Find yourself in sex therapy
Launch a journey of self discovery through mindfulness, accountability, consistency, and communication.
Healing comes from within
Men are from Mars, women are from Venus. Remember that one?
Well nowadays we recognize gender fluidity—which means there are infinite perspectives, sexualities, and love languages.
Mix that in with complicated individual backgrounds of experiences and memories—good & bad—and it’s a wonder we can connect with anyone at all.
Communication and openness are more important than ever, as alternate versions of relationships and love (with self and others) become more prevalent.
Sometimes making it work requires professional mediation.
What that means is, I know first-hand how trauma manifests itself as PTSD symptoms, and how the right therapist can help untangle the emotions, triggers, and anxiety that interfere with mental and sexual health.
I know what it’s like to expose vulnerabilities to a therapist; what it takes to trust someone to listen without judgment.
And I know how it feels to be empowered by sex-positive therapy and guided self-discovery. That’s why I’m here.
