WOMEN, SEX + POWER -  MY STORY

Over the years, I've had many conversations with female colleagues about the professional challenges of working with issues of attraction, desire, and power in psychotherapy.  I was struck by how similar our feelings of shame, guilt, anxiety, and embarrassment were in acknowledging these thoughts and experiences, and how inhibited we felt talking about these experiences with other therapists and our supervisors.  When I looked for training opportunities in this area, there were none.  I was eager to explore these issues in my own work, and given these conversations with colleagues, I knew others were as well.  I wanted to create a safe training space for therapists to explore and work with themes of desire, sex, power, and control. Women, Sex + Power was born.

I believe when we as therapists increase our own understanding and comfort working with these feelings, we are more effective in helping clients do the same. Understanding how to explore these themes can prevent treatment drop outs and keep the work alive and fresh for ourselves and our clients.

Laura + Yoon were excellent role models for powerful and kind women leaders.
— AGPA 2016 Workshop Participant

I've led introductory Women, Sex + Power workshops in San Francisco. I've also co-led Women, Sex + Power workshops at the 2016 American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA) annual conference in New York, and the Colorado Group Psychotherapy Society Conference in November 2016 with a colleague, Yoon Kane, LCSW.  The overwhelming attendance at these events demonstrates how hungry both women and men are to explore this topic. 

I co-authored an article on Women, Sex + Power as well with Yoon Kane in the AGPA newsletter Group Circle. Click here to read the article.

I'm committed to women and men feeling free and empowered about their sexuality.  I donate a percentage of my time and the profits from Women, Sex + Power work to causes that support the prevention of the commercial sexual exploitation of children in the U.S.
