Jasmin strives to provide a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental space for clients to talk about and resolve sexual challenges in their lives. Jasmin’s work is influenced by a person-in-environment approach which explores the impact of a person’s environment on their sexual, mental, and emotional health along with a focus on self-acceptance, self-love, authenticity, and promoting healthy sexuality.
