For Teens, Adults, Couples, and Families

For Teens, Adults, Couples, and Families

I bring to the therapy process a sex-positive perspective and I understand how important it is to be able to process all of our feelings without worrying about judgment. I have extensive training in the area of sexual health (including a Master’s degree in Human Sexuality Studies), as well as have published research in sexology. What this means is that I am very comfortable talking about sexuality and provide a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients.

Here is a link to my published Sexology research.

Sexual Health Definition
According to the current working definition (from the World Health Organization), sexual health is: “…a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. For sexual health to be attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be respected, protected and fulfilled.” (WHO, 2006a)
