Dr. Viviana Coles
[9:18] “It’s a different way to use my skill set–that’s what I love about it. I can only see so many clients face-to-face…but in this situation, it’s wonderful because I get to reach so many more people who are struggling and don’t want to be struggling in a relationship, and they can learn from not only my expertise but from all the experts on our panel.”
[11:32] “I knew that I wanted to eventually get married and have children and have a career that would work with a home life, and I realized very quickly that, for me, having a private practice was the way to do that.”
[15:13] “What it typically looks like is helping each individual partner to figure out what it is that sex, intimacy, and emotional intimacy means to them, and then somehow create a narrative between the two of them that makes sense…When we work with these couples, it’s about helping them to realize that their sexual behaviors and extension of the feelings they have for each other and it’s an investment in their marriage.”
