Kaia's background and credentials
-> SEX AND RELATIONSHIP THERAPIST
"And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."
I started out studying psychology in Boulder, CO, deeply curious about why people do what they do, and why as humans we have such difficulties in our relationships. I recognize we all want to be loved and feel that sense of belonging, yet somehow relationships can become quite complicated, messy and beautiful all at the same time.
Throughout my years of continued education, work and life experiences, I have learned that relationships are complex, because in part, we are complex as human beings, and we bring our past experiences and traumas into our present-day relationships. As a therapist, I enjoy helping people work through the confusion and pain of life, and make space for connection, intimacy, joy and play, within themselves and in their relationships.
I am an AASECT certified sex therapist with over 15 years professional experience, helping clients explore issues centered on sexuality, relationships and personal growth. My practice specializes in working with LGBTQIA clients, relationship counseling, and clients who live in alternative lifestyles including consensual non-monogamy, polyamory, sex work, kink and BDSM.
