Recommended: EH Interventions in Sex Therapy

May 18 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Host: EHNW in Portland
In Person Only-Location: Live True Counseling, Portland, Oregon

In this session, participants will explore interventions in sex therapy, engaging in thoughtful discourse that honors the complexity and diversity of human sexuality.

These EHNW salons provide a safe and inclusive space for individuals to explore desires, fears, and questions surrounding sexuality. Rooted in the existential-humanistic approach, we embrace the belief that each person possesses the capacity for self-awareness, personal growth, and meaningful connection.

Participants will examine interventions that honor the uniqueness of the sexual journey.

Join as attendees engage in meaningful dialogue, challenge assumptions, and cultivate a deeper understanding of the complexities of human sexuality.
