If saying the word SEX out loud makes you cringe inside, you're in the right place. Right now, the idea of having a deeply satisfying relationship with yourself and others might feel distant. The longing to fully inhabit your body, connect authentically with your partner, and ignite the flames of passion is a natural human yearning. You deserve to reclaim your right to a thriving sexual life. While it may feel difficult to address, together we can navigate this topic so that you can feel fully present and alive in your body and your life.
As a trauma-informed Sex Therapist who has worked with family relationships for 16 years, I am a warm, non-judgmental, and calm guide as you bravely uncover the questions you've hesitated to say out loud. If you are a parent who wishes they could talk with their kids about their sexuality without shame, you are safe and welcome here.
At PNW ICC, we'll embark on a journey of healing and growth through an inclusive lens. I specialize in religious trauma, sex therapy, and relationship healing. Reaching out for help can be intimidating, but I invite you to contact my practice today. Our first complimentary conversation will help us determine the best fit for you and your family.
