HI THERE!

I’m Vanessa Marin, a licensed psychotherapist and writer specializing in sex.

I’m here to help you stop feeling embarrassed and ashamed and start having way more fun in the bedroom.

The most important thing for you to know is that this is not just a job for me – I get so much joy out of helping people take their sex lives from ordinary to extraordinary!

If you’re thinking that “Sex Therapist” sounds like an odd job title, let me assure you that I know my stuff.

I have bachelor’s degrees in human sexuality and sociology from Brown University, and a master’s degree in counseling psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies. I’m also a licensed psychotherapist (#78931). I’ve served as a featured expert in magazines and websites over 1,000 times. (Check out the evidence here!)

I’m a born-and-raised California girl, currently based in LA. Don’t let the baby face fool you; I’m solidly in my mid-thirties.

Over the last decade, I’ve been fortunate enough to have an amazing partner in crime: my husband, Xander. He has helped me learn so many valuable lessons, like:

  • How to keep sex interesting, even though we’ve done it thousands of times.
  • How to continue prioritizing sex and each other, even when we’re busy, stressed, and cranky.
  • How to talk about sex, even when we’re embarrassed.
  • How to work together as a team to create a sex life that feels exciting and satisfying to us both.

Believe it or not, Vanessa Marin Sex Therapy is actually a family business! Yes, we recognize that a family sex therapy business sounds pretty silly, but we do it because we’re all passionate about this work.

Xander is charge of making sure the business runs smoothly behind the scenes, and my sister Jennifer helps with social media and online marketing.

And there’s more! Our little buddies Winston and Maggie are the Vanessa Marin Sex Therapy mascots. Here they are hard at work ;)

Together, the five of us strive to provide the highest-quality sex therapy and education through my online programs and one-on-one coaching services. (OK, maybe Winston and Maggie don’t do too much, but they sure do look cute!)

I can rattle off all my trainings, qualifications, and accolades, but I think what you really want to know is, “Can she help me?”

My answer is a wholehearted “yes!”

I don’t just say I’m a sex therapist to seem interesting at dinner parties. I’ve been involved in sex therapy, coaching, education, and research since 2002, and I’ve helped thousands of clients experience incredible transformations.

I know the thought of signing up for sex therapy might seem intimidating or strange at first, but I think you came to my website because you’re ready for change.
