Dr. Chavez's mind/body approach has truly worked wonders in my sex life, and this is the happiest I have seen my wife in a long time!


Working with Dr. Chavez taught me that menopause is not the end of your sensual life but a new beginning.


Her insight is amazing and I always felt supported after my divorce from my husband.

A nationally recognized expert, therapist, and educator specializing in “all things sexuality.”


Whatever statistics you’ve read about the prevalence of “sexual dysfunction”, forget them. This is the only one you need to remember: 100% of people have sexual concerns at some point in their lives. But as you might guess, many of them never talk about or address those concerns.

You are normal.

Humans are relational and sensual beings. We all have needs for love, affection, and sexual intimacy. These needs should not be ignored or abused; instead, we should seek to understand and fulfill them in healthy, appropriate ways.

Unfortunately, for most people, the topic of sexuality is embarrassing, uncomfortable, or even taboo. But the inability to discuss sexual concerns and problems may be the most significant barrier to achieving sexual health and wellness.

Sexual health is a critical component of overall health and well-being, so chances are if you aren’t functioning properly or sexually fulfilled, other areas of your life are being affected as well (or vice versa).

My mission is to help individuals, and couples overcome their misconceptions and personal barriers to achieve greater sexual health, wellness, and satisfaction through proper education, open communication, self-discovery, and healing from past traumas.

Your sessions are entirely confidential. Please contact me for a phone consultation to discuss your needs.
