I didn't think we'd ever get back to feeling normal about each other, much less have sex again, but somehow Valerie helped us talk things through and rediscover each other.

Valerie McDonnell, sex therapist &coach

Hi I'm Valerie

I help people empower their sexuality

I became a therapist to help people rise out of sexual trauma—like how my therapist helped me.

I transitioned to coaching to offer a broader array of services—and help people solve problems that don’t fit a diagnosis.

It couldn't be easier—simply decide that you have something to gain by working with a professional sexologist. Then decide to begin.
