Endorsements for Rabbi Ed's Intimacy Coaching Services
"Rabbi Ed was frank and honest in his appraisal of my intimacy issues after I was treated for prostate cancer. With his guidance I’ve become more accepting of my erectile dysfunction and, more importantly, closer to my wife. Initially the treatment side effects I went through diminished my self-image and my sense of what it means to be a man. With Rabbi Ed’s intimacy coaching and vast knowledge I have come a long way in overcoming this self-defeating outlook. I became more comfortable with myself and happier with the expanded form of sexuality I explored with his help."
