Individual Counseling, Couples Counseling and Sex Therapy



Hello! I’m Dr. Barb LoFrisco. I provide couples therapy and sex therapy in Tampa, FL. I work with individuals and couples who are having relationship and/or sexual issues. I also help people overcome anxiety and depression.

Helping individuals and couples is my passion and purpose in life.  I have never regretted leaving Corporate America in 2004 to pursue my dream of becoming a counselor.  I learn and grow daily, and it is an honor when people allow me into their lives.

For more details on the services I provide, please see the navigation tabs on the top. I’ve also created a little video further down the page to explain the counseling process. Feel free to call me with any questions you may have, either about my services, my credentials or my method of providing therapy.
