Human Sexuality is multidimensional and fluid. Everyone has a unique subjective experience where issues of autonomy, authenticity, identity, shame, and power differentials permeate and may impact one’s life. Deconstructing language, themes, safety and consent issues that arise in sexualities and communities is an invitation to be curious about what sexual behavior is an expression of, not just what a sexual behavior is.

Dr. Cohen takes a biopsychosocial approach to understanding each individual’s unique erotic orientation and a positive approach to sexual behavior and sexual pleasure. She utilizes sexual history-taking, family genograms, the redefining of sex and sexual response cycles as vehicles to self-understanding and self-acceptance. Curiosity about arousal, desire, pleasure, satisfaction, intimacy, intercourse and afterplay can help patients overcome difficulties from performance anxiety to sexual trauma.
