Certified Sex Therapist


I enjoy counseling from a positive, nonjudgmental, compassionate perspective.  My goal is to help clients through encouragement and respectful challenge to develop their strengths and competencies and to strengthen their connections to others. 

LorraineI provide guidance as a partner with individuals, couples, or families to help solve any unique issues they may have.   I enjoy helping couples to increase the level of emotional intimacy by offering a variety of tools, including but not limited to, communication skills.

Designed to meet the needs of clients, services may include education, one-time consultation, short-term/long-term therapy, and/or referral for medical evaluation.

Education includes:  Master of Social Work from the University of South Florida, Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from Skidmore University in New York.  I also completed advanced clinical postgraduate work in family therapy at the Family Therapy Practice Center in Washington, D. C.

As a licensed clinical social worker (#006236), I also hold Diplomate status as a Certified Sex Therapist through The American Board of Sexology and am member of SASH (www.sash.net).  I have been practicing for 17 years, and have taught at the University of S. Florida.   If you have a question, you may email me at lorraine.labarre@comcast.net
