My professional life is focused on providing information, education and counseling to people with cancer and their partners about sexual changes that can occur during and after treatment.
But there is another important aspect to this work; I want every cancer patient to be able to have a discussion about sexuality with their health care providers. And so I travel across North America (and soon Europe!) teaching health care providers to ask their patients about this important part of quality of life.
To reach those who cannot hear me talk and teach, I have written some books that will bring this message into the homes, offices and clinics of patients and care providers. To learn more about these books, click on the titles at the top of this page. You can also find out where I will be speaking next as well as seeing where I am publishing new articles.
If you need to know more about me and the work I do, or you want me to come to your city or town, health care facility or doctor’s office, contact me by email. I am always eager to spread the word and break the silence.
