LET’S TALK SEX with Dr. Barbara Winter

Although 43 percent of American women and 31 percent of American men suffer from sexual dysfunction, it’s not something people feel comfortable talking about.  Psychologist-Sexologist, Dr. Barbara Winter is. In fact, she has been ‘talking sex’ for over two decades in south florida. Within the confines of her office, she assists teens to elderly in managing most issues that arise at any stage of the sexual response cycle. She works with common problems that prevent the individual or couple from experiencing satisfaction from the sexual activity, such as low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction and ejaculation issues as well as less common problems such as transgender issues and fetishes.

Physiological/health problems and psychological barriers, ranging from depression, performance anxiety, marital issues and sexual trauma can be the cause.

Sexual addiction and Cybersex are huge issues.  “The prevelance of these issues is widespread and a reflection of the absence of intimacy in our world today”.

With her mission to improve emotional, sexual and spiritual health, Dr. Winter treats general issues from anxiety and depression, OCD, loss/grief counseling, anger management and post-traumatic stress disorder.  She has expertise with eating disorders, women’s issues and sexual abuse.

In addition to a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from NSU and a clinical internship from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Dr, Winter  has post doctoral training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, hypnosis and EMDR and is a Diplomate and Clinical Supervisor in Clinical Sexology.

With EMDR, trauma can be resolved quickly. With Hypnosis Dr Winter can help with all kinds of ailments, including trauma, anxiety and symptoms where traditional therapy has not worked.

Another one of her passions is helping families become effective. Dr. Winter works with families in transition and provides “Divorce Coaching” at all stages of divorce and re-organization including Marital/Family therapy, Divorce Counseling, Co-Parent Counseling and help with Blended Families.
