Paulina Colonna, LMFT

paulina colonna

Paulina Colonna is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).  Paulina enjoys working with sexual dysfunction, marriage/couples counseling, and the LBGT population.

Sex therapy primarily focuses on issues of desire, arousal, orgasm, and pain. This distinct form of therapy can assist couples and individuals in reassuring themselves in making healthy decisions to generate change.

Couples and family therapy addresses the unique influence of each of these systems on our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. These theoretical applications can work for the individual, couple, or family by unraveling negative or unhealthy aspects that we tend to inherit from our history or within a more current dynamic.

Paulina accepts Highmark Blue Shield, Magellan commercial plans, and Capital Blue Cross.
