What is Clinical Sexology?
A clinical sexologist is a sexologist who offers sex counseling, coaching, and education to assist people towards understanding and accepting themselves as sexual beings and to encourage them towards their sexual goals.
What is Adult Sex Education?
For many years, I have taught adult sexuality education classes and workshops. I have also given lectures, presentations, and workshops for college-level students. What I see time and again is that people have grown up without basic knowledge of human sexuality.
What is your approach to sexuality counseling?
My work as a Sex Educator & Clinical Sexologist is a specialty practice that deals with issues specifically around sexuality from a sex-positive, non-judgmental and shame-free paradigm of healing.
Do you work with LGBTQAIQ folks?
Yes! I work with everybody and have extensive knowledge and training with the LGBTQ population. If you are an individual or a couple you will find that I hold a safe container for discussing issues that may be specifically relevant to your gender identity and expression and sexual preference. If you identify as questioning or asexual you will find that I hold a non-judgemental space to explore those themes and questions in your life.
Can I do individual work if I am in a relationship?
Yes, I often see individuals who are in a relationship and who choose to first work on their own issues related to sexuality and intimacy before doing couples work.
Is this hands-on therapy or coaching?
I do not offer hands-on work. Most of the work we do together involves talking, setting goals and suggestions of HomePlay activities. If you are interested in working with someone who is a hands-on practitioner, I suggest you visit the Sexological Bodywork & Certified Sex Surrogate databases for a practitioner near you.
Do you take insurance?
I do not accept insurance at this time. As a sexuality specialist, my work is outside the scope of insurance carriers. Hopefully, one day this will change.
I am ready for sex education & consulting. How do I get started?
I’m glad you asked! I accept new clients who are ready and willing to do the work and who are a good match for working with me and my approach to sexual healing and empowerment. After an initial phone consultation, and if we are a match for working together, we will meet in person for a minimum of 5 sessions.
I am not ready for sessions right now. Do you have any free resources?
Yes! I highly recommend the San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI) hotline for accurate, shame-free and confidential answers to your questions around sexuality.
