AASECT SEX THERAPY
BIPOC GROUP SUPERVISION
Clinicians Pursuing AASECT Sex Therapy Certification will receive hours towards supervision.
AASECT Certified Sex Therapists receive CE hours.
This group intends for participants to experience a greater sense of belonging, to be more fully seen, and heard while celebrating their unique tapestry and cultural being.
To create a space where ancestors and their sacrifices are honored.
Learning how best to serve our clients from a lived multicultural approach.
The group’s mission is to create a safe, supportive, and sacred space for BIPOC therapists on their journey toward AASECT Certification.
Jacqueline uses an integrative approach. She believes that sex is sacred and that sexuality is unique to every individual. With a Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology, her work is infused with spirituality and holistic perspectives, including ancestral rituals including Gina Ogden’s 4-D approach. She works from a decolonizing, feminist, anti-racist, and intersectional perspective.
Jacqueline has presented at the annual AASECT Conference on the use of movement and embodiment practices in sex therapy to support clients (and supervisees) to more fully heal and integrate body, heart, mind, and spirit.
She also believes that the process of becoming a sex therapist is a personal journey that will not only teach you how to best support your clients’ growth, but also heal and expand you in various facets.
My Supervision Values
The Person of the Therapist Training Model presents a model that prepares therapists to make active and purposeful use of who they are, personally and professionally, in all aspects of the therapeutic process—relationship, assessment, and intervention. Conscious and planned use of a therapist’s race, gender, culture, values, life experience, and in particular, personal vulnerabilities and struggles in how they relate to and help clients.
Clinical supervision can then emphasize the purposeful utilization of self-in the moment—both flaws and strengths—in the therapeutic relationship in combination with the technical interventions with clients.
Intersectionality is a concept for understanding the ways that multiple forms of inequality or disadvantage compound themselves and create obstacles that often are not understood among conventional ways of thinking. Inclusion is critical to the field of sexuality so that sexual minorities, marginalized folx, non-English speakers, and those of various cultures can receive good and knowledgeable sex therapy and support.
Equality is about the fair treatment of everyone seeking mental and sexual health.
Equity creates equal possible outcomes for everyone because, despite effort and merit, people can experience substantial barriers in obtaining mental and sexual health.
Diversity is all the ways in which people differ from one another. This can include race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, socioeconomic status, veteran status, education, marital status, language, age, gender, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, mental or physical ability, and learning styles
Inclusion is the culture in which the mix of people can feel comfortable and confident to be themselves and seek support in a way that aligns with who they are. Having sex therapists that also reflect the population they are serving is also essential.
Some of the most fundamental understanding of the human condition emerges from the Western understanding of what is considered healthy, normal, and acceptable. The decolonizing perspective calls for action toward social change, inclusion, and validation of the lived experiences of indigenous populations, people of color, and the economically disadvantaged, among others.
I teach my supervisees to address the whole person not just the presenting problem. This includes a person’s physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual well-being. Addressing the whole person in body-mind-heart-spirit can bring out the healthiest, happiest version of ourselves and heal. It also supports clients not to focus only performance and function, and see the whole of their sex and sexuality narrative.
I have presented at various AASECT Conferences about the importance of embodiment techniques, to get clients back in their bodies rather than keeping them sitting while exploring thoughts and feelings. Embodiment or body-focused processes assist our clients in creating a different experience in the moment. Supervisees are guided through different processes to help them connect to their own bodies.I have presented at various AASECT Conferences about the importance of embodiment techniques, to get clients back in their bodies rather than keeping them sitting while exploring thoughts and feelings.

My continued growth and commitment in anti-racist and de-colonial therapeutic practices influences my work and mentoring with supervisees.
I motivate my supervisees to participate within our professional communities and to be a support network for each other.
I encourage my supervisees to learn and grow from countertransferece as it appears naturally in a therapeutic space.
I help supervisees create a sacred space for their own journey as a sex therapist because as sex therapists we are help by bringing light to the dark places and compassion to the tender parts.
As part of the AASECT Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee, I support the organization’s growth in this area. Being part of this committee also supports my commitment to greater inclusion, equity, and representation. Learn more about me or other supervisory offerings.
Seeing the lack of Latinx and other BIPOC representation within AASECT propelled me to become an AASECT Sex Therapy Supervisor. Today, I supervise mental health clinicians across the USA seeking AASECT Certification, consult nationally on sexual health issues on various media outlets, and own a group practice specializing in relationships and sex therapy that supports BIPOC folx learn about sex therapy as well as a sex coaching practice that is launching soon.
