VIRTUAL CONSULTATION GROUP

Monthly Sex Therapy Consultation Group

AASECT-Certified Clinicians & Licensed Clinicians Seeking Support for Sex Therapy Cases from a Sex-Positive, Decolonizing and Intersectional Lens.

 Completing  AASECT Certification is no small feat, especially since most therapists, on average, have a 6-week class on sex therapy that is not taught from a sex-positive perspective.  Core knowledge areas, sex therapy training, the SAR, and 50 hours of supervision, plus the inner journey of becoming a sex therapist, completely change how a therapist helps their client and how they show up in the world. 

Completing your AASECT certification is not the end of the journey. 

Having a safe place to talk about client challenges, transference, countertransference, etc., while receiving support from like-minded colleagues is vital for your growth as a clinician and your spirit.  

This is a monthly consultation group for AASECT Certified Sex Therapists & Licensed Therapists that are actively working with sex therapy clients and are seeking further support on their professional journey from a culturally sensitive, feminist, intersectional, and decolonizing perspective.

Groups will use an integrative approach, including more traditional techniques of therapy and sex therapy.  Various spiritual and existential perspectives will also be used. Therapists will be provided a safe space to process countertransference, transference, and other challenging triggers that can normally occur with clients.  

This group will support you in learning innovative ways to care for your client and, above all, care for yourself.  Working in the sex therapy field is a personal and profound journey.  Client’s stories, unresolved/triggered trauma, a legislature that decreases sexual rights, the impact of isolation and COVID, the loneliness of being a sexual health practitioner, etc., impact how sex therapist holds their own journey while accompanying their clients on their journey. 

The importance of a  decolonizing and intersectional lens will be woven throughout each session, supporting our client’s growth and that of the therapist.  We acknowledge that everyone has unique experiences of discrimination and oppression, and we must consider everything and anything that can marginalize people – gender, race, class, sexual orientation, physical ability, etc.  We also acknowledge colonization’s impact on sexuality, gender, colorism,  indigenous rituals, immigration journey/status, and recognizing colonized land.  Both intersectionality and decolonization ask us to embrace responsibility instead of accepting fault through equity, addressing inequality through education, dialogue, communication, and action.  This perspective is critical in sex therapy because, until recent history, theories and techniques were created by and served almost exclusively middle to upper-classes and non-colored folks.

Sex positivity is essential for clients and therapists alike.  Everyone needs to have space to embody, explore, and learn about their sexuality and gender without judgment or shame.  This group will not focus on diagnosis or addiction models.  An essential focus will be recognizing that people may experience significant physical, psychological, spiritual, and sexual health consequences related to their sexual urges, thoughts, or behaviors, but we do not pathologize.  Instead, clinicians will focus on learning or refining ways to assist clients in valuing consent, communication, and education that allows people to make informed choices about their bodies and pleasure.
