“𝐘𝗼𝐮𝐫 𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝗺𝐩𝗼𝐫𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐭𝗼 𝗺𝐞“
Every lover wants to hear that, and often we don’t say it enough or don’t know how to. Much like the ways we verbally communicate, physically we often give to another in the way we ourselves like to receive.
As a s*x therapist and relationship counselor, clients often say that they don’t feel heard in the bedroom. Sometimes it is also that they are not speaking clearly with what they desire from their partner. You are the teacher of your body. You can train it to respond and help your partner learn how to play your arousal. Self pleasure is important to knowing how your body likes to be touched instead of waiting for someone else to magically know how to do it for you. Toys and textures and lubricants can be a wonderful aid in self discovery.
No body is the same. Know thyself. Love thyself and then share that knowledge with your partner and vice versa.

National Su***de Prevention Lifeline '1-800-273-TALK (8255)'

This can never be shared enough. Prayers and resources for all those suffering. Take a moment please and repost to honor those we are grieving for today.

If you or someone you know feels hopeless or like they have no reason to live, call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) for help and support.


Accepting a few new clients for individual or couples work. PM me for details.

[04/04/19]   On tonight’s Heart Talk Radio, Dr. Anne is addressing the caretaker dynamic. In a dysfunctional family usually the eldest sibling, or the eldest female sibling, winds up taking care of the other siblings, the home and the parent(s). They get their identity, their validation and they perceive, their love from this roll. They wind up carrying this caretaking into their adult life creating discord over control issues and lack of the perceived recognition they believe is their due for their good works and sacrifices.
Tune in to Heart Talk tonight to KSFR 101.1FM at 6:30 MST and call in with your comments! 505-438-1382


I spent about twenty years teaching people to swim. Babies, teens, even very old people, and holding them while they learned to float was the most intimate of moments. They would panic with their eyes and tense their bodies as I supported them and told them it was ok to let go, relax and look up to the sky. Very quickly I would see a sense of peace and even pleasure come over them. And then they would stand up and disrupt it all too soon.
Resistance to suffering is something we all struggle against. Most of us want to avoid suffering and feeling pain at all cost, so we hide and project our pain into others. We hide from suffering by using things outside of ourselves to cover up the wound. Alcohol, spending, s*x, even travel are common crutches we turn to at the first sign of discomfort to self soothe. But what we resist, persists. So then the rationale is why not more of those things that provide just a momentary relief?
Stop and float. The only way out of through. I know it feels like it’s going to crack you wide open and you’ll shatter. I know you’ve been taught to run from pain and turn away from the thoughts that creep in in the middle of the night. There is something bigger that will hold you, and there will people that will help you learn how to let go into the feelings. I’m honored to sit with my clients so they know the suffering won’t shatter them in their aloneness. It is not a momentary float and back to where we stood previously, but it is floating so you are carried somewhere else, to calmer still waters. .
Mediation and spirituality are like floating. Our mind fights it until we settle and swim into the great waterfall of the Universe ✨I can teach you how to swim, but let yourself float a little longer.


Happy International Women’s Day! In a time when we are reclaiming, owning, creating, changing the narratives, restructuring, dismantling that which is not healthy, and encouraging a new way. We are proud to be a part of and a support to all of the women dedicated to the healing of the planet, the healing of communities worldwide.

“This photograph features 30+ women of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities. Wearing absolutely no makeup and in outfits styled to match the tone of their skin, they combated unhealthy beauty standards by celebrating their so-called “flaws” proving that beauty is no one color, size, or shape, and that true empowerment is much deeper than the skin. Posing together, these women celebrated the strength that lies in community and the power that lies in unity.” — photographer @brianagardener for @herplaceisin .
