Sexuality

IMG_2223ps

[This page is dedicated to Professor Milton Diamond, world-renowned clinical sexologist and a personal supporter of my ongoing research in human sexuality and psychosexual development.]

Through the 20+ years that I have maintained my counseling practice, my research and professional counseling interests have included human sexuality and all of its various dimensions. Many people have written to me seeking advice and support for their questions about sexuality and identity.

I am a member of the American Psychological Association Division 44: Society for the Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender and the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT).

In my experience, I have learned that every person has a unique ‘sexual signature’: The way you experience and express your sexuality and your gender identity is seldom exactly the same as anyone else.

You have the right to explore your own personal sexual signature free from guilt and shame.

On this page, I introduce you to resources I have found to be highly instructive and empowering. Take your time with these resources, keep a log or journal of your discoveries and insights. Be loving and kind to yourself, trust your instincts, allow yourself the opportunity to explore issues that may need compassionate support and self-acceptance.
