Are you Ready to Claim Your Sexual Birthright?
“Galen, our last session had a powerful impact. I never realized how much fear I have buried under my cool, calm exterior. You have such a powerful, yet gentle presence and wisdom that allowed me to feel safe to open up. It was such a relief” Mike C
For over 15 years, I have offered personalized guidance, discussion and education to help people define, embrace and confidently express their authentic sexual desires.

We move at your pace and I help you take this journey a step at a time…or a leap, as you are ready!
“I came to Galen a wounded, vulnerable woman who, due to childhood abuse, was uncomfortable being touched. I was closed off and closed down and not open to receiving pleasure from a man. Today, three years later, I am a strong, healthy woman in love with a wonderful man who loves me back. I know that I wouldn’t have been open to this relationship if Galen hadn’t walked beside me, whle I learned to walk on my own.” Deb

“In our very first session, Galen told me that “healing is a choice you make.” He entered every session fully present, with a high level of integrity, basing his actions on whether they served MY greater good. He taught me to recognize and listen to the different parts of myself, and gave me a safe container to open myself up to vulnerability and fear. Now “intentions” and “boundaries,” things that were foreign and awkward to me before our sessions, are an integrated part of my life. I don’t think he always recognizes the impact he has on his clients’ lives but he changed my life for the better.” DLA
“Galen, a note to reiterate my gratitude for your counseling this past year. The difficult openings that I experienced under your care and expertise continue to open me further and further to joy, to sharing, to making choices in my relationships with the opposite sex, choices that are much more often those of She who I most want to be. As a result, I’m better able also to come through adversity in other arenas more authentically. My life and path are illumined so much more definitively, consciously; my awareness and ability to remain in the Now seems exponentially increased! My experience within it has broadened into more satisfying depths and heights of feelings. Here’s to your work, and to your joy!” S L
