Sexual Health Education
Electrifying learning in an un-charged atmosphere
Need a Reproductive Health Expert?
Discussing reproduction and sexuality is not everyone’s idea of fun, many people feel awkward around these topics. But research shows the more we know about sexuality and options around reproductive health and sex, the more likely we are to adopt healthy habits (like communicating with partners and using condoms) and make smart decisions (like waiting to have sex until we’re ready).
Fortunately, Sex Educators exist who love nothing more than to teach people about sex, sexuality, reproductive health options, and how to keep yourself healthy and sexy.
I combine a professional science educator background with clinical training focused on reproductive and sexual health. In addition, I have completed comprehensive sexuality education facilitator training in Our Whole Lives curriculum for grades 7-12. Our Whole Lives is a comprehensive lifespan sexuality education curriculum developed jointly by the Unitarian Universalist Association and the United Church of Christ. Although it was developed by two religious organizations, the curriculum itself is completely secular, with no religious references or doctrine. It is based on the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education and in all areas either meets or exceeds the National Sexuality Education Standards.
If you are looking for a professional educator to either lead or provide supplementation to sexuality education curriculum (like “ask an NP!” day in health class), contact me. I especially enjoy working with middle and high school youth and answering awkward questions.
