Sex is something that most of us participate in, gain enjoyment from, and even utilize to create families. It’s something that people have shamed, derided, and made out to be a disgusting act (usually stemming from traumatic experiences, misinformation or implicit negative messaging). So I am choosing to talk about sex openly in my next few blogs--which makes me pretty radical. Did you know that Louisiana does not require instruction in sexual health education at any grade level but does allow sexual health education to be taught in grades 7th –12th?

Recently, a client admitted they had been searching for an older, gay male clinician. They desired to connect with an elder from within their own community. Who can blame them? But, as they discovered, there really aren’t any in Lafayette, Louisiana.
Grief is such an elusive topic. Throughout the years serving children, adolescents and adults I’ve witnessed grief in the most unsuspecting places.
When I am in my office, I am guided by what I needed when I was younger. I needed a therapist that was empathic, funny, nonjudgmental and above all else someone who simply listens. It’s important that every client I work with feels heard and validated.
