Hi, I’m Dr. Viviana Coles
I am a Doctor of Marriage and Family Therapy and Certified Sex Therapist. My therapeutic approach is brief and solution-oriented, meaning that while I do recognize the importance of how my clients' problems have come about I place a higher value on offering my clients new and fresh solutions. Since 2003, I have exclusively focused on my work with couples and individuals experiencing personal and relationship difficulties, usually revolving around physical and sexual intimacy. I have built a thriving private practice providing relationship therapy, sex therapy and premarital counseling. I have systematized the programs that I offer in my office in order to help a broader clientele. My hope is that couples who are motivated to make changes but who are unable to receive my help in office will work my programs from the comfort of their own homes. I will make myself available to these online clients in the same way I do my in-office clients.
