Dr. Anya de Montigny, DHS

As a Sexuality Specialist with 20 years experience in the sexuality professions, I bring a wealth of knowledge, compassion, and empathy to my practice.

My lifelong desire to understand how the human body works and how we work together collectively to sustain health and happiness brought me to the world of sexuality education. I paid my way through school by doing massage including Tantra and Kinky erotic massage and learned everything there is to know about human sexuality both from an academic and hands-on standpoint.  I retired from hands-on works many years ago but not without a thorough understanding that somatic practices are the best and almost only way to create true change in the human body. I share my knowledge with individuals and couples and offer insider trade secrets on what “really works” when it comes to having better sex. I began teaching sexuality education at health venues in the Bay Area and abroad and had a podcast – The O Word Sex Talk Radio where I interviewed sexuality experts while getting a Doctor of Human Sexuality degree from The Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco.
