Sex & Relationship Therapist
Registered Associate Marriage & Family Therapist #113951
“I believe that all types of relationships can be healthy and fulfilling, as long as they are based on mutual respect, communication, and consent.”
Jakuta specializes in helping people feel confident about exploring themselves and
communicating their lived experiences authentically. He believes that challenges with dating,
anxiety, sexual health, trauma, and resolving conflict can best be helped through a collaborative
approach. He typically uses a combination of talk therapy, sex education, and experiential
techniques to help his clients improve their sexual and relational lives. He believes that one of
the most important aspects of sex therapy is creating a safe and non-judgmental environment
for his clients to explore their sexual concerns. This allows his clients to feel comfortable
discussing sensitive topics and to openly share their thoughts and feelings. Jakuta further
utilizes an existential and mindfulness-based therapeutic approach to help people manage their
anxiety and take control of their lives.
Jakuta’s interest in sexuality and dating began during his undergraduate studies at California
State University Northridge, where he received his bachelor’s degree in psychology. He
identified his challenges with talking to new people and dating. With the help of research and
exposure therapy, Jakuta was able to conquer his fears and create a dating support group for
other students struggling. He went on to earn his master’s degree in clinical psychology with an
emphasis in marriage and family therapy from Phillips Graduate University.
Before joining Togetherness Therapy, Jakuta provided therapy for individuals, couples, and
families, in a variety of settings including counseling centers, community mental health centers
during the COVID-19 pandemic, and residential treatment. At Togetherness Therapy he
provides a safe non-judgmental space for individuals and couples to explore challenges with
dating, communication, sexual dysfunction, sexual pain, low sexual or high sexual desire,
trauma, and other sexual issues.
