Jeff Guenther, MS, LPC on Jun 02, 2019 in Say More About That

Jeff talks to Julie Jeske, LPC, a sex therapist, about how therapists can be better at talking about sex and   check their sexual bias. We also dive into what clients should know about sex therapy. We discuss the very important differences between a sex therapist, a sex coach, sex surrogates, sex workers and sexy witches.

This episode covers:

  • How Julie first became comfortable talking about sex when she sold sex toys
  • The advice she got from her own therapist when applying to grad school
  • How she talks to her clients about sex and what she does to make her clients feel comfortable
  • What sorts of issues she addresses as a sex therapist
  • How to figure out if you have a sex bias as a therapist
  • The difference between all the different types of sex healers and practitioners.
