Melissa Fritchel , presenting Empowered Sexuality as a Part of Healing.
Sexuality is a powerful and integral part of our lives. Yet many healing professionals feel uncomfortable and ill-equipped to bring up sexual concerns with their clients or to support clients in creating empowered sexual lives. In this workshop, holistic sex therapist Melissa Fritchle, LMFT will provide ways to bring sexual health into your assessments, to honor the role sexuality plays in healing, and ways to make this topic more comfortable to talk about for you and your clients.
