Welcome to Unlocking Desire

Helping Clients Navigate Desire Discrepancy and Low Libido! Join us for an experiential and engaging workshop led by Rachel Zaar, where we will explore practical approaches to support individuals and couples. Don’t miss this opportunity to join us in conversation, build your skills, and expand your knowledge in this important area of sexual health! We believe pleasure is for all people, and this workshop integrates a trauma informed and sex-inclusive approach.

Objectives

1. Participants will be able to identify and differentiate between psychological, relational, and physiological factors contributing to low libido and desire discrepancy in individuals and couples.

2. Participants will increase their repertoire of interventions to effectively address low libido and desire discrepancy in therapy, including cognitive-behavioral, psychoeducation, and mindfulness techniques.
