Sex Positive Counseling
What does sex positive mean?
Being sex positive means understanding that sexual expression and experience is diverse. It means believing that all consensual sexual expression can be healthy and pleasurable. It means recognizing that there are more options to relationships than traditional monogamy. It means not judging others for their consensual sexual choices.
Many people who participate in "alternative" sexual expression or relationships are afraid to go to therapy. They fear that the sexual practices they participate in, the kinds of relationships they have, or the communities to which they belong will be judged negatively by the therapist. They fear that their behaviors or relationships will be automatically blamed for their problems, even if (especially if) it's not why they're seeking therapy. Unfortunately, some therapists consciously or unconsciously do just that.
I am a sex-positive therapist. What this means for you as my client is that no matter how you express yourself sexually, I will be open, non-judgmental, and knowledgeable. It also means that I am committed to continually learning about human sexuality and the spectrum of human relationships. Our knowledge of sexual expression is constantly growing and changing, and I promise to grow and change with it in order to better serve you.
