Hello Courtney, why did you choose to be a sex therapist?
I have always been interested in society's taboos... I wasn't "supposed" to know about sex so of course, I wanted to know more. This interest was also supported by my mom so I was able to learn and know a lot from a young age. When I decided Med School wasn't for me sex therapy was the next logical choice lol!
I own and operate a group practice with several highly trained sex therapists. Please reach out if you are in California and would like support. We do not take insurance but can offer you a superbill for insurance reimbursement. We look forward to working with you!
What are the most memorable moments of your work experience?
I really love when clients see that what they thought sex was is only a piece of it. When folx delve into the expansiveness of possibilities of what sex can look like, get energized and excited about it, it is always memorable.
Do you have any advice to us women?
Please know that you don't have to live with sex guilt or shame. Find your way to play and joy. Indulge in sexual excitement and pleasure. I know there are things that have happened to us or that we have been told that can hinder sexual joy, but please know that there are paths to freedom. You deserve sexual pleasure, you deserve sexual liberation, you deserve sex and joy- I know because my clitoris told me. Your clitoris will tell you too!!
