“How can you have a good sexual relationship when no one ever tells you how to do that? There’s plenty of talk about what not to do, but that doesn’t automatically provide a road map for creating a happy and successful sexual life.” -Al Vernacchio, For Goodness Sex
I am passionate about facilitating conversations and providing opportunities for education and evolution regarding sex and sexuality. I offer public workshops, one-on-one coaching, and private small group sessions.

No, You Can’t “Unsee” It: Talking with your kids about Pornography
Pornography is a pervasive part of our society, but most conversations about it are fraught with emotions or unproductive. In this workshop, we will consider the issues surrounding kids’ access to pornography and different perspectives regarding the impact of pornography viewing on kids. At the end of the workshop, parents will be able to clarify both facts and their own values to shape their message to their kids. One 2-hour session.

Having open communication promotes healthier behaviors, especially in regards to sex and sexuality. This workshop will give parents an opportunity to learn active listening skills, discuss what makes talking about consent challenging, consider how to discuss #metoo, formulate their own definition of consent, and learn how to communicate and practice consent with their kids. One 2-hour session.
