Do some things feel too scary to talk about?
I get that. Exploring these topics in a safe environment expands our horizons and helps us to better understand ourselves and the world around us. Learning allows us to grow and develop as human beings.
The things we most need to talk about the most are often the things that often make us uncomfortable, challenge our worldview, or are deemed “socially unacceptable”. Oftentimes the things that make us uncomfortable do so because of our past experiences, our upbringing, social norms, or what others expect from us.
Sometimes the people around us aren’t always the people we feel safe having these difficult conversations with. Even if they are, there are somethings we would feel more comfortable exploring with someone outside of our inner circles. Exploring these topics in a safe environment with a non-judgmental professional can help us grow. Personal growth can help us heal.
I specialize in human sexuality
Humans are sexual beings, and our sexuality plays a key part in our overall health and wellbeing. For many, our sexuality, bodies, reproductive decisions, gender identity, sexual orientation, and relationships have been stigmatized to the point where people experience negative physical and mental health outcomes as a result. Homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism, ableism, fatphobia, xenophobia all plague our society and influence cultural ideas about human sexuality.
It does not have to be this way.
Sexual health is a vital part of our lives, and our experiences with out sexuality and our bodies directly impact our physical and mental health and wellbeing. Sexual health is mental health and physical health. In order to address the needs of individuals seeking reproductive health information and care, we must look at it holistically.
So…. Let’s talk.
I work with folks on a variety of different issues directly impacting their lives: pregnancy decision-making, abortion, sexuality, gender identity, relationships, religion and spirituality, etc. I talk with my clients about politics… not what party to support, nor who to donate to or what candidate to vote for, but how political issues impact all of our lives. We live in a world with a long legacy of systemic oppression in many forms, and that impacts us all differently depending on our identities and lived experiences. The personal is political, after all.
