“What would happen if we asked different questions of our clients—that encouraged them to address how sex feels and what it means in their lives, not just the goals and activities we can count and measure?” ​

– Gina Ogden


Individual & Group Supervision

I first became involved in this work because I wanted to help young adults, women, and men who had experienced intergenerational trauma and had been sexually, emotionally, and physically abused.

I worked for many years in community mental health. I loved the work I was doing with my clients, hated the focus on productivity, and felt frustrated that treatment focused on reducing symptoms rather than strength-based and helping clients rediscover their genuine selves. Sex positivity was out of the question.

After lots of soul searching, I decided to pursue sex therapy. I was fortunate to have been mentored by some of the most brilliant sex therapists and sexologists. 

Working in the field of sex therapy is one of the greatest blessings I have received. Being a sex therapist means that I help clients bring light to the darkest corners of their being. My clients (and often my supervisees) share things they can finally voice. Being a sex therapist is an act of love. And now, as a therapist, mentor and supervisor, I am beyond grateful to have what I view as the most extraordinary way of serving others on this beautiful planet.

I provide sex therapy supervision virtually to clinicians and healing art professionals nationally and internationally.

My supervision is eclecticintegrative, and interactive. My theoretical focus as a supervisor is the person of the therapist and the inclusion of various intersectional identities. I interweave spiritual practices and multicultural methods with more traditional therapy techniques and theories.   

Becoming a sex therapist can be a profound personal journey that may significantly change a clinician’s life.

Being a Sex Therapist is a Heart Calling

As a supervisor and mentor, I bring an integrative approach to sexual health and wellness. With decades of serving clients of various religions and cultures, I know how vital an integrative approach is to mental health and sexual functioning. Being a sex therapy supervisor, I intend to support clinicians to be sexually informed and empowered to assist their clients in healing powerfully and creating more connected and pleasure-filled relationships. I bring a solid multicultural and spiritual perspective to mental and sexual health. 

I mentor my supervisees to view sexual concerns beyond a physical or medical issue. No matter what the presenting problem a client seeks support with, exploring the emotional, mentalpsychological, and even spiritual areas of the client’s life is essential. 

Multiculturalism & Representation In Sex Therapy

As a member of the greater BIPOC community and a child of immigrants, it has always been vital to honor my roots and find ways to be my Latinidad and biculturalism in mental health and sex therapy.

Being one of the few Latinx and Spanishspeaking AASECT Certified Sex Therapy Supervisors, it is a heart-felt intention to mentor more sex therapists of color. 


Being one of the few biculturalbilingual AASECT Sex Therapy Supervisors, I am a fierce advocate for more Spanish-speaking/Latinx/Latine and POC clinicians to begin their journey as sex therapists.

Why is certification so important when it comes to sex therapy?


No aspect of the human experience is more intimate and vulnerable than that of sex and sexuality. AASECT Certified Sex Therapists are licensed mental health professionals trained to assess, diagnose, and provide in-depth psychotherapy far beyond the requirements in most psychology programs.

Sex therapists work with sexual concerns, including, but not limited to: sexual function and dysfunction; sexual pleasure; sexual variation; sexuality and disability; sexuality and chronic illness; sexual development across the lifespan; sexual abuse, assault, and coercion; and sexuality across cultures, identity, expression, lifestyle, and gender.

In addition, they are knowledgeable in providing comprehensive and intensive psychotherapy over an extended period in more complex cases. In addition, they go through their own bias and sensitivity training. They are supervised for an additional minimum of 18 months to ensure the ethical and clinically indicated application of what they learn.  

Because the title Certified Sex Therapist is not a protected or monitored title in every state, some people may use the title without having done such intensive training. Given the sensitive nature of sexual health, it is best to entrust your sexual concerns to a certified professional.

All our clinicians are members of professional organizations at the intersection of mental health and sexuality. Our therapists receive supervision, training, and mentoring in holistic mental health, relationship dynamics, and sexuality.
