Event description


Being a therapist is a heart calling for most.

Many seek to serve and help clients heal, grow, and expand in powerful and graceful ways.

One thing I know is true.

As clinicians, we can only help our clients more powerfully when we ourselves are willing to grow, heal, and expand.

A common place where many clinicians struggle is the space of sex and sexuality.

And it's not your fault.


Because many of us received minimal to no education on how to go from the couch to the bedroom—how to help our clients talk, process and heal sexually related problems in a sex positive way.

I know I didn't.

And, most of our learning is based on reproductive anatomy.

Not on sexual or pleasure physiology, not beyond performance and function, and much less on holistic, integrated sexuality.

Like many, your graduate program did not allow the opportunity to explore you are sexual being, your sexual values, your innate sexual expression, and much less, and so important, your sexual biases.

As a sex therapist, many clients share with me that their past therapists never asked about sex, that they were shamed for bringing up fetishes or other sexual issues into session or felt that it was not okay to talk about sex in therapy.

This is not okay.

And, I am committed to helping those in helping professions learn to hold the space they truly desire so that their clients can feel safe exploring and sharing their sexual story and their sexual self.

If you are a therapist or clinician interested in learning how to go from the couch to the bedroom and helping your clients more powerfully with sex and sexuality issues, this workshop is for you.

In this workshop you will

  • Learn how to ask your clients about their sex life in simple and easy ways.
  • Learn about your own sexual values and beliefs and how they relate to your work.
  • Learn about holistic sexuality.
  • Learn what is sex therapy and about sex therapy as a niche.

Workshop is open to

  • LMFT, LCSW, LPC, PsyD, PhD
  • PsyD, PHD, MFT & LCSW Associates/Interns or graduates awaiting intern numbers

Please inquire if your license/credential is not on this list.
