Dr Marianne Brandon - Wellminds Wellbodies, LLC
Dr. Marianne Brandon is a Clinical Psychologist, licensed in Maryland, and a Diplomat in Sex Therapy through AASECT. She is the co-author with Andrew Goldstein, M.D. of,Reclaiming Desire: 4 Keys to Finding Your Lost Libido,the first book to not just talk about the existence of low desire, not just offer "quick fixes" like the long-overused "schedule time for sex" solution, but to really explain to women how complex their libido is (being affected by their intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and physical selves). For the vast majority (of women)...a decline in sex drive takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll. These women speak of feeling deficient, ashamed, sad, angry, anxious, or unfulfilled.

She is currently in private practice in the Baltimore / Annapolis area.

Dr Brandon is also licensed to practice in Washington D.C., New York, Arizona, and Missouri.

The following are among the issues in which Dr. Brandon has special interest and training: depression, low sexual desire, anxiety, stress, relationships, sex therapy, weight disorders, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. She has presented seminars to professionals and in the community on topics relating to personal growth, sex therapy, low libido in women, sexual dysfuncion, and on stress-related disorders such as depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.
