Sexuality Counseling with Sandi Anders, MDiv, E-RYT, CSC, ACS

Sandi Anders, MDiv, E-RYT, CSC, Certified Sexuality Counselor, NashvilleSexuality Counseling: A Supportive Environment for Exploration

Many of us grew up in families where sexual matters were not discussed. Without this modeling, it is often challenging to know how to address sexual difficulties when they arise in adult life. Sexuality Counseling offers a supportive environment for thorough and constructive exploration. Questions and concerns may be talked about openly without fear of embarrassment or criticism.

As a Certified Sexuality Counselor and Sexologist, Sandi Anders is knowledgeable about sexual issues, experienced in talking about them, and focused on helping her clients find solutions to the issues that are troubling them.
