A message from the Executive Director:

Much of the nation is struggling to process the recent murders of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and last week, George Floyd, two of whom were killed by law enforcement officers. If we expand the lens, however, they were all victims of a complex and racist system of oppression that reinforces subjugation of Black and Brown individuals and communities in every aspect of life. This system is not new, but has existed for hundreds of years, and these recurring and unnerving incidents serve as a fleeting glimpse for White Americans of the consequences of such a system, if we choose to pay attention. For Black and Brown Americans, however, these incidents are a constant retraumatization, a reminder of a system that is not set up for them but rather against them.

We at the Carolina Sexual Wellness Center are aware that any system that reinforces injustice and harms Black and Brown communities and individuals is in opposition to both our values and mission as an organization, and we have been struggling to determine what we can and should do to realign the system with our values. We hear and are part of the collective grief of the nation, and it has become clear that silence is not an option. We are a social justice organization at heart. As the Executive Director, it is my belief that in order to be an effective sex and gender therapist one has to be part of the revolution, willing to challenge the problematic and inaccurate ideas about sex, sexuality and gender that are steeped into our culture. We have been vocal about our commitment to the LGBTQ+ community by providing affirming therapy and inclusive community education events, we have been sensitive to class issues by providing a financial hardship program for un/under-insured folks to have access to care, and we work to ensure that our therapists are providing culturally competent care to their clients by providing supervision through a multicultural lens.

But as we work to increase social justice in our corner of the world and beyond, it is clear that we as an organization have more work to do. We are making a public commitment to continue to strive for increased representation of Black and Brown folks in our organization at all levels. We will work to recruit and train more Black and Brown therapists to be sex positive sex therapists who want to lead the revolution. We will provide community education events and opportunities that acknowledge and meet the specific sex education needs of Black and Brown communities. We will partner with other social justice organizations to have a broader reach in dismantling systems of oppression. We will commit to having all of our therapists go through formal training on multicultural competence with emphasis on the negative impact of systemic racism on mental health issues of our clients. These are our commitments to the community.

We want to ensure that every therapist in the community is knowledgeable and comfortable enough to discuss issues related to sex and sexuality with their clients from a non-judgmental and factually accurate perspective.


We therefore offer supervision and training opportunities (including internships and practica) for individuals wanting to specialize or simply gain more of an understanding of how to accommodate their client’s sexual issues in therapy.
