Certified Clinical Sexologist & Sexuality Counselor

 Let’s face it, being in a relationship isn’t always easy.  At one time or another everyone goes through difficulty with their spouse or significant other.  Finding a way to have a successful happy relationship over a long period of time is a challenge for most people. 


Hello and welcome to my website “The Happy Spouse” my name is Dr. Dawn Michael, I am an aasect certified sexuality counselor and certified clinical sexologist.  My mission is to help you take the guess work out of your relationship and help you to resolve any problems you may be having with your sex life.  If you are ready to bring more passion into your life and create a deeper intimate relationship then you have come to the right place.


Visit me at my beautiful office located in Thousand Oaks California, in the comfort of a safe and relaxing environment.



Each counseling session is interactive, providing solutions to your problems through an individualized plan that is just for you.  Our first session is about getting to know your sex history, sex education and your personal issues, that is why I devote 80 minutes to each new client or couple I first meet.  Some people need help spicing up their sex lives, while others may be experiencing sexual problems that prevent them from having sex at all or meeting that special someone.  If you find that sex has become painful, frustrating or a duty then I can help you.  Perhaps one of you in the relationship wants sex more often than the other creating a mismatched sex drive?  Some couples need help repairing a marriage after infidelity or are interested in other options.  One problem that is common is the use of pornography and how that can impact a relationship.  The birth of a child can be a wonderful experience, but can create problems on a couples sex life, that can go on for years without proper resolution.  I can help you to make the decisions as to when the little one needs to leave the marriage bed or the right time to have sex after birth.  Perhaps hormones are playing a role in lack of desire.  Couples often ask for advanced sex education information and understanding how the body functions sexually as we age, or have developed a medical condition impeding sexual function.  How does a person know if they are experiencing erectile dysfunction due to a health issue or just anxiety?  Perhaps one of you has a secret fetish or fantasy that is causing problems with your sex life or you are questioning your sexual identity?  Perhaps you are struggling in a sexless marriage and have given up all hope, I can help you.  In my new book My Husband Wont Have Sex With Me, we talk about both men and women struggling with the idea of a sexless marriage.  Regardless of your relationship status I help individuals as well as couples in all areas of sexual function.

  No sexual problem that you may be experiencing is too big or complicated for me to help you with.  I have 19 years of counseling experience working with couples that have many different challenges in their relationship and sex lives.
