Sexology

Release Date: 01/24/2017

 

Sexology Podcast EP03 – Tamara Powell

 

Welcome to episode 03 of the Sexology Podcast, today my guest is Tamara Powell, LMHC. Tamara is the owner of Arya Therapy Services, the now global phenomenon in holistic health and healing. More recently, she founded Tales from a Trapezoid dedicated to the more raw and edgier side of life, working with those who may often feel like a trapezoid in a world full of circles.

 

Tamara tends not to believe in limitations or pathology, only what she calls the “nearsightedness of that comes from either not knowing better OR creative, yet maladaptive attempts to get one’s needs met.” Her goal is to assist individuals and couples in tackling all of life’s challenges, whether mentally, emotionally, or spiritually.
