Sex & Cancer
A Healing Journey
healing from cancer is an endurance race.
Why not pair it with pleasure?
Getting a cancer diagnosis is terrifying. Learning how to navigate life with a long term illness is not easy. All aspects of our life are affected by this new reality, including our sexuality. For many it goes dormant and becomes less of a focus or priority. This makes sense. We are dealing with so much and don’t want to add another thing to our plate.
When I was faced with a stage 4 colon cancer diagnosis I knew that my work in the realm of sexuality would be an important part of my healing journey. As I was recovering from a successful surgery I realized that I wanted to pair the experience of chemotherapy with pleasure. I wanted to devote my life for the next 6 months to say yes to only that which delighted me… body, mind and soul. And what a beautiful, rich, opening and empowering 6 months it was. I can celebrate now, on the other side of this experience, that there is no evidence of disease in my body.
Our sexuality doesn't die when we are
faced with long term illness.
But it does change.
In some ways these illnesses that we face ask us to show up and do the deeper work that we have been putting off. The work of releasing years of shame and self criticism. The work of allowing feelings and emotions to wash through us and be released. The work of reconnecting to feeling love, acceptance, appreciation and celebration of our bodies. The work of identifying what we truly desire in this life. And then the work of bringing those desires to life.
I am here to be your guide back to yourself. To parts of you that have been living in the shadows, cut off and alone for years. I am here to support you on your journey of integration, repair and healing.
Free Discovery Call
If you're curious about working together, the next step is to have an hour-long discovery call. This is an opportunity for you to get to know me and for me to get to know you. We will explore your desires and what is standing in the way of you getting what you want. You can ask me anything. It's a space for you to gain more clarity on what change you are ready to create in your life. These calls are often tremendously healing and insightful.
