At Penuma, we understand that choosing the right treatment option for your needs is an important decision. Our ongoing commitment to providing the best resources for our patients includes not only our innovative Penuma implant, but also providing you a list of potential professionals who can help support and guide you through the process. We encourage all prospective Penuma patients to engage in therapy before the procedure. In this section, we share a list of third party, independent sex therapists who can offer support, guidance, and expert advice as you consider your options.
Dr. Hannah Golestaneh is a licensed clinical psychologist based in California with knowledge of the Himplant procedure, its results, and expectations. Her expertise is in treating anxiety, trauma, panic disorder, and issues related to sexual health and intimate relationships.
Dr. Golestaneh offers virtual and in-person sessions to accommodate her patient's needs.
The Center for Healthy Sex is a team of sex therapists who have familiarity with the Penuma procedure, its results, and expectations. They specialize in providing support for individuals considering or undergoing penile implant surgery, ensuring that patients feel informed, confident, and empowered throughout the process.
To accommodate the diverse needs of our patients, the Center for Healthy Sex offers virtual screening sessions that allow you to connect with a therapist from home. These sessions are designed to address your concerns, answer questions, and provide valuable insights into the Penuma implant and the impact it can have on your sexual health and well-being.
Dr. Molly Mercer is a sex therapist based in Naples, Florida, with knowledge of the Penuma procedure, its results, and expectations. Her expertise is in sexual health and intimate relationships.

Following your appointment, the therapists and your Penuma surgeon will collaborate to ensure that your emotional and physical needs are comprehensively addressed throughout your Penuma journey.
When selecting a sex therapist, it's essential to consider factors such as experience, credentials, location, and personal fit. We recommend contacting several therapists to discuss your concerns, ask about their approach, and determine whether they are a good match for your needs. Remember that the therapeutic relationship is built on trust and rapport, so take the time to find a professional with whom you feel comfortable and supported. Ultimately, the choice of which therapist to work with is solely yours as the patient.
