About me

I have always loved helping people, and as a seasoned clinical psychotherapist specializing in relationships and sexuality, I spend much of my time doing just that! In addition to working in psychiatric hospitals and having a private practice, I am the CEO and founder of Holistic Wisdom, Inc., which provides intimacy and sexual wellness education, resources, and products.
I also founded The National Association for the Advancement of Science & Art in Sexuality: NAASAS, where my Safe Sexual Products Campaign and sex toy education resources are internationally acclaimed.
I am frequently interviewed as a leading authority on relationship and intimacy trends as I strive to help heal hearts and minds, aiming to bring a bit more light into our world.
