerns and brainstorm solutions. I will provide you information that is reliable, research-based so that you can make your own life decisions. I will expect you to be committed to the therapy process so that you can reach your goals as soon as possible.  

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me for a courtesy phone call. I look forward to talking to you!
