Appreciation

I want to share my appreciation and gratitude for the opportunity to work with Sara. I can see how much I have grown since I began seeing her. I feel more confident in my body, in embracing my sexuality and expressing myself as a sexual person, and in asking for what I need (and knowing that I deserve that) in my sexual relationships. I also appreciate how patient and gentle she has been in inviting me to explore my family history and relationships in our sessions. I am grateful for the way that she allowed me to become comfortable talking about it in my own time and at my own pace. I am very glad to have found LIIST and I would recommend LIIST to anyone looking for a caring, sensitive, queer-inclusive, and knowledgable sex therapist. ~GT

I can’t believe how comfortable I feel talking to you!~HZ
