What is Soma-Cultural?

Anchor 1

Hensci (greetings) and welcome! - thank you for taking the time to check out my work. People visit my website for all kinds of reasons; referral, curiosity, need of professional services, and an interest in my work as a soma-cultural sex therapist and educator.  


What is soma-cultural? This is a phrase I use to highlight my interest in the body and its relation to culture which helps shape, challenge, and ultimately influence our experiences. I hold values in justice, equity, diversity, and inclusivity.  These values guide my work and inform how I understand the complex issues people experience in their lives.  I apply these values to my work in psychotherapy, sex therapy, supervision, workshops and trainings, and sexuality studies.

My training as a psychotherapist and sex therapist included little information about how our varying cultures impact the way we feel, think, and behave around our sexuality.  Yet, in my numerous years in the field I have not met one client for whom culture didn't play a role in the challenges they were facing in regards to their sexual health and vitality. Thankfully, my undergraduate studies as an anthropology major helped me recognize the importance of knowing the role culture plays in our personal experiences.

It is my core professional belief across all of my disciplines that in order to fully understand our lived experience, we must include an examination of how culture impacts our bodies.


I am a CA licensed marriage and family therapist (#96853), AASECT Certified Sex Therapist, college professor, clinical supervisor, and workshop/training developer and coordinator.  My work focuses on the intersection of pleasure and intimacy.  I consider my work soma-cultural. I am interested in the body and its relation to culture which helps shape, challenge, and ultimately influence our experiences. Click here for more.


I have been in the mental health field for over a decade, starting as a volunteer at a hospice in New York City where I also worked with HIV and chronic pain patients.  This led me to a deeper inquiry of how emotional pain impacts the body.  


After completing my Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology I worked in the Bay Area of California in private practice internships as well as providing therapy at a local high school in San Francisco. Currently I have a private practice where I see a variety of clients who are experiencing life challenges, most related to sexual health and wellness.

In addition to my work in mental health, I am also an educator and provide training for universities and clinics, training institutions around a variety of topics including Native American sexuality, Native American feminism, social justice work in therapy, couples counseling, multicultural counseling, and human sexuality, and sex therapy.
