Meet Jacqueline

Jacqueline Mendez, LMFT, CST, CSTS

Jacqueline is dedicated to using all life experiences as a soul curriculum.

She is dedicated to evolving the relationships we have surrounding sexuality, spirituality, intimacy, and life mastery.

One core belief is that everything that arrives in life – all of it – good and bad, delicious, and stinky, is in service to our growth.  The other is that everyone is born with the God-given right to experience pleasure and to feel good in one’s own skin.

She guides her clients through body movement, heart-centered techniques, psychology, and spirituality to align body-heart-mind-spirit.

Jacqueline teaches her clients to tap into and integrate sensuality and sexuality as pathways into their deepest wisdom, harnessing their own transformational power, embody aliveness, experience more freedom, and feel more powerfully effective in every aspect of their lives.

Her sweet spot is the intersection of sexuality, sensuality, and spirituality. She delights in supporting her clients breaking free from old stories, opening up to their innate gifts, and stepping more fully into their full potential.  And, feeling more comfortable in their own skin.

Each client is provided a unique experience.  She integrates her love of movement and dance with the  Four-Dimensional Wheel approach with Body-Focused, Spiritual Psychology, and Tantra, Mind-Body connection, Sexual Yoga techniques, the Interplay of Masculine & Feminine Energy (Polarity), Sex Therapy, Nonlinear Movement Method,  and Shamanic practices.

She provides her offerings to a variety of individuals, groups, and couples.  Also, Jacqueline facilitates workshops and VIP days.

Her passion is bringing more freedom, acceptance, and empowerment through education and inquiry.  Her focus is on inspiring others to create extraordinary lives, deeper intimacy, and experience greater sexual freedom and expression. 

One of her greatest joys is being of service to the Latinx and Spanish-speaking community.  Her goal is to help breakdown taboos, misinformation, and transforming rigid male-female sexuality stereotypes.  She has done this through segments on Telemundo, Univision, and radio.

Everything that happens to you is in service to you remembering and embodying your beautifully divine and loving nature.

Why is certification so important when it comes to finding a sex therapist?

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 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 in the intersection of mental health and sexuality.  Our therapists receive supervision, training, and mentoring in holistic mental health, relationship dynamics, and sexuality.
