Navigating Your Sexual Identity: Bay Area Dating, Communicating Sexual Preferences, Managing Romantic Pitfalls, and Turning “Happily Ever After” into a Reality
“This workshop was born in response to countless requests I received from women I’ve worked with professionally, as a way to continue the conversation about sex/relationship health, and allow a larger community of women to participate. I will be sharing some of the most valuable pieces of what I’ve learned from helping women. I am grateful and privileged to have had the opportunity to work with so many! I want to pass along how they gained new insights about their patterns, overcome blind spots, change course and try new behaviors. Along with that progress came new ways of seeing themselves as worthy of love and affection, as well as an increased ability to enjoy sex in new ways. These gains opened up doors for them in all areas of their life, as they came to see themselves with more clarity.”
