Therapists have difficult conversations with clients daily. There are some conversations, though, that can create feelings of discomfort, nervousness and doubt. Most often, these feelings are tied to discussions of sex with clients. Whether it's about sex in general or specific sexual behaviors, therapists deserve to feel confident and secure in how they respond to these situations.
Hi, I'm Gillian! I am a Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider, meaning I have experience working with individuals who engage in a wide variety of sexual behaviors. I have had countless conversations about topics relating to sex with adults and teens in individual and group settings.
Along with working with clients, I love to provide support to other therapists on these topics. I have helped guide, encourage and inform therapists within the relationships they have already established with clients. I am confident that, together, we will collaborate to determine what is best for you and your clients.

While I love to have conversations about these topics with clients, I know discussions about sexual topics can be difficult.
