Where I am in my healing, which began 20 years, is a long way from where I started.
That start marked the beginning of my healing practice as both a practitioner and facilitator of healing. I remember using healing practices such as yoga, meditation, and energy work in my personal healing. When I began to teach these healing practices to my social work and therapy clients, my approach was pretty much seen as an "odd", but impactful. I am glad I chose to be odd.
Today, in my professional life, I am private practice clinical somatic sex therapist, sex educator, transformational life & erotic coach, plant medicine advocate, and clinical entrepreneur & professional development coach. In my personal life, I am Black baby Elder who is a queer, gender fluid, polyamorous, kink-aware, plant medicine hippie, sexual-spiritual, spiritual-sexual, and erotic human being.
As a survivor of sexual trauma, intimate partner violence, & mother wounds, I am thriving. As a result of my healing, I realize I AM WHOLE. Today, I embody wholeness. I am a WHOLE-Self healer.
Who am I personally informs & impacts how I show up professionally-radically honest and authentic. I believe we all experience our own unique set of events that affect our emotional, mental, spiritual, and sexual well-being- our WHOLE Self. I also believe (and the research shows) we have an unique ability to heal our WHOLE-Self.
In this beliefs and as Founder, The Institute will assist you in your personal healing to explore and unlearn the negativity you learned about yourself, your clients, and your colleagues. This negativity is a result of your lived experience or interactions with family, friends/peer groups, community, work, culture, & mainstream standards of sex-negativity, eroticism, sexual pleasure, social, sexual, and gender expectations, desirability....and everything in between.

More importantly, the offerings will be provide a healing-justice framework that establishes safety to create space for change transform in both your personal and professional healing.
