A holistic, integrative approach
to women's sexual health and pleasure.
More often than not, women begin their journey to better sexual health by seeing their gynecologist or primary care medical doctor who tells them “everything is normal,” that she needs to learn to relax and is sent home with a tube of numbing cream, dilators and depression or anxiety medication.
This leads many to giving up on the idea that they can ever have or even desire enjoyable sex.
The truth is that all women deserve to be heard, seen and provided with accurate sexual health information and interventions.
This is why Center for Relationship & Intimacy WellBeing is excited to invite women to join us for this intimate group program for women who are ready to change their relationship with sex, pain, low-desire, and other sexual intimacy issues.
The largest nationally representative survey in the US found that 30% of women ages 18 to 59 reported some difficulty with pain the last time they had sex. Studies on Female Sexual Interest/Arousal Disorder (SIAD) is present in 8.9%of women ages 18 to 44, 12.3% ages 45 to 64, and 7.4% over 65. Low or no desire is often medicalized, and prescriptions offer little effect.
Many suffer silently for years feeling alone, misunderstood, and hopeless. They often cope by not dating, avoiding long-term sexual relationships, or giving up in sexless marriages because the lack of sexual connections has led to less satisfaction and distress for both partners and the relationship.
Our sex and intimacy group program for women can help solve these issues and leave you with reinvigorated sexual energy by assisting women in unraveling their stories, partnering with their emotions, regulating the nervous system, and embodying their unique sensual selves, not for their partner, but for themselves.

Jacqueline Mendez, LMFT, CST, CST-S
In my work as a sex therapist, I have learned from my journey and that of my clients that many of us have not met our genuine sexual selves. Well-meaning parents, cultures, and religions teach us about sex and sexuality but are often layered with control and fear and focused on function—procreation and marital duty. Pleasure, vulnerability, and intimacy—with self and other—is often left out. I see sex as a place for spiritual growth where we can connect and integrate body, heart, mind, and spirit in service to experiencing more intimacy with self, lover, and life itself.
