Marne’s Approach to Therapy
Marne uses cognitive behavioral and differentiation approaches to therapy. Looking through five "lenses" at all times, Marne focuses on the medical/biological aspects of sexual health, adult sex education (something we rarely get growing up), creating (and holding onto) clear thoughts and pictures of therapy goals, anxiety modulation (learning to live with awkwardness initially so you can move past your anxieties), having a clear sense of self (where the libido lives), and learning how to set (and let go of) boundaries in relationships and create the best you, and the best relationship, possible.
Marne has been married to her second husband for 27 years, is a mother of two grown sons, step-mother of two, and grandmother of many, none of whom wish to hear her speak about sex. However, Marne is available to speak to groups about Sexual Health.
