About Taara

I first learned about somatic experiencing during the height of the pandemic in 2020. My nervous system was dysregulated, previous traumas were percolating to the surface of my life and my mental health was in distress. I was recommended to a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and decided, "why not try it out?" My first session with this practitioner was like NOTHING I had experienced in all my years of traditional therapy. I immediately felt shifts in my body that I never had been able to grasp before.

After experiencing the healing benefits somatic experiencing offered, I took the plunge and enroll with The Institute for the Study of Somatic Sex Education (ISSSE). THIS is what I had been waiting for my entire life! My passion for sex education coupled with somatics and sexological bodywork is my career calling!

About Taara

What is Somatic Sex Education?

Somatic Sex Education (SSE) is a trauma-informed and client-led approach that fills the niche between therapy and bodywork. I integrate somatics sometimes with a hands on approach (hand on and sometimes hands in). SSE is all about neuroplasticity. It is PLEASURE BASED HEALING - using pleasure as a healing modality specific to sexual and trauma healing. It is body-based sex education where you can map and learn more about your body and pleasure. Genital touch is an option - I am professionally trained to touch genitals. This offering is sometimes for learning more about your body and your pleasure, scar de-armoring, anatomy mapping, pleasure mapping, and healing sexual trauma.⁠


"Somatic Sex Educators (SSE's) support people on their journey to sexual wholeness through body-based exercises and experiences designed to nurture and awaken the sensual self. We might coach breath, movement, body awareness, boundary setting, communication, experiential anatomy, sensate focus, massage, erotic trance, attunement and other body-based teachings about sex.  SSE is grounded in the science of neuroplasticity and informed by polyvagal theory. The modality is trauma-informed, and able to embrace the incredible diversity of neurology, gender and gender expression, with awareness of the impact of normative culture and privilege on people’s access to sexual expression."**

"In addition, SSEs offer an inclusive, non-judgmental approach, regardless of race, sexual orientation, gender identity, or socioeconomic status."**
