Sexuality is one of the most exciting, mysterious, and confusing parts of a person's identity. The way we express ourselves sexually can be tinged with shame, fear, or anxiety based on our past experiences. We help individuals and couples understand their own beliefs concerning sex in a way that will then enable them to feel more free, secure, and connected in their sexual relationships.
