Everyone deserves to have a healthy relationship with their body and
sexuality, no matter their sex, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity,
age, socio-economic status, education level, religious affiliation, STD
status, or physical or mental capacity. Everyone, including you,
deserves to have a positive body and genital self-image and an
overall sense of sexual agency and self-esteem.

These are your sexual rights. Unfortunately, many of us have been wounded in our right to have a healthy relationship with our body and sexuality, and struggle with feelings of shame, distrust,
Therapy can be a safe space to begin the process of reclaiming your sexual rights, transforming sexual shame and negative body image, developing greater self-acceptance and appreciation of your body and sexuality, enhancing your sense of embodiment and capacity to experience pleasure, and learning to feel empowered in your sexuality and confident about the choices you make.
