Samar Poorlakani, MA, LPC, works in a private practice in South Austin.

Samar hopes to create a safe and non-judgmental space for her clients to be able to discuss sex, their sexual identity, and sexual behaviors without shame and awkwardness. Outside of alternative sexual lifestyles, Samar also has experience with sexual health and dysfunctions, healing from infidelity, communication and conflict repair, and restoring intimacy.

SHA @ AASECT

Denver Happy Hour

We are pleased to invite you and your friends to an impromptu Happy Hour with Giveaways and Games sponsored by The Sexual Health Alliance, Uberlube, MysteryVibe and More on Friday June 15th @ 5:30pm Lobby Bar. Our Community Director, Emily Bridge, LPC alongside Samar Poorlakani, LPC will be handling Bingo Bango! and more fun (yes, similar to last year in Vegas). 

Hang out with us and learn about our upcoming full certification program we are developing with Dr. Chris Donaghue and all the other fun programs we run in our three regions and 7 cities.

The Sexual Health Alliance provides local training and community to all professionals and non-professionals. Our events and programming are intended to build community, spark dialogue and encourage collaboration. We build communities that are well-informed and all inclusive. We recognize that general therapists and medical professionals receive little to no education in sexuality in graduate training programs and it is a significant issue. We’re dedicated to bringing the brightest minds and biggest game changers in sexual health to the Southwest, Great Lakes, and Golden Coast. See you there!

If you would like to purchase a 3D printed Clitoris for your practice, office or educational agency, email swsexualhealth@gmail.com.

Why is this important? Well, until recently the clitoris was thought to be the the size of a pea. But in 1998, Urology surgeon Dr. Helen O'Connell, helped the world understand that the clitoris is actually bigger by using magnetic resonance imaging.

The clitoris has 8,000 sensitive nerve endings (that's twice as many as in the glans of a penis) and continues to grow throughout a woman's life.

A special thank you to Leah for helping us organize this game! Leah Love is a Tantra and Sacred Sexuality teacher.  She helps women find their own power to heal, truly love themselves, and embrace their bodies through Tantric and Taoist practices.  These practices help women to connect to their own sacred feminine power source to ground themselves in their bodies, feel more open, accepting and loving, happier, and more orgasmic.  Leah’s specialty is teaching Taoist Jade Egg techniques to strengthen the pelvic floor, increase sensation, and release emotional blocks. To find out more visit - AwakenEmpowerHeal.com
