Her sexual enhancement program, 21 Days of Provocative Passion Fixes, was featured in Redbook magazine.
Dr. Pasahow’s unique approach to working with couples’ issues and their sexual problems combines years of sex therapy experience with cutting-edge research in neuroscience (the study of the human brain), the biological need to bond with others and an understanding of human arousal behavior. Using a wide variety of creative techniques drawn from evidence based research makes her approach not only effective but also fun and exciting.
Dr. Pasahow, a specialist in the healing of trauma, uses a blend of both EMDR and Somatic Experiencing treatment to help individuals move gently through the effects of traumatic memories and experiences. This approach uses the body’s innate resiliency to provide complete healing and recovery. Evidence has shown that this approach is more effective than traditional talk therapy.
