Feeling hopeless, disconnected, disappointed or even trapped in your relationship? It doesn’t have to be this way…

  • Do you dread coming home from work because you don't want to get into another fight with your partner?
  • Do you want to have more sex but your partner doesn't and you are tired of being turned down?
  • Have you lost your confidence in the bedroom and sex makes you anxious, so you avoid it?
  • Are you frustrated with not being able to orgasm?
  • Has sex become boring and you have tried everything to spice it up?
  • Are you experiencing pain during or after sex?
  • Do you wonder if your partner even loves you anymore because work seems to be more important than you?
  • An affair has happened and you are wondering how you can ever trust again?

My name is Dr. Nagma V. Clark and I am a licensed psychotherapist (LPCC # 2744), with a doctoral degree in sex therapy and advanced training in couples therapy. I specialize in helping couples & individuals achieve a fulfilling sexual connection, overcome infidelity, heal from past resentments, learn to love again, strengthen their emotional bond, and become partners in the true sense- have each other’s back, make each other the top priority, become each other’s rock & anchor and love each other unconditionally.  Having endured & overcome extreme childhood adversity, dysfunctional familial dynamics, failed romantic relationships-  I know what it feels like to be stuck in an unhappy relationship, to not be able to trust or feel safe, to be rejected and feel as if you don't even exist for your partner.

A counseling or therapeutic relationship is just like any other relationship- it has to be a good fit in order for it to succeed. I invite you to contact me to schedule a free phone consultation to determine if we would be a good mutual fit and discuss how we can collaborate to help you heal yourself and your relationships. If you decide against contacting me or determine that we are not a good mutual fit, I encourage you to browse my blog for articles offering helpful tips for improving sexual connection, navigating relationship distress, and overcoming barriers to personal growth.

When it comes to relationships, a wait and see approach is not always the best. Seek counseling now if:

  • The only thing you and your partner share is a roof, living separate lives.
  • Sex has become a touchy topic and you or your partner either avoid it or engage in it reluctantly.
  • You are afraid to initiate sex because you don't want to be rejected.
  • Your desire to have sex has really gone down.
  • You are unsure of your love for your partner.
  • Your fights are becoming more explosive than ever.
  • You feel on edge around your partner and no matter what you do appears to be not good enough.
  • You are looking for a way out of the relationship.
  • An affair has happened or you are thinking about having one.
  • Being alone feels better than being with your partner.
  • Communication is challenging and it feels safer to not express your feelings.
  • You have been in a series of unhealthy, toxic relationships and don’t know how to stop repeating the same pattern.
