Somatic Psychotherapy, Certified Sex Therapy, Sexual Health Coaching & Sextech Consulting

Somatic Psychotherapy

Somatic Psychotherapy is an interdisciplinary practice involving the study of the soma (body) and the psyche (mind). It relies heavily on principles of embodiment—being present in your body in order to most fully understand and engage in the world around you. In my personal practice, somatic psychology does not involve physical touch, though the emotional depth reached is often unparalleled.

The mind and body are too often viewed as separate entities, which implies a split. I believe there is no such thing; one cannot exist without the other. If we are always in our bodies, addictions may arise. If we are always in our heads, it may be hard to experience pleasure and break free from negative thought patterns. Somatic psychotherapy offers solutions by finding balance and pursuing fluidity.

Certified Sex Therapy & Sexual Health Coaching

Why sex therapy as a focus of somatic psychotherapy?

To use Socratic questioning and answer a question with a question: What could be more somatic than sex? In the physiological aspect or “body sense,” sex connotes the idea of two beings joining together in erotic pleasure. In the psychological and “felt sense,” sex plays a powerful role in human bonding. Both physical and emotional sexual connection can lead to stronger relationships with ourselves and with others.

Dr. Holly practices from a sex positive perspective, namely, all sex is good sex as long as it is consensual and pleasurable. Consent and pleasure are both body-based and emotional experiences, and thus fit directly into her somatic sex therapy model.

Sextech Consulting

Dr. Holly’s sextech expertise combines innovative consulting, writing and training services for the most recent advancements in sexuality and technology.

Considered a pioneer in bridging the gap between sexual health education and entertainment, she looks at what’s next on the near and far horizons of technosexuality.

This comprises research and experience utilizing Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), teledildonics and emergent sexual aids including mechanized sex dolls (sexbots). By investigating the influences of emergent technology on sexual health, she identifies how these developments affect individual satisfaction and intimate relationships, from dating apps to long-term partnerships.

Dr. Holly’s reach is comprehensive and serves as a link between industries including mental health, sex therapy, adult entertainment, integrative wellness, academia, pharmaceuticals, sexuality and disability, research and technology. With her breadth of knowledge and real-world involvement, she lends expertise to a significant and rapidly evolving arena that few are investigating. The Next-Sex platform (including forthcoming book) is the culmination of her research and contribution to this field, and sets the stage for trend forecasting in this multi-billion-dollar industry. She is a go-to voice in answering the question, “What’s next for sex?” and believes the opportunity to influence the future of sex is now.
