You Deserve Exactly What You Desire

Is Your Sex Life Non-Existent?
Is the fire lost?
Feeling Frustrated and Alone?


Life happens and our sex life and relationships are often the first to be tossed the side.

Lies, being polite, avoiding reality – are all probably not working.
Let’s try something else that DOES WORK


Are you frustrated by any of these:

Are you looking to:

  • Rekindle your sex life
  • Improve your communication with your partner
  • Moving forward after infidelity
  • Explore new avenues of your sexuality
  • Take bold steps in dating
  • Explore new dimensions in your relationship (poly, consensual non monogamy, BDSM)

The Good News Is There’s Many Proven Strategies To Improve Your Sexual Wellbeing

I can sharpen you and/or your partner’s skills to improve your sexual wellbeing by not just talking about it, but taking concrete actions that move your forward to experience sexuality the way you desire.  Sex therapy and/or couples therapy can support you and your partner to enhance sexual wellbeing and relationship satisfaction while being respectful of your world views and beliefs using evidence-based techniques.

I believe that everyone’s sexuality is unique and that rather than categories, sexuality is a spectrum.  I not only welcome individuals from all sexual orientations and identities, my research was the first to develop a psychosexual resource specifically tailored for same-sex attracted cancer survivors, Rekindle.  Building from this work and integrating my health disparities research, I developed and am testing the first psychosexual resource for Latina cancer survivors, Aviva.

It’s not going to be easy, but it probably isn’t already

We can work individually or
in couples therapy,
whichever is most convenient.


Yes, that’s right.  It can be tough to coordinate schedules or get your partner on board with therapy, so it’s ok to come on your own.  Research has shown relationship improvements in both individual and couples therapy.

Hi, I’m Catalina.

I’ve been working as a clinician, researcher and professor for the past 20 years addressing sex and relationships.  I believe our sexuality is at the core of our existence, but also the first thing to get tossed to the side.

I have developed and tested numerous psychosocial interventions to support individuals and couples improve their sexual wellbeing and relationships.

As the lead investigator for Rekindle we bridged the gap to deliver  psychosexual support to cancer survivors and their partners throughout  Australia.  We are building on this work to further refine Rekindle for LGBTQ populations.

My team and I are also developing a new app, Aviva, the first psychosexual resource for Latina cancer survivors.  We’re testing this across the country, so keep an eye out.

Interview with The Lily

Sex after 40.  Exciting, Daunting, Juicy, Dry, Different- these are all adjectives I've heard women describe sex across every decade.  As we evolve, our sexuality evolves with it.  But how?   I was delighted to be interviewed by Nneka McGuire to answer questions about...
