Main Focus

In her private practice she specializes in the libido (human sexual desire/drive), arousal, and the enhancement of intimacy and joy through the creation of a personal eroticism. She follows her Ageless Sex philosophy – the physical expression of intimacy taking into consideration emotional needs, aging bodies, and health challenges. Making certain all people involved in the relationship are having their needs met.

Susana resides in Philadelphia, where she is known as the go-to person for information pertaining to sexuality. She is a frequent contributor to NPR radio and various podcasts as well as to online and print publications.
