I am currently working on my sex therapy certification with the Sexual Health Alliance in order to eventually become a Certified Sex Therapist with AASECT.

Morgan is currently an AASECT member, and received training to apply for certification as a Sex Therapist.

Sex therapy informs the work that I do by bringing the focus back to communication and the body. How we interact with other people and how our bodies feel can tell us so much about ourselves and those around us. In the therapy room we can increase our knowledge, improve our communication and connect with our bodies in ways that are helpful in and out of the bedroom.

— Brianna Hollestelle, Marriage and Family Therapist Associate in Parker, CO

I have taken extensive couples and individual trainings around best approaches and practices in integrating all aspects of relational work, including healthy sexuality which I tackle with comfort, appropriate humor, and levity to assess, plan, and treat a variety of concerns.

Sex therapy can be an individual or couples endeavor and focuses on difficulties centered on sexuality and relationships. Views on sexual behavior can be as varied as our family, educational, and social experiences, and as a result, we can feel shamed, embarrassed, and confused regarding our sexual desires and interests. I strive to normalize a wide range of sexuality while assisting individuals in managing performance, communication, and anxiety due to misinformation.

I empower couples to embrace their desires, overcome challenges, and cultivate fulfilling sexual experiences that deepen their intimacy and self knowledge in a supportive environment where they can explore their sexuality confidently, authentically and joyously. My practice is kink, poly and LGBTQ+ affirming.

— Hayden Dover, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in San Diego, CA
 

Our sexuality often lies at the center of our psyche, and for some people even their spirituality. Our sexuality influences our self-perception and perception of the world. Societal expectations and traumatic experiences can hinder our ability to cultivate healthy connections with ourselves and our sources of meaning. Sexual healing fosters more authenticity and deeper connections with those around us, as well as helping us be more embodied and creative.

I am trained in sex therapy and earned my certification as a sex therapist last year. Sex, sexuality, gender, etc. are all biological factors of being human and it transcends all cultures and races. Yet, it is the thing humans have the hardest time talking about. I provide a safe and non judgmental space to talk about sex and sex related issues in the hopes to normalize it and help move through the learned shame that often comes with sex issues.
