Barbara Alterowitz

Certified Sexuality Counselor




Co-author of 3 books on sexuality and cancer, the chapter on sexual rehabilitation after cancer in the professional reference guide


Sexual difficulties caused by cancer treatment, chronic disease and aging, including erectile dysfunction and female sexual dysfunction.


Having lived the experience of a marriage affected by cancer, I know that cancer hits at the very core of our being, and can deeply affect the intimacy between a couple. Chronic diseases and aging often have similar effects. My goal is to help the individual or couple regain their balance and successfully rebuild their sexual self and their emotional and sexual intimacy as quickly as possible. Counseling is typically short-term and can be done in person, over the phone or Skype. Counseling is available for straight, gay and bisexual individuals and couples.


By appointment. Some evening and weekend hours available.
