Looking for fast answers to your questions, or specific advice tailored to your situation? Take a look at this useful, convenient, and affordable option.

How it works

As soon as you sign up for a session, you’ll get an email confirmation from me with an intake form for you to fill out. It will help you organize your thoughts and questions, and help me learn a bit about your background.

You can make your responses as short or as long as you want – basically think of it as your opportunity to reflect on your situation and gather your thoughts. Almost as if you were writing in a journal, or to a friend.

Within 48 hours, you’ll get a personal response with my feedback, advice, and suggested exercises, written out in detail.

“I was beyond nervous about reaching out to a sex therapist – plus I’m a student on a tight budget – so I was drawn to the convenience and affordability of Vanessa’s email consultation sessions. I was skeptical about how much help she could offer via email, but I was amazed by all of her insights. The email I received back from her was jam-packed with answers and ideas that I referred back to for months to come.”

- Alyson C.
