I'm cherie, sex therapist and mother of Evie (12), Jackson (11), & Zara (9)
Before having kids, I had this idea that it would be the end of having a life of my own. It is not just a notion that was in my head. As girls and women the pervasive message we learn is: your life as a woman is a life of service to others, a life of self sacrifice.
In reality, motherhood “midwifed” me into myself. I learned that loving my children well is directly connected to how I love myself and how I remember my own life. This meant connecting with my sexual and spiritual self and trusting my inner knowing.
As a sex therapist, I love getting to be alongside women as they wake up to themselves and move towards the new sexual and spiritual story that is uniquely theirs. I share the path to owning that your sexuality is yours before it is anyone else’s.
I get to share with women a way in which sexuality can be seen as a force for good in the world. That sexuality is not just about genitals and sex but rather is about all of who we are: heart, body, mind, and soul. I am super excited to be collaborating with Moon Daughters and glad you are on this journey of exploration towards a new understanding of what your sexual story can mean for you and what it can mean for your daughter!
I live in Milwaukee, WI, freshly here as of this past summer after 13 years living in Seattle, WA. I love being in nature, stand up paddle boarding, hot yoga, music & concerts, good food & cocktails, time with close friends: laughing & sharing deeply, road trips, traveling, the smell of lavender, and being in or near water.
