AASECT GROUP SUPERVISION:
Spirituality & Sacred Sexuality
Clinicians Pursuing AASECT Sex Therapy Certification will receive hours towards supervision.
AASECT Certified Sex Therapists receive CE hours.
The aim of this AASECT Group supervision program focused on spirituality and sacred sexuality is to cultivate a supportive and enriching learning environment where sex therapy professionals can deepen their understanding, develop specialized skills, and explore the intersection of spirituality and sexuality within therapeutic practice.
Through collaborative inquiry, reflective dialogue, and experiential learning, participants will enhance their ability to effectively address the spiritual dimensions of human sexuality, honor diverse beliefs and values, and promote holistic well-being for individuals and couples seeking support in matters of sacred intimacy.
Our mission is to provide a transformative platform for AASECT-certified professionals and aspiring sex therapists to engage in rigorous supervision, ongoing professional development, and peer collaboration centered on the integration of spirituality and sacred sexuality into clinical practice.
Grounded in principles of ethical care, cultural competence, and client-centered approaches, our group supervision program seeks to foster a community of compassionate and skilled practitioners who are equipped to navigate complex issues, empower clients in their sexual journeys, and uphold the highest standards of integrity and respect in the pursuit of healing and growth.
Through our shared commitment to excellence and innovation, we aspire to advance the field of sex therapy by embracing diverse perspectives, promoting inclusivity, and fostering a spirit of curiosity and discovery in service to the individuals and communities we serve.
Jacqueline, a dedicated practitioner, utilizes an integrative approach to sex therapy, recognizing sex as sacred and individualized. Holding a Master’s Degree in Spiritual Psychology, her practice is imbued with spiritual and holistic perspectives, emphasizing the uniqueness of each person’s sexuality. Her methodology integrates ancestral rituals, including Gina Ogden’s 4-D approach, alongside a commitment to decolonizing, feminist, anti-racist, and intersectional principles.
As an advocate for embodied healing, Jacqueline has presented at the annual AASECT Conference on the transformative use of movement and embodiment practices in sex therapy. She focuses on facilitating clients (and supervisees) to achieve deeper integration of body, heart, mind, and spirit.
Jacqueline views the journey of becoming a sex therapist as profoundly personal, one that not only equips practitioners to support client growth but also fosters personal healing and expansion across multiple dimensions.
Jacqueline’s exploration and study of sacred somatic/embodied practices constitute a pivotal aspect of her practice and personal journey. Embracing Tantra’s rich philosophical and experiential traditions, she delves into its teachings with a profound reverence for its holistic approach to human sexuality and spirituality. By integrating tantric principles into her work, she fosters a deeper understanding of intimacy, embodiment, and connection, recognizing the transformative power of tantra in facilitating profound healing and self-discovery for herself and her clients.

Jacqueline's 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.
