About Therapy with Joy

Everything is energy. Being in touch with our sexual energy put us in touch with our

most authentic selves in a happy, healthy, mindful way.

Therapy with That Joy Place intentionally works against traditional therapeutic models. I take a holistic approach, integrated evidenced-based mental health interventions with a tantric spiritual exploration of the energies that need to be adjusted in sex, intimacy, environment, thoughts, identity and practiced beliefs.

My therapy modality, F.A.R. Therapy, is how I will work with you to achieve the results you desire.

What is Therapy Like?

I believe my role as your therapist is to be intentionally different than anyone else in your life. I will challenge you to tap into your own strengths, build resiliency, and reclaim vulnerability, all while also offering a caring and nurturing space that honors your pace and needs. I often infuse humor and creativity into sessions as a way to continuously make our time together enjoyable and engaging.

How Does Energy Work integrate with Therapy?

The chakra system of Tantra and Kundalini Yoga provides insight into the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual dimensions of the human experience. In one’s quest to deeply get to know themselves and to rediscover their true nature, the chakras can be a powerful asset. Theoretical and experiential knowledge of the chakras offers the opportunity to heal emotional distress, examine and transform negative beliefs, and shift unsatisfying life patterns. The chakra system is very useful in the psychotherapy process, in that it can help in the identification of blockages to growth and opportunities for healing.

Energetic Messages

How does your physical world - your home, bedroom, attire, workspace - impact the energy you give off and receive?

Meaning of Sex

How do your family's values, your closest friendships and even your daily social media consumption impact the way you view sexuality? Positively, negatively, or even neutral subliminal messages about what is "good," "bad," or "normal."

Experience of Empowerment

How do you see what your choices are? Do you believe that you have a choice in shaping what intimacy is for you (e.g. sexual orientation, relationship orientation, surrender)? Are you in control of your body, loving of your temple?

In unblocking these messages, we can begin to intentionally create a script for intimacy that helps your energy flow in a mindful, satisfying way.

As a sexologist, erotic embodiment practitioner and sensual yoga instructor, I theraputically support pleasure being a healthy and regular part of our lives. With this in mind, I've created a safe-haven for melanated goddesses.

Our curated online space is designed for melanated goddesses looking to reconnect with their bodies, explore pleasure, and move into their season of softness.
