Individual Counseling, Couples Counseling and Sex Therapy



Is your marriage in trouble? Would you like to have a better sex life with your partner? Are you feeling anxious or depressed? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Hello! I’m Dr. Barb LoFrisco. I provide couples counseling and sex therapy in Tampa, FL. I work with individuals who are having relationship and/or sexual issues. Sometimes, there are underlying causes involving anxiety and depression, so I work with that as well.

For more details on the services I provide, please see the navigation tabs on the top. I’ve also created a 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.

Client Testimonials

“Thank you Barb, I am more than so very satisfied with everything you continue to do for my wife and I.   Couples counseling has been excellent. Without Barb’s guidance and counseling I am certain our marriage would not have survived.  We are not where we want to be yet, but thanks to Barb’s counseling and insight I am hopeful that our marriage can survive the turmoil and we will have a stronger marriage because of it.  If not Barb has prepared us to go forward regardless of our marriage’s outcome.” – Male: couples therapy, December 2016
