What do I know about sex?
I realized early on that the average person had neither an understanding of sex, nor knew how to talk about it. I decided to make it my life’s mission to work with others in helping them address their sexuality issues. I want to help you understand why you have the issues you do and help you create options to either change what isn't working for you or have a better understanding of the issue so you feel better about who you are.
One of the best ways I have found to do this is through the media. I go where the average Joe/Jane who has sex questions go. If you feel good about getting information from Twitter or YouTube or ITunes, then that, my friend is where I am going to be. There's a lot of clutter out there and a lot of information that is less than stellar. I figured a good source for real, honest sex information is from someone who is trained and being a wife and mother to boot is helpful too. I do actually feel I have a valuable perspective to offer.
Plus, hello, sex is fun! We all take ourselves too seriously at certain points (as obviously evidenced by this bio page). Let's get you the info you need and the permission you deserve to love yourself (figuratively and literally) and explore sex in a consensual, healthy way. And did I mention, you should have some fun while you are at it?
That being said, here is all the credential stuff confirming why you might want to listen to me...
I am a Clinical Sexologist Marriage and Family Therapist who has been practicing in the field of counseling since 1994. In addition to my training in Marriage, Family and Addictions, I have extensive sexuality training. Bear in mind that most medical doctors, general therapists and psychologists only received an average of zero to nine hours of training in regard to sexual issues, rest assured that Clinical Sexologists have undergone years of training, and hundreds of hours of education, in the field of sexuality. Yes, you can actually go to school and study sex.
My specific qualifications consist of a Bachelor’s Degree in ‘Family Resources and Human Development’, A Master’s Degree in ‘Counseling Psychology’, a Post-Graduate Degree in ‘Marriage, Family and Addictions’, and a Doctorate in ‘Human Sexuality’. I also have a certification as a yoga teacher/therapist. I am flexible -- no jokes from the peanut gallery, please.
I believe the importance of a strong inner sense of self and the cultivation of harmonious relationships is attainable for everyone. I facilitate a solution oriented, practical approach in my counseling and advice. I pride myself on being completely non-judgmental and open to the process as it unfolds.
I am an Associate Professor at The Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality and an adjunct professor
at Akamai University. I serve as the Resident Sex Expert at www.AdamandEve.com
