We live in a culture that mistrusts sexuality and downgrades the importance of embodied pleasure. As a result, many of us experience a fractured foundation of the sexual-self, causing us to consciously and unconsciously measure our bodies and our sexuality against unrealistic standards. We step further and further away from accessing and appreciating the great potential within us.
At Embodied Relationships Counseling Center, we help you develop the personal resilience that enlists the wisdom of the whole self—the mind, the body, and the embedded social-self—to enact fundamental growth in your individual life as well as to catalyze larger social change. This strengthens your emotional immune system against the dis-ease of a sex-negative society. By observing and experiencing the deep nuance found in your body at this very moment, you can release the social biases, stereotypes, and conditioning that caused you to minimize your erotic body. And through effective embodied communication of your desires, needs, and boundaries, your relationships will be fulfilling and strong. When we turn to the body, the place where all experiences leave their mark, we can discover the holistic and truly relational sexual-self that we long for.
We work with individuals of all orientations in 60-minute or 90-minute session format for those who experience:
○Difficulty or discomfort with intimacy with yourself and others
○ Relationship difficulties
○ A desire to feel more empowered, effective, and authentic
These issues may contribute to the following:
