Sex Positive Therapy
Melinda is excited to be a member of the Sexual Health Alliance organization (SHA) and to have obtained her SHA certification. As a sex therapist, she wants to provide a positive and healthy, non-judgmental environment for processing conversations for her clients and assist people on this important journey. She works with individuals and those in relationships with others.
As a sex-positive therapist, Melinda understands that valuing yourself and others, in the relationship can energize the connection you have. Pausing to consider and share what your intimate needs and/or sexual preferences are help connections and trust in the relationship.
In CNM (Consensual Non-Monogamous) relationships, communication is key to the success and wellbeing of the relationship. Melinda provides counseling that can help build with those skills. Speaking in a manner that shows an understanding of equality and respect welcomes the listener to hear and be a partner in the creation of their healthy relationship.
Melinda provides services to couples and individuals with diverse sexuality concerns, including – but not limited to – loss of desire; discrepancies in desire between couples; erection or ejaculation difficulties; fetishism; issues of gender identity; issues pertaining to sexual identity and sexual orientation; challenges around orgasm; sexual pain for men and women; vaginismus (contractions of the vagina that prevent penetration); sexuality and chronic illness; sexuality and physical ability; polyamory; trauma and paraphilias. (Please note that MCP Counseling does not work with sex offenders but can make appropriate referrals.)
Melinda is excited to work with individuals and those in relationships that are looking to have a healthy environment or work through some specific issues. Melinda is in supervision with Dr. David Ley, AASECT Sex Therapist Supervisor and Jassy Cassella Timberlake, M.ED., LMFT, CST, AASECT Sex Therapist Supervisor.
