After growing up in the church, I realized that there was a real need for honest and open communication about sex. I believe that sex and sexuality is something that should be celebrated and enjoyed, but in order to do this it must be understood. Being able to dialogue openly about this inherent part of us is crucial and a critical part of a relationship.
In 2005, I graduated with a B.A. in political studies from Whitworth University and embarked out on my journey to help others. My passion for sexuality led me to Widener University where I graduated with a M.Ed. in Human Sexuality in 2007. My experiences at Widener allowed me to become an AASECT Certified Sexuality Educator in 2008. In 2008, I enrolled in Capella University's M.S. Counseling program so I could become a Licensed Professional Counselor. I will graduate in the Spring of 2011. Throughout the past several years, I have worked as a community sexuality educator/trainer, co-facilitated a support group for pregnant and parenting teenage mothers, and provided pre-marital sexuality counseling at my church. I have also served as a sexual health consultant to medical students at Indiana University School of Medicine.
I am an educated, passionate, and enthusiastic professional who wants to see individuals thrive. I believe that if two people are committed to making a relationship work, sometimes the only thing they need is the tools to do that. I can make that happen!
