"The more creativity you put into the picture that also makes it really hot," says Dr. Danielle Sheypuk. She works with both disabled and non-disabled patients to achieve better dating and sex lives. "So, and I like to say people with disabilities are creative. We've spent our whole life being creative. How to get around things. How to do things. How to make things accessible."
For her disabled patients, she is able to relate to them in a way that many other therapists might not be able to. Dr. Sheypuk has spinal muscular atrophy and is in a wheelchair.
