My Journey in Sex Therapy

I have dedicated my career to helping individuals and couples maximize their love life. Through my books, podcast, blog, workshops, therapy sessions, and online courses, I love sharing empowering knowledge about relationships, passion, and sex with people everywhere. 

Some of the areas I work on with couples are relationship stalemate, repairing love after an affair, and overcoming inhibitions and fears in the bedroom. I teach couples how to rediscover that connection, spark, and romance so they can take their relationship to new heights. With clients, I often also work through issues surrounding trust and intimacy, low desire, gender and sexual orientation, and sexual dysfunction, including early ejaculation, orgasm difficulties, and painful sex. Everyone has the right to feel confident, sexy, and satisfied in the bedroom, and I aim to help people on their journey to sexual fulfillment. 

Besides writing my own books, I enjoy regularly contributing to women’s magazines like Cosmo, Glamour, and more. Additionally, I share expert tips on my Instagram, @drlauraberman, and through my podcast, The Language of Love. 

At Flo, I advise on content about sexuality, love, and relationships to help even more women achieve their full sexual potential.
