Certified Sex Surrogate Partner
Long Beach, California | Phone: 562-428-7664
We all have our own special light and we all have hurts that keep us from realizing that light and genuine happiness. Ultimately all our answers come from within, but sometimes we need to reach out for help. I have been in the helping / therapeutic professions all my adult life. Your journey to wholeness begins with one step. Each step is a reflection of your courage and commitment to yourself.
I was trained as a sex surrogate in 1988 by the International Professional Surrogates Assn. I have trained several classes of sex surrogates, and have been president of IPSA.
I work with women who are without partners, or women whose partners don't happen to share their need to create a better life. There are many reasons why a woman would seek help from a surrogate partner.
Some of these include:
- Sex addicts and those in recovery
- Insecurity arising from shyness or physical concerns
- Past negative experiences including trauma and abuse
- Women resettled from another culture who wish to assimilate
- Those who have had sexual reassignment and would like assurance
- Those who are more or less healthy but would benefit from sex education
- Those who have been "out of the world" in lengthy retreat or spiritual practice
- Physical but non-medical etiologies (psychogenic vaginismus and dyspareunia)
I have worked with disabled, survivor, grieving, transgendered, senior and virginal clients.
Our treatment plan begins with a sex history. This is followed by simple touch and non-sexual caress of hands and face. Each exercise or experience builds on what came before. From these intimacies we build a relationship, and it is in this trust that issues are organically addressed. If you live in the Los Angeles area, we would meet weekly, typically from twelve to twenty weeks.
If you live outside Los Angeles, there are weekend plans to fit your schedule. You should be in a therapist's care during this work. Local therapists are available for those who come to Los Angeles. We work together in a concentrated format of the surrogate process.
